Very helpful Oct 20, 2006
This was a helpful book. I appreciated the real examples of how to incorporate music into my child's life.
Nurturing through Music Jul 5, 2006
This book introduces a wonderful way to spend more time nurturing your child through musical activities. I was a little skeptical about the effects it would have, but found that even simple ryhmes can calm my children down. It is not a "fast food" approach. It is about using music and singing to motivate and comfort your child. We sing and ryhme all day- from diaper changes to car trips.
As an educator I find the ideas in this book to be a great way for every parent to prepare their child for school. It may not make your child more "intelligent", but I believe the author is correct in saying that your child with be a better learner.
More feel-good fantasies... Nov 30, 2002
No matter how many experiments are made that disproof the Mozart Effect there will always be parents who want a fast easy way of controlling or making their kids more "intelligent". Someday someone is going to market a sugar pill to do that, and make millions.
It's the fast-food approach to life. And you as a parent are going to lose for it.
The old fashion way, giving of your time and caring by sharing and personnaly teaching is no longer in vogue.
This book Sings ! Oct 12, 2000
This book will make me a smarter parent. I am amazed at how this book blends the practical, the scientific and the artistic into common sense. I am not a fan of Classical music, but this book has helped me understand more about the healthy qualities of music.
Mr. Campbell gives me the evidence I need to show my school district that music classes must be included in every child's schoolday. The book is well referenced and gives many ways to help children improve their minds with music. This book sings the heart, the brain and the body of music!
Parent - therapist gives a standing ovation Oct 12, 2000
This book is outstanding. As a parent and nearly a grand parent, as well as a music therapist, I welcome this clear and creative book. There is no doubt you can use the Mozart Effect in your home the way Campbell defines it. It is more than just a scientific study, it is about knowing how to nuture a child and a family with music . Campbell is neither elitest nor arrogant. He inspires and informs. All types of music are included and the book takes a step by step, age by age, approach to brain and body development. He shows us that The Mozart Effect goes back to research in France over forty years ago and continues in centers throughout the world today to help children with ADD, speech problems and dyslexia.
As a music therapist, I hope every family will use this book. It can improve listening and communication. It can inspire us to look at a much bigger picture in child development. Thanks Don Campbell for doing your homework so well.
