Mozart for Babies
Mozart for Babies
by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Exposing a child to music at an early age may have a direct influence on the baby's development of creative and intellectual abilities. All of these compositions uniquely incorporate the distinctive sound of the music box.

This music was composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart who was born in Vienna in 1756. Mozart showed musical talent at a very early age, composing at age five, and performing before the Bavarian elector and the Austrian empress at age six. By 18, he had composed seven operas. He died from a feverish illness in 1791 at the young age of 35. The universal recognition of Mozart's genius since his death has never wavered among professional musicians and the general public.

Once a baby is born, he or she quickly discovers a world filled with new sensations and experiences. Unlike adults, who depend mostly on seeing, babies rely on hearing, touching, tasting, and smelling. The music featured on Mozart for Babies contains flowing and lyrical melodies that will hold your baby's attention. The soothing sounds of the music box, the soft rhythms and distinct melodies, and the beautiful arrangements, will provide a calming environment for your baby.
 
Music is a wonderful way to help babies sleep. The newborn has a limited experience with musical complexity, so the emphasis must be on simplicity, gentle rhythms, uncomplicated harmonies, and soft tones.
 
The day my granddaughter Francie came home from the hospital, my daughter-in-law Molly was rocking her and humming a sweet lullaby. That evening, Francie was introduced to Mozart, and she has been listening to him ever since.  She turns three this month, and she does like to listen to "princess music," but most nights she still asks for her "quiet time" music.

You can help your baby make its way through the music with the sound and expression of your voice. Rocking your baby gently to the rhythm of the music will help the baby relax and fall asleep. Since babies also enjoy movement, swaying your baby to the music will create a soothing atmosphere. Music can provide new emotional connections for both you and your baby.
 
Music may even help strengthen premature babies. Researchers from Brigham Young University studied the effects of music on 33 premature infants. Cassette players piped voices of men and women singing lullabies into each baby's crib for 40 minutes a day for four days. When doctors examined the babies on the fourth day, they found that babies who were exposed to music gained more weight, and had lower blood pressure and a stronger heartbeat.
 
Babies seem to be able to tell a melody from speech, even if they aren't sophisticated enough to know anything about music. For example, Norman Weinberger, a cognitive sciences and psychology professor at the University of California at Irvine, says in one study, babies as young as 4 months old seemed to know when researchers played the "Happy Birthday" song incorrectly.
This music was composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and arranged and produced by Georg Gabler. It was published by Klick Verlag AG, Switzerland.  The concept was developed by Corina Fortmann.

My daughter and I have enjoyed listing to this CD. The songs are calming and help her fall asleep at night. The music helps keep her calm and she stays in her bed.

The music was relaxing, soothing and yes, my little Isabella and I, played pretty little ballerina's to the music. Afterward we sat down for some breakfast and quiet time as we enjoyed the music together. It really helped us wake up and get ready for the day ahead of us, there was no rushing, no hustle and bustle, no urgency, just a relaxing pick up in the morning!
