About this title


Did you know that music has the power to increase your child's intelligence? Recent scientific studies at some of the most respected universities in the world indicate that children introduced to classical music at a young age read earlier and perform better on achievement tests. Inside, respected educator Sharlene Habermeyer gives you a simple, step-by-step program that any parent can follow. You'll discover how introducing children to good music can:
· Accelerate language development
· Improve math and science skills
· Enhance physical education
· Strengthen memory and reading retention
· Benefit children with learning disabilities
· And more!
"This book outlines why music is important to learning, and provides parents with excellent suggestions for launching and sustaining a musical influence in the lives of their children."
James S. Catterall, professor of education and co-director of Imagination Project at UCLA
"A great resource for both parents and teachers. Anyone interested in music or the overall well-being of children will not be able to put this book down."
Lisha Papert Lercari, director of Music and the Brain


You've probably heard all the fuss about how classical music can aid a child's developmental growth. Now here's a book that actually puts the educational research into practice, by showing how classical music can become a continual part of your child's learning experiences. Good Music, Brighter Children skates over the more controversial research and suggests easy methods to increase musical experiences. Mainly through statistics and anecdotes, the author gives a multitude of reasons why classical music can help brain development and achievement levels in nearly every field of study. More importantly, the book supplies numerous ways of creating interest in music beyond costly lessons and concerts. Children can learn the stories behind operas, for example, or study the history of instruments and the emotional content of the music. The author, Sharlene Habermeyer, includes activities designed to fully involve the students. You'll find yourself actually making reproductions of instruments, reading books detailing the lives of composers, and maybe even writing a libretto or two! For parents new to the realm of classical music, there's an enormous resource list of classical pieces broken down by age appropriateness, composer, and subject matter. The author encourages families to financially support their local classical musicians, and she offers plenty of tips for encouraging the governmental support through grassroots letter writing. Her suggestions could actually lead to a great civics project for homeschoolers. While not likely to win over skeptics, this is an excellent practical manual for incorporating classical music into everyday family life. --Jill Lightner
