The listening to classical music spilled over into Superlearning and Accelerated Learning.

Superlearning and Accelerated Learning were two
It was mainly used for learning
foreign languages, and I havenít heard about it for years now, but
the Mozart and Baroque music is still being played.
I think the problem with these systems is people have trouble believing some of the claims and donít even try them out. I used Baroque music, 60 beats a minute, when I was trying to learn a foreign language, but I donít know if it made a difference.
Learning a language is like learning to read.
It takes time and more time and lots of
persistence. There are so many setbacks. You have to have fixed, reachable
goals that you stick to even when it goes in one ear and out the other. If
your persistence dies so does the language, and it doesnít matter how
much Baroque music or Mozart music you listen to.
I think having some music, preferable Mozart, on in the background could
be a good idea as it breaks up the silence when the child is trying to say
the words. And we never know it might make a difference, but if the child
doesnít want any music switch it off.
