Raising Musical Children

I remember how I felt about this when I was expecting my first child. I wanted to raise a musical child if I could. Even though I had earned a university degree in music, I wanted answers to the same question. Can you teach your unborn baby music?

At the time, it was popular for all expectant mothers to attend childbirth classes of some kind. In class, and certainly from the mothers of many of my private piano students, I learned motherly wisdom. Though it sounded strange to me at first, as I reflect on it now, it all made sense. It is not so much teaching your unborn baby music, as it is creating an environment where they can hear many types of music before they are born.

It is important that the new child music box matches the decor of the room. So ask parents what colors they plan to use for the nursery. If the new box matches in style and color, it will be a great addition to the nursery design.

How Baby Music Can Make Your Child Smarter

Baby music and intelligence - it's been a source of continued studies for both childcare experts and scientists alike. As parents become more invested in giving their children the tools they need for exceptional social, mental and physical development - even while still in the womb - many psychologists and scientists have become intrigued by the conjecture that listening to the right baby music can not only make your child smarter; it can even help your child become a more socially intelligent adult.

There's no shortage of research out there to support the hypothesis that babies who listen to classical music - even while in the womb - are quicker to learn and get better grades on schoolwork than their peers who didn't listen to classical music as a baby. Manufacturers have certainly picked up on this trend and have developed an entire empire dedicated to using music as a tool for increasing mental and social intelligence. Brands like Baby Beethoven® have become some of the most popular products on the market today, with more parents than ever curious about baby music and how it can positively influence their own infant.
