Music for Motor Tasks

Studies have shown that babies over about three months can use music as a mnemonic device to remember motor tasks. That’s why it helps to sing or play specific songs when you do specific activities. Sing the same lullaby at night or a song about the sunrise each morning. Put on dinner-making music, or quiet reading-time music.
