The Right Music Can Make Children Smart

Updated on December 4, 2009

Music is part of our life. Sometimes our life surrounded by music. Not only for teenager, adult or older people like music. Children also like the music. My hobby is singing and playing guitar or keyboard instrument is my hobby. I get a lot of benefit by doing this hobby. Music can relieve stress. It make me happy when I was sad. It give me inspiration while doing my work. I get a lot of idea trough music. Music can break the ice in a community, when we gather with our friend we can sing together. We can memorize the old time. Music can bring a romantic in relationship. I would not be enough to write so many benefits of music for our lives.

Now I'll talk about the benefit of music for children. We can create a smart children from music. Many research proof that gentle, affectionate, creative, and willing, believed to be formed early on. How it could happen to our children.There is a simple way which is provide stimulation and balanced nutrition for Infants while still in the womb. One of the effective stimulation to give the positive attitude is let out the right music to children.

There was a research that it proof in the plant. There are two plant that grown in pots. These plant were exposed to different types of music. The result is the plants were given a classical music had a healthy leaves with green color. Meanwhile, another plants were given rock music, growing with green yellowish leaves

A lot of music types can stimulated the children. In Singapore and China, children equipped with various types of music ranging from traditional music to pop music. Their intelligence to receive somethings better than children who don't have to know about the music.

We have to select the right music for our child. The calm music or classical music is going to form gentle and compassionate character. The music types like Haydn, WA Mozart, Handel, Vivaldi, Leroy Anderson, and Debussy can be the best choice of parents for their child.

The musical skill is not only create the child become musician. But it also benefit to respond many things quickly, more accurately, and his thinking is not easy tension (stress). Today the world-famous bureaucrats have a music background. Why it could happen, Because during the pregnancy, the parents listening to music regularly, included music lessons or join music organizations while in college.

Mother has an important role in the children growth process and the establishment the optimal of child intelligence. Child's ability in playing music can be stimulated and it can be done every day at home. Parents and children can sing together, so the child can recognize the tone, practice expression through song, let the children play a variety of household tools to create tones and rhythms. It looks fun and we can do this in our comfort home.

      My husband and I love classical music. It is true that even corn grows faster if classical music is piped into the fields. Perhaps the world would be more peaceful if classical music was being played more often. Wouldn't that be nice! Voted up and useful.

      I agree that introducing children to classical and calming music at young ages helps develop their brains, creating more intelligent children.

      I love the photos of the babies listening to music through head phones. Their facial expressions are so prescious. Thanks for sharing.

      YES YES YES, classical music is always played softly in our home and always has been. I listened to it when I was pregnant, Mozart is my favorite. Music does make a big difference. Both of my kids are smart and very bright! They still enjoy classical music turning it on themselves every morning when they wake. They both take all honors classes and test 100%! They enjoy playing many instruments as well. Great Hub! Love and Peace :)

      This was a very interesting.I believe, like many others, in the strong effect music can have on children.I have been an infant teacher for many years and have witnessed the'magical effect' music can have on the little ones. It really should be researched more and become a greater part of infant education. Thanks for the writing.

      Hey there prasetio30! Great hub and really important! I have been playing all sorts of classical music for my kids along with the Beatles and The Beach Boys. Now they both have fantastic taste in music and really love to listen to new styles now that they are a bit older. I started out with the music before they were born. I actually put together a compilation of songs for both their births in the hospital.

      Thanks for a very good hub! Best, G

      I give my big appreciation to motricio, Veronica, articleposter, Mr.Roychoudhury, Chin Chin and ainehannah. I can't reply all of you one by one. But I think we all have the same perception about music have influence in brain development of children. Like Chin Chin said with the music the children more easily to memorize.

      Music can truly make children smarter. I observed from my children that they are able to memorize things more easily when done through songs. Makes them more light-hearted too. Nice sharing.

      I am a staunch beleiver in the power of music on the brain of children. Even while I was pregnant with my children I immersed myself (and them) in the classical arts (Mozart is my favorite); still now I try to set aside time just to listen to the classical arts - both my children and I. Thanks for such a great reminder of just how powerful music is.

      prasetio30 this is awesome!

      Yes it is true, music has an outstanding influence over all existing things and living organisms.

      One example for things:

      A bridge: Anger's Bridge collapsed because soldiers where marching on a bridge, which natural frequency was equal to a marching soldier's rhythm (

      For living organisms: Listen to this song a let me know what you felt

      All things has a natural frequency (, music is just what can show us which one is. =)
