Can Classical Music Make Smarter Babies?

Have you ever tried playing some classical music while you were pregnant? The Mozart Effect of making the infant smarter if exposed to classical music is however unfounded says researchers at Appalachian State University.

While experts claim that music has indeed improved the test results of some college students at the University of California at Irvine in 1993 and in 1995, the music effect has lasted only 15 minutes.

The lead researcher of the Irvine Study asserts in a Forbes article that listening to classical music can indeed make baby smarter, however, it can prime the brain in answering mathematical problems.

Different kids may have various styles in learning. So, for one, letting the kids study while having a classical music on air can soothe them and make them concentrate on their work.

While this too can be contested too, I shall be seeking out classic songs  to help me focus on my graduate school reviews. Listening to music may not boost our babies' IQ but by doing so, we can open opportunities to them to like music or to feel calm.
