We've all heard of the "Mozart Effect": the theory that children who listen to music at early ages somehow become smarter. Recent studies describe music as a "pre-language" that improves the function of the brain cortex
While the intellectualizing power of music is still controversial, there is no doubt that music enriches life. Listening to music fills life with joy, connected with beauty and spirit. So be sure to play a wide variety of music, sing a lot, and dance with your children. Teach them to value music. You'll be creating powerful memories for them.
