Music for Babies

"Music for Babies gives our children an early start in their life's journey. It nurtures a universal wish for health for all children by giving them a melody of calm and relaxed alertness which resonates throughout the body, mind and soul."
—V.L. Scaramella-Nowinski, Psy.D., Mother, Clinical & Research Pediatric Neuropsychologist

The Music for Babies series is a breakthrough for early child development. Music for Babies is built note by note on the latest discoveries related to brain development in very young children. Created through a collaboration of experts across a broad range of scientific and artistic disciplines, each volume helps children achieve their extraordinary and unique potential.

These rich and resonant acoustic recordings feature harp, violin, viola, cello, clarinet and flute masterfully played by the award-winning musicians of The Arcangelos Chamber Ensemble under the musical direction of Richard Lawrence. Each volume includes classical and traditional folk music arranged for children, and instrumental versions of well-known lullabies and nursery rhymes.

Just as food nourishes a baby's growing body, the elements of music - melody, tone and harmony - nourish a baby's rapidly developing brain. Research shows that even before children are born, music has a beneficial effect on the network of neurons that will form the foundation of their later learning, language development and musical ability.

Music for Babies fosters the brain growth crucial to healthy young minds. Created in association with NACD, each volume has been carefully crafted to provide the kind of musical nourishment that scientific study has shown will actively support optimum brain development in a child's early years.

By playing this music, you help build a strong foundation for the innate potential of your infant or toddler. Uniquely appropriate for children from birth to 36 months, Music for Babies is equally enjoyable for older listeners.
