5 reasons to introduce classical music to kids

Ever heard of the Mozart effect? It’s the idea that if children or even babies listen to classical music they will become more intelligent, from encouraging imagination, improving memory to building listening skills. And that’s because a whole lot of brain ticking happens as kids listen to classical music.

5 reasons to introduce classical music to kids

The brain processes the sound, separates the melody from the rhythm and then puts it back together - what a powerful sensory experience! Let’s take a look at all the ways classical music keeps little ones entertained while nurturing their growing minds…

Builds super-power listening skills

Places, please! Take a musical tour through nature with the great composer himself, Beethoven. This Tonie is full of birdsong, murmuring brooks and even rumbling thunderstorms. All of the orchestral instruments create lots of different audio textures and sounds and as kids listen to the changing tempos, their listening skills become more and more tuned in. This can also help to increase their concentration skills too.

Improves their memory 

Listening to classical music has been proven to increase brain wave activity, and this is directly connected to their memory. When kids focus on the details, patterns and structure of the music, like in our Favourite Masterpieces Tonies, it excites different portions of their brain simultaneously. This can help to develop their speech, reading, writing and recall as they grow.

Encourages imagination

Immersing them in music without any words creates a different listening experience that can inspire new thoughts and creativity. With no words to direct a narrative, little dreamers have the space to create their own story.

It’s calming and helps them sleep better

Amy’s favourite Tonie is Matilda. From a very young age, she was utterly obsessed with Matilda. She watched and read it so many times that she practically had the whole script memorised. As she grew older, she remained just like Matilda, a bookworm, a trickster, and a dreamer!
