Listen to classicalmusic
When we think about our ears, we usually focus on hearing. That iscertainly the most obvious function, but there is more to the ear than hearing.
Scientific research has verified that the ear is the first organ to befully functional, being completely formed when the fetus is four and a halfmonths old. This is why stimulation to the central nervous system, via music,provides an important ingredient to your child's early brain development.
Musical sounds are among the first stimuli that an infant responds toand your baby will enjoy music instinctively; but what type of music is"good" for your baby? Recent studies have shown that certain types ofmusic - especially the music of the classical composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart- have had many positive effects when played for newborns and older children.
Learn with classical music
From the momentchildren are born they enter a new world of light, energy and sound. Everymoment becomes a new experience in mental and sensory stimulation. It isimportant that your newborn is provided with the best stimuli possible toencourage the development of communication skills, attention span, quality of speech,memory and maturity.
Scientists are justbeginning to understand how classical music can provide stimulation to thedeveloping brain. Recent studies have shown that the cortical neurons, whichare used for such things as mathematics and abstract reasoning, respond morequickly and are strengthened by the rhythms, melodies and high frequencies thatare found in classical music.
At a very early age,
children have the ability to perceive patterns and how they develop. Therhythms, melodies, and high frequencies of classical music stimulate and chargethe creative and motivational regions of the brain: it is these specificfrequencies and patterns that "exercise" the neural pathways in yourchild's brain.
During every stage ofyour child's development, creativity is a central part of their inner growth.
As children grow, so does their need to expand upon what they've learned.
We at Naxos of Americabelieve that classical music can and does provide the stimuli needed to helpyour child realize their full potential. The music presented here is meant tolast a lifetime; a lifetime of listening, learning and growing.
