Some research has shown that Mozart's music relaxes and stimulates children, from an early age, more than any other song. The author of the book 'The Mozart Effect for Children', Don cambell, explains that Mozart's music is pure, simple and, in turn, mysterious and accessible. And that those ingredients stimulate growth neurons of the kids.
According to Cambell, the musicstimulates neural connections in the baby's brain, from the 18th week of gestation. When the baby is born and grows 'music stimulates and improves its physiology, intelligence and behavior'. The author spares no words to explain the great benefits of music for children.
According to Cambell's observations, students who listen to ten minutes of Mozart's Sonata for Two Pianos in 'D major' immediately before taking IQ tests tend to score better in the spatial-temporal part Of the tests.
Don Campbell relates in his book that numerous studies have been conducted analyzing the phenomenon. The rhythms, melodies and especially the frequencies of the patterns in Mozart's compositions stimulate and recharge the creative and motivating regions of the brain. This music relaxes and keeps babies attentive.
Musical patterns have been studied at the University of California for more than twenty years and the effect they produce is observed. Of all the musical combinations studied, those composed by Mozart, due to their ingenuity and simplicity, are the ones that produce the most positive effects.
For this reason, they created a series of videos and CDs for children from 3 to 36 months, called 'Discovering the world with Mozart'. The psychologist Carolina Micha and the general director Daniel Shammah, authors of the material, affirm that 'stimulating the baby is giving him the right tools for his age, helping him overcome challenges'.
Throughout the thirty minutes of the video, the images are accompanied by simple musical arrangements of pieces such as Rondo alla Turca; Sonata No. 16, third movement; the magic Flute; Sona No. 15 for piano in C major; minuet in F major; Allegro in B Flat; or the Piano Concerto in D Major. Music envelops and quilts the images of flowers, bubbles, turtles, bees, fish, boats, starfish, cats, fruits, toys, etc.
