Majors for Minors – Classical Music Series
The Major for Minors, Classical Music series was developed through extensive scientific research based on the positive effects of certain classical music for children of all ages. Product was received for review purposes and this post may contain affiliate links.
Majors for Minors is designed to:
“Stimulate, strengthen, and develop your child’s brain, and help him/her develop key skills such as thinking, as well as in areas of higher learning such as math and science”
“Enhance auditory development such as the ability to listen, to learn through sound, to identify sounds and sequences of sound, to store, process and remember what they hear, to distinguish volume and pitch and to develop rhythm.”
“Facilitate the development of language, speech, and reading skills.”
“Influence mood and attention, and have a calming effect on babies and children.”
What makes Majors for Minors music special?
“At conception of out series of music, we carried out a great deal of research into understanding exactly how certain types of classical music stimulates brain development. Through understanding the process involved, we went on to develop our own “Unique Formula”, consisting of a number of “Key Ingredients” that effectively used together, produced this special series of music.”
Here is what others have to say about Majors for Minors:
“When a baby comes into the world her brain is a jumble of neurons all waiting to be woven into the intricate tapestry of the mind”
– Sharon Begley, Newsweek
“When children exercise cortical neurons by listening to classical music, they are also strengthening circuits used for mathematics and complex reasoning”
– Gordon Shaw, U.C. Irvine
The 3 CDs I reviewed from the Majors for Minors series were Classical Music Nursery Rhymes, BeeGees for Babies, and their most popular Symphony of Sleep.
These CDs are wonderful! They they are perfect for steaming through the house while children are at play, for calm, creative playtime. They are wonderful to play in the car while driving little ones around town, and the Symphony of Sleep CD is so relaxing, even I listened to it to unwind at the end of a long day, before bed.
I tested the series out in a few different settings, while babysitting a 10 month old and her 2 year old sister, they really seemed to enjoy them, they danced and played quite nicely together while the music was being played.
I also took them to work with me, I work in a special education classroom, and the same effect was noticed even with older students ages 14-20. They seemed calmer, less restless, happier.
My favorite of the 3 was Symphony of Sleep, moms, you will LOVE this CD, it is not only calming and soothing, but it is like the perfect spa music! You, for sure, will be listening to this music even when you’re not with your kiddos!
So what do I think about the Majors for Minors Series? A definite 2 thumbs up! I love this set and will listen to and share it for many years to come!
