    there is no scientific study to prove it but it helps you and your baby to relax. Any kind of music and not just classical music activates the brain of your child and active brains increases the potential of being smart.

    I'm not aware if there is an effect in babies, but definitely classics makes people be more intelligent.

    I honestly don't know how an infant can learn algebra and paricle physics from listening to Mozart. Maybe it just calms them and lets them learn of their surroundings better, who knows. That's what happens with me anyway, but I don't learn how to build a Ferrari or split an atom safely.

    No, music in general develops children's mental capabilities, whether it's classical, rock or heavy metal.

    In fact, music with lyrics do excite the brain more than instrumental music. Since it delivers the child not only a melody to listen but also some words to think.

    Also, and if you make a little google research you'll easily find it, years ago there was a study in which statistically heavy metal fans where the brightest students among UK's college/university population.

    I've been trying to find a baby that could answer this question, and still haven't.  I'm gonna go ahead and say no.

    Classical music won't actually make a person smarter-- we all get what God gave us, and nothing more I'm afraid.  However, the technical aspect of classical music (especially from the Baroque and Classical era) is mathematically based as well as having a strong creative element that tends to stimulate brain activity/development.  So while it might not make a baby, or anyone for that matter, actually smarter it does make you look smarter.  And we all know what a great thing that is!
