Singing is one of the greatest illness preventions!

Children are also experiencing a tremendous lack of sleep and rhythm in their lives. Sleep as we know, is of critical importance to a child’s health, well being and inner balance. The more we can establish a joyful rhythmic organization to their day and evening before bed, it is more possible to have a peaceful, ‘rest-filled ‘sleep. We can create a rhythmical; harmonizing mood by singing through the day and evening with our children. In addition to having a harmonizing effect on their physiological processes, singing lullabies before bed supports  our children emotionally, helping him or her towards balance and peace
