There of their babies to increase their intelligence.

There are many studies
that relate classical music and a baby’s intelligence. As all pregnant woman
and current mothers want their children to be the smartest kid in class, they
correlate classical music in the development of their babies to increase their
intelligence. Parents naturally want the best for their babies, so any natural
environmental ideas that will help increase their babies intelligence will be
put to use. The developmental outcome of this study found by listening to
classical music your baby can possibly be as smart as Einstein, well that
perhaps a little promising but what is true is that the highs and lows of the
classical music sounds is what triggers a babies’ brain to grow because it
stimulates areas in the brain responsible for motor actions, emotions, and
creativity.

            In 1993, a short paper was published on the “Mozart
Effect” study. According to the article 36 college students participated in the
study. The outcome of the study revealed that students who listened to Mozart
sonata for a few minutes before taking a test scored higher than those who did
not listen to classical music or any other music. Although the study does say
that the effect may be temporary, I believe that if the students continue to
listen to classical music, the effect can become permanent. This study was controversial,
as well as any studies on this topic. There are a lot of scientists that do not
agree with these studies because they need more proof that this can be real. I
disagree because multiple studies have come up with same results.

            After this study was done, the media and politicians responded
saying that listening to classical music or any type of music offered several
benefits to the developing baby. Music has been related to stress relief and
has helped alleviate physical and mental health problems. Music is universal, I
see all the time that Spanish music like meringue, salsa, and bachata are being
heard all over the world. A lot of companies still market classical music to
parents of children; they do believe in the studies conducted by universities.
Most of the companies that provide this music for the parents of children are
very successful and encourage the parents to purchase the classical music
because they have studies that show greater intelligence to those who listen to
it.

            Music has been around for centuries to soothe one’s mind
or to arouse energy in the brain and body, which triggers the person to dance, which
causes sweat and the release of endorphins. Endorphins are good for the brain
and the body. I say it’s what keeps us happy. So, what can we say about
classical music for babies? Yes it can help develop the brain and can make
babies smarter or more cognitive. I believe the study on college students shows
that college students may do better on a quiz after listening to Mozart sonata
but does not prove that classical music make babies smarter. Now there is some
classical music that perhaps not appropriate for babies because is probably too
loud and violent. Some parents have a difficult time picking songs for their
children, because of the different classical music there is. There are many
companies that take the role of producing CD’s or uploading on YouTube the
appropriate classical music for babies.

            Unlike many types of music, classical tunes have a
calming effect on the human mind and body. The structure and slow tunes relax
the mind and, according to some studies, even the heart. This can help babies
sleep and improve their mental health. Babies that have a hard time sleeping
can benefit from music. Those that have suffered emotional trauma can also
benefit from the soothing sounds of music.

 There is also the same article states a strong
correlation between music and language development. Young children that listen
to classical music might learn to talk and read faster. This is because the
areas of the brain that are being stimulated by the music is developing much sooner
than those who do not listen to classical music. As a result babies and
children may also develop better memories and listening skills, which are significant
to learning language.

I
am interested in learning more about this topic and how more studies can be
done to correlate the findings of the earlier studies. I am not a mother yet,
but as a future mother, having this knowledge about the topic will be
beneficial, I do plan on applying the “Mozart Effect” on my children rather or
not it makes babies smarter it is good to introduce early on the classical music
of Mozart who was a great composer. This topic will always be controversial because
there’s not a scientific backup for it and most people need that scientific
statistics to really believe something.
