                                                                                                                                                                                          Mozart Effect

This Mozart Effect came out of an experiment at UCLA in the 1980s sometime. 

    One class did an exam with Mozart Music in the background and another class had no music. The class with the music scored higher so the Mozart Effect was born and now we have Tapes, CDs and MP3 with different Mozart compositions to listen too.

     It was actually very popular back in the 80s and 90s but now it has worn off. I personal like to listen to Mozart music and I’ve heard some pretty extraordinary claims about what it can do, but the main problem with learning is it is very hard to test it to see if it works. 

     So I think that is why it has fallen by the wayside. I am listening to Mozart now while I typing this, mainly because I like listening to music, but I do not know if it makes my writing better. Some experts have come up with the idea that the high-pitched sounds mainly produced by the piano and the violin affect your brain. 

     Because of the high-pitched sounds your ears open up and the music stimulates your brain. And as the stimulated effect takes over your brain, you go into creative overdrive. In that state you somehow manage to learn more and retain more, and for some reason you can regurgitate what you know on an exam paper. 

     I do not know if it is true. I have been listening to Mozart music for years now, and I do not know if I am a better teacher or better learner because of it. I have never tried it in the mainstream classroom. Too much red tape so I use it myself and wonder. 

     I tried it in a weekend add-on pay class and some students asked me to switch off the music, as they couldn’t stand the old sounds. These were young kids about 10 years old I think. So I switched it off and have never tried it since. 

     For more information about learning to read courses I recommend including a Montessori course see our Teach Reading page.
