BENEFITS OF MUSIC

It is a known fact that the auditory system of babies forms early.  The ear is the first sensory organ to develop brain connections.  During the first few weeks in utero, as the infants are growing so is their ability to process sound.   By the time a baby is born they can recognize the sound of their parent’s voice and can identify songs and melodies.  According to an article done by Angela England, “Even preemies show a preference for soothing classical music over harsher rock beats and studies done in Neonatal Intensive Care Units with premature infants show that soothing music from the Baroque period can lower the blood pressure and stress hormones of these young infants. ”**

Music can have a powerful effect on us.  Each form of music emotes different feelings or sensations.  While music may not make our babies smarter, some researchers believe that certain types of classical music by Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and Vivaldi may enable certain brain connections resulting in better comprehension.  While this is not by any means proven, the mystery of the possibilities begs you to at least take a closer look.  Can listening to classical music result in the brain’s ability to absorb information more effectively and possibly enhance verbal ability?  The question, until proven directly will forever be debated by psychologists.  If not for anything, turning on some classical music, which is an element of KiddiCards, can be fun and enjoyable for you and your baby.  The mood established from our classical masterpiece during the interactive education process might result in better absorption of information.  If not anything else perhaps your baby might develop an appreciation for music.
