sounds. The sounds of the outside world during this period he hears very
muffled, but my mother’s voice, heartbeat, murmur of blood flow
accompany him constantly. These sounds are woven for the baby in
a real melody that gives him peace and feeling
security. From that moment on, sounds begin to play great
role in the life of the child, and this influence does not recede until the end of life.
Sounds are especially important for mental and even physical development.

Music from birth

After birth, music begins to play an even more important role in
the life of a child. On a newborn baby music acts approximately
just as it did before birth: it sets its emotional background.
During active wakefulness, you can turn on cheerful dynamic
songs, before bedtime or while screaming and whims – quiet

    music, but classical music must
    be included in the program. They are a kind of benchmark for sound.
    and musical taste, universal for people of any age, gender
    and social status. In this regard, parents can not worry
    that classical music is too complicated for a child:
    it is also “classic” to be enjoyed by any listener.
