Auditory Stimulation Enhances Child Brain Functions

According to experts, some types of auditory stimulation can be beneficial for learning while other types can be detrimental. I'll discuss both in this post.

Auditory Stimulation Using Classical Music Can Help Children Study

Research shows that playing a Largo cadence, such as experienced in Baroque music, is highly beneficial for study. This is because the beats per minute (BPM) of Largo is the same as the alpha brain wave state. The alpha state is the most receptive, alert state of mind we can be in, which is ideal for learning. Other classical music, such as the waltz, reportedly have a BPM that's in harmony the natural rhythm of our body. The waltz helps raise our energies and consciousness upward into positive states of mind, which is also helpful for learning.
