Toddlers who are exposed to [music instruments](http://www.gear4music.com) at an early age will develop valuable skills that will benefit them later on as they move onto primary school, according to a music tutor. Kristi Norton, a Gymboree music instructor, has been waxing lyrical about the fruitful benefits of allowing toddlers to get their hands on a wide variety of music instruments right from the get go, reported Your Houston News. She said: "Just recently I was reading an article out of UCLA, and they've just done so much research that shows that music actually exercises the brain. "Those synapses between that connect the brain cells, it actually strengthens them." Ms Norton works for Gymboree Play & Music, which specifically engages children from the age of six months up to the age of five in a variety of musical activities. This includes things like learning about melody and pitch and then, as they get older, exposing them to proper classes where they start to develop real music skills. "They’ve gone from wanting to chew on the [instruments](http://www.gear4music.com) at six months to the bigger kids … they hear the music, they start to do the motions and really do recognise the instruments, what they do, why they do it, what goes with what," Ms Norton told the online news provider. A few years ago, a study published in the journal Psychology of Music claimed children who are exposed to music tuition from an early age show superior reading skills than their non-musical counterparts.
