From a very early age children make sounds, murmur, sing, move around and dance in a very natural way. They communicate in their "music language" which can be regarded as pre-verbal communication. As they get older, they develop their mother tongue using these pre-verbal musical elements.
Brain research in recent years has confirmed a deep and profound relationship between music and language learning. Also, research indicates that small children are pre-disposed to learning foreign languages. Moreover, listening, perceiving, imitating, and creating are basic skills in both language and music.
