Mozart and Babies

Postby joelamosobadiah » Thu Feb 01, 2007 9:08 pm

Hey, my friends and I are having a "deep" discussion. What does everybody think of the validity of Mozart making babies smarter when they grow up? I have a 45 minute class now, but we were wondering what all you "experts" thought. :-b ;-D

Heck yeah Mozart makes you more smarter! My parents played that dood for me when I was a kid and now I'm hecka smart! :-b

Seriously though I think it might stimulate certain parts of the brain that may lead to more brain power, I dunno. :-?

There is some whole funky theory (maybe not as funky as I think) that if you listen to soothing music when your baby is really young (or maybe not even born) it'll make the person more calm as they get older...

Who knows though it's all theory. Sure there could be some truth to it. I voted who cares.

It's all a scam by companies that produce this kinda crap for babies. There's lots of smart people that didn't listen to Mozart. So...

The type of parents that would do this for their babies are no doubt the type of parents that do other things to encourage the intellectual development of their babies and so yes, there are no doubt positive results shown as a result but not solely due to the music - IMO.

LOL, I have missed your sarcastic and humorous presence here. :-b

I guess I have become really used to it cause my friends were reading the posts and they were all laughing out loud at that post. I guess I have kinda come to take it for granted. :-b ;-D

Good to have ya back.

It's not just Mozart, it's classical music in general. Where I'm not sure it can be proven one way or the other, it certainly makes sense. The structure of classical music is significantly more complicated than most modern music and it would only stand to reason that your brain would have to work a lot harder to interpret classical music than a simple three chord modern song. I would probably put jazz into this same category... although who wants to listen to jazz. :-t :-b

Personally I think playing Mozart or classical music for your babies is just asking for them to get a beatdown when they grow older. Kids tend to form their "taste" in music and such at an early age, and if you make your kid a classical-music weenie they're gonna get beats when they come out of the closet at such a young age !+)
