Classical Music for IQ and Health

They say, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." I'm sure the same is true for "Jill". So this weekend I'm doing no work. I'm just relaxing with classical music, the rustle of the wind in the trees and the chirping of birds. That's my "do-it-yourself" play project for the weekend!

And if the "Mozart Effect" - you get smarter by listening to classical music - is true, then my IQ's sure to improve.

Besides the fact that I don't want to become "a dull girl", I am taking the time to improve my overall health and general well-being by listening to some of the best, most popular age old and modern classical music.

I'm not selfish about it though. I'll share with you some of the health benefits of listening to classical music and introduce you to some old as well as modern classical talent.

The Healing Properties of Classical Music

Did you know that listening to classical music can improve your overall health and well-being?

In December 2007, a German-born surgeon – Dr. Claudius Conrad – co-published a research article in the Critical Care Medicine Journal titled, “Overture for growth hormone: Requiem for interleukin-6?” This research article revealed the results of a study he conducted on ten (10) patients in intensive care following their respective surgeries.

Half of the patients were given Mozart’s piano sonatas to listen to as background music and the other half heard no music at all.

The study revealed that the patients who listened to the classical music experienced reduced blood pressure and heart rates, required less pain medication and healed faster.

Classical Music for Young and Old

Classical music is also being used in intensive care units for premature and new-born babies at some hospitals.

According to the Daily Mail Reporter (May 22, 2011), the maternity ward at the Kosice-Saca hospital in Slovakia uses classical music and nature sounds, 5 to 6 times a day to comfort new-born babies that are separated from their mothers for treatment.

The hospital also uses this same music therapy for premature babies since, according to Dr. Slavka Viragová who founded this music project at the hospital, the music helps a baby to gain weight, recall the mother when she is not with them, gets rid of stress, allows the baby to handle pain better, stabilizes his/her breathing and maintains a proper heartbeat.

Research has also shown that classical music calms Dementia and Alzheimer's patients.

According to Kim Warchol - a well renowned registered and licensed Occupational Therapist who has done extensive work with Dementia and Alzheimers patients and "educated over 5,000 health care professionals on approaches to dementia evaluation, treatment, and programming" - use of music when dealing with Alzheimer's and Dementia patients can:

- Enhance their quality of life and wellness

- Reduce their stress and anxiety levels

- Enhance their memories and recall abilities

- Improve their communication skills

- Help them to better express their feelings

- Assist with their physical rehabilitation

How to Capture the Health Benefits from Classical Music

Numerous studies have shown that classical music can help improve your everyday health in several ways, as follows:

1. Classical music reduces stress and anxiety and induces sleep: It has a soothing effect which lowers one's blood pressure and heart rate and calms the mind.

2. Classical music stimulates your brain cells: The most quoted research study is the "Mozart Effect" which purports that listening to classical music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - the renowned 18th century classical composer - improves performance of certain kinds of mental tasks and is also beneficial in early childhood for a child's mental development.

3. Classical music improves exercise benefits: Listening to music while exercising or working out causes you to expend greater energy while doing exercise or workout routines resulting in more effective workouts.

So the next time you're feeling stressed, depressed, can't sleep well, need "out of the box" ideas for your office project/ presentation, need to get rid of nerves before an exam, interview, or presentation or maybe you just need some motivation to do your exercise routine - PUT ON SOME CLASSICAL MUSIC!

It's sure to give you your desired effect and have you performing at your best or sleeping like a baby or a log (whichever sleeps sounder :)

Andrea Bocelli in Concert at Central Park
Andrea Bocelli in Concert at Central Park

Andrea Bocelli and His Music Career

Born in Pisa, Italy on September 22, 1958, Andrea Bocelli started studying the piano from the age of 6 with his parents prodding.

He describes himself as "a modern but old fashioned tenor" but for Celine Dion, "if God could sing, He would sound a lot like Andrea Bocelli."

In 1970, he performed 'O sole mio' in a singing competition that introduced his talent to the world. He made his debut in the United States in October 1999 at Massenet's Werther. Some of his noted accomplishments include:

  1. His enormously successful 2002 recording project "Sentimento" - a collection of romantic pieces by composers such as Tosti, Denza and Gastaldon - produced in collaboration with Lorin Maazel, and which earned him a double nomination at the 2003 "Classical Brit Awards", where he won both "Album of the Year" and "Best Selling Classical Album of the Year".
  2. A CD and DVD - "Concerto: One Night in Central Park" - which has been distributed in over 70 different countries and which he recorded live during an extraordinary concert held on the "Great Lawn" in Central Park, New York on September 15 2011, where he sang with renowned singers such as Celine Dion and Tony Bennett, and received accompaniment by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.

I was introduced to Andrea Bocelli's music while living in Venezuela in 1997 and I bought his 1997 album "Romanza" and fell in love with the sweetness of his voice.

The Best of Andrea Bocelli !

      I like to listen to classical music too. I think it does not have to be the "real, old classical music".

      I dont know what year this music is from, but due to its chill piano sounds its timeless anyway.

      It's a really good one! I just think Chopin's Nocturne op9 n2 and Beethoven's Moonlight sonata should be more indirectly exposed as a necessary pieces of the relaxing classical music collection or playlist. That's why I dedicated my two lenses to those concrete pieces.Anyhow, great job, keep on!

      I love instrumental (classical) music - it's relaxing and is great to have playing in the background while working or studying.

      Instrumental music is pure feeling and it is either exhilarating or calming for me, depending on the piece.

      Growing up I usually rolled my eyes and called it elevator music (that's about all my parents listened to besides Scott Joplin ;o) I actually love classical music, and my Antonio Vivaldi CD is my number one "go to" when I'm having a stressed-out day *grin*. Very nice lens, and Shuan Lee (is that right?) was utterly amazing. Congratulations on your purple star!

      This lens is awesome! Deserving of the Purple Star. Shared a link to this lens at my lens about feng shui and also shared this via Pinterest to my Movies and Music board. Really good stuff here!
