Does Mozart Make Babies Smarter

Does Mozart make babies smarter? I compiled some facts about the effect classical music has on children and what else it could do for teens and adults. But the main question is if it scientifically improves the mental skills of a child.

Science says that it has not been proven. But Mozart still has positive influences on all ages. Bonnie Ward Simon, a music educator, says that improving the senses of a child is very important. She thinks it's best to develop the skills of a child at an early age. TV and Internet videos don't have positive effects like music does. Bonnie also says, and I quote, 'The visual sense does take over very quickly. There's too much look and not listen today.' Her theory is that children cannot imagine as well and make up pictures because it's all been reprogrammed. She says that children should be listening more to music than watching TV and I agree.

Dr. Victor Strasburg, a clinical pediatrician, says that TV is potentially harmful, but they don't know about music.

The Mozart effect - The actual theory has been studied by many universities and also by Dr. Alfred A. Tomatisin (who studied it for 30 years!). The Mozart effect has been studied many times over but there has never been proof of results. Although at one university they had students listen to Mozart and nothing before tests and there were more results when they listened to Mozart. It seemed to have helped them focus on their tests and score better. Maybe I will listen to classical music before some of my tests!

Mozart for adults is also a good idea. It probably won't make you any smarter and you definitely will not score higher on tests because you are out of school but it does help with nerves. Listening to Mozart or classical music in general is good if you want to relax or calm down. A couple of other good genres are jazz, nature sounds, or romantic songs. If you know other genres of music that are more relaxing then listen to those! I don't think adults relax enough. With a stressful job and family to care for you never get time for yourself. I think that everyone should take some time out of his or her day to have fun or relax. Do what ever you like best and enjoy it. Music is probably one of the best ways to let out your feelings and express yourself.

Back to babies, even though music may not make your child smarter it will still help them with their growth development. It will help with their hearing senses and if it is an educational song they will memorize the words and learn lessons. So go to the stores and buy a bunch of fun, wacky songs for you and your child to sing along to. Believe me if will go a long way. To answer the question fully, the Mozart effect doesn't work. But it has good effects for adults, tens, and children.
