Music's Impact on Movement

With over 18 months of no face-to-face education, teachers around the globe are noticing a dip in young students' fine motor-skills. Underdevelopment of fine motor skills also meant that muscle memory has been impacted. Fret not, music might be the answer! Joining us this week is resident music therapist Dr Indra Selverajah, as we discover how music lessons can be used not only to enhance the social and cognitive skills in children of all ages but also fine-tunes their motor skills.
