Music For Your Infant

Label: ABC Classics Cat. No.: 481 0545 Medium: CD No. Discs: 2

Following the success of ABC Classics' popular ABC For Life series, which has featured the titles Music for the Mind, Music to Study By, Music to Sleep By and Music to Energise, comes the latest addition Music for Your Infant.

Beethoven said that 'music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents.' Unwittingly, he was foreshadowing the great strides in knowledge about music and the brain which have come from contemporary neuroscience and other disciplines.

For example, research tells us that a child's relationship with music begins before birth and is hard-wired in the womb, with the particular musicality of the mother's voice creating a powerful bond which scientists think is a survival strategy carried through evolution. We also know that music can help young children acquire language and numeracy skills: just think of the way in which most of us learned the alphabet in song, or our times tables to a rhythmic pattern. As the teen years hit, research shows that young people's relationship with music is as important to them as their relationship with friends, and their listening choices give them a powerful way to assert their sense of identity at this time. So, as we develop through childhood, navigate adolescence and continue through our lives, music is right there with us, marking milestones and setting moods for all occasions.

Music is an opportunity to actively connect with your child: things like smiles, laughter, touch, and playful, happy interaction can be as important to an infant's development as food or sleep. This album provides plenty of opportunities to dance together, march, clap each other's hands, beat time on your knees, listen for musical phrases you can sing, say out loud the names of instruments you can hear, and talk about how the music makes you feel.

There is also over an hour of soothing music carefully selected to calm young children and reduce the stress levels of their carers: perfect for bath time or during feeding, as a musical cue for nap-time and as an opportunity for gentle swaying with your child in your arms, soft humming, or as a backdrop to massage.

Because our nervous systems are tuned for it, humans have a particular sensitivity to music. We know that sounds are more potent stimuli than sights in most people, as auditory receptors cover a larger region of the brain. So, it is clear that music isn’t just the food of love. It's brain food, too.
