Article A:
THE MOZART EFFECT: HOW MUSIC MAKES YOU SMARTER
Have you ever noticed how your favorite music can make you feel better? Well, new researchstudies now show how music can make you smarter too!Scientists at Stanford University, in California, have recently revealed a molecular basis for the“Mozart Effect”, but not other music. Dr. Rauscher and her colleague H. Li, a geneticist, havediscovered that rats, like humans, perform better on learning and memory tests after listening toa specific Mozart’s Sonata.Recently, a new book called The Mozard Effect by Don Campbell,has condensed the world’s research on all the beneficial effects of certain types of music.Some of the hundreds of benefits are:
Improves test scores
Cuts learning time
Calms hyperactive children and adults
Reduces errors
Improves creativity and clarity
Heals the body faster 
Integrates both sides of the brain for more efficient learning
Raises IQ scores 9 points (research done at University of California, Irvine)In 1996, the College Entrance Exam Board Service conducted a study on all students takingtheir SAT exams. Students who sang or played a musical instrument scored 51 points higher on the verbal portion of the test and an average of 39 points higher on math.Major corporations such as Shell, IBM, and Dupont, along with hundreds of schools anduniversities use music, such as certain Baroque pieces, to cut learning time in half and increaseretention of the new materials.In my teacher and parent training seminars, I have been using music for years as a strategy toreduce learning time and increase students’ memory of the material. Music activates the wholebrain and makes you feel more energetic.Listen to these tapes when you study, work or drive in the car to receive the tremendousbenefits. This is the music of such composers as Mozart, Vivaldi, Pachabel, Handel and Bach.I use these tapes every day and found them to be extraordinarily effective.Each CD or tape has specially selected music to enhance learning, spatial intelligence,creativity and body awareness.
