From the so called 'Mozart Effect' to recent studies in the USA and Europe, it is very clear that carefully selected & arranged, well performed classical music accelerates the learning process in babies and infants. Music is language to babies. It communicates feelings and has a positive influence on the emotional life of the listener. However, it is not just a matter of selecting a classical recording and playing it to your child. Some arrangements and musical treatments can be harsh and quite frightening to small sensitive ears. Dramatics and tempos need to be carefully scrutinised. Music communicates feelings and emotions and influences moods. Music is talking and singing and communicating, it must sing with beautifully shaped phrases and harmonies. Having carefully chosen, arranged and recorded the music for our programs, visual images were music matched to complete the experience. Numerous 'pilot' programs were shown to infants & toddlers, their parents, grand parents and various interested parties. Fine tuning proved to be a continuous process. These three programs each run for approximately 25 minutes. Subtle visual and/or musical changes add to the child's interest. Repetition plays an important role in the learning experience and in the baby's musical memory. The result is the music of some of the greatest melody writers the world has ever known, set to visual images that please and interest the very young.
