Music is one of those good things in life which can never go wrong with anyone! Did you know it’s great for your child’s brain development too? Being a singer and musician myself, I see the benefits of music for my son every day! So, let’s get to know some of the six amazing classical music for kids and why it is excellent for your kids.

What Exactly Is Good Music Though?

Bollywood music rules in India, but there’s a bit of junk in music, just like junk food. What’s healthy music, then? You probably know it at the back of your mind but think it is boring and your child might not like it. Yes, I am talking about the rich heritage of Indian Classical Music for kids, and I want to break that myth.

Let Me Explain Why It Is Great For Your Kids

  • Indian classical music works as a therapy because it encompasses the whole process of human evolution in how the raga is developed.
  • Rhythm in Indian classical music excites the most primitive and higher cognitive areas and stimulates the motor cortex part of our brain.
  • Indian classical music for kids inculcates a sense of structure and rhythm, facilitating interesting, new neural connections in the brain.

To debunk the myth, I have picked six great tracks along with the time of the day when you can play them. I have included different ragas, styles of compositions, singers and tempos. This is a decently complete list to start playing to your child to begin with –

Rajan & Sajan Mishra – Tarana – Raaga Bhairav (Morning)

In this music, Pandits Rajan and Sajan Mishra flawlessly portray a Tarana in Raga Bhairav. These talented brothers come from a 300-year-old Banaras gharana khyal singing dynasty.

Pandit Sanjeev Abhyankar – Raaga Bhimpalaasi (Afternoon)

Pt Sanjeev Abhyankar of the Mewati Gharana has ushered in a new era in Indian classical music for children. In this world, his charming and wonderful voice can bring a raag to life.

Kishori Amonkar – Raaga Yaman (Evening)

 Being immortal through the voice, Raag Yaman is the most powerful and magical of all the Raagas. Gaan Saraswati Kishori Amonkar Jee’s voice and singing style make it suhaaga. This music can make you a bit emotional because of the emotions it evokes.

Shobha Gurtu – Thumri – Raaga Khamaj (Night)

Shobha Gurtu, the late ‘Thumri Queen,’ was known for singing thumri’s Abhinaya Ang’ in a deep throat.

Pandit Jasraj & Shruti Sandolikar – Raaga Des (Night)

In this classical music for children, Panditji’s voice will take you through the journey of eternal silence and calmness.

Ashwini Bhide – Raaga Miya Ki Malhaar (Midnight)

The composition of this beautiful classical music for kids is played by one of the most intriguing devices to sum up a raag through musical and lyrical nuances.

It is not mandatory to play a certain Raaga at that time ONLY, but the effect it creates is the best when played at the recommended time of the day.

Did I tell you, you can also play music when your child is asleep? It is, in fact, very beneficial. Classical music for kids goes straight into their subconscious mind when played while asleep. So go ahead and play that midnight Raaga when your child sleeps at night. Or the afternoon Raaga when she is taking a nap during the day.

So, next time you hand over that mobile or play music, play these 6 tracks first! It takes practice for the ears to appreciate Indian classical music, so please give yourself and your child some time before giving up on it! Also, even if your child doesn’t like it, it is doing wonders to his brain.
