is it true when you play classical music ie: Bach or Beetoven when you play this music when you are preggy does it really make kids smarter? I bought some headphones to but on my belly can this accually work??
I, personally, dont feel that this is true. I did not listen to classical music. I have 2 girls, ages 11 years and 14 years. My dh is a VERY smart man (and his mom did not listen to classical music, but she and her dh are very wise people as well).....I am your average person. Both of my girls are AG students, make straight A's and are very talented in several areas..such as singing, dancing, art...my oldest even plays piano by ear, (never had a piano lesson)......I think it depends on genes, and I think it depends on how much time you spend teaching them. But if you feel that there is something to listening to classical music...do it! Who knows, maybe the baby loves it! I dont think it would hurt anything...so if you feel comfortable doing so...thats great. Good luck.
I think is more calming to the baby. And then you can play it once they have been delivered and it should calm the baby! I didn't and don't just play classical, I have several soothing cd's and play them, the only classical that I have is "Beethoven before you where born", I have a couple Enya, and music from the Andes, they are all pretty much instrumental.

I don't think it has anything to do with making a kid smarter...the music is meant to calm them and "stimulate" them after they're born. I had a chemistry teacher in high school that used to play us 15 min of classical music before tests because he said it's been proven that test scores were higher after listening to the music. The music relaxed the students and they preformed better on the test.
I've read some articles that babies prefer Vivaldi over any other classical artist. DH and I bought a cd of classical music for babies to have playing in the nursery. I've played it a few times in the car and she kicks harder at certain pieces of music. Hopefully she's kicking because she likes it and not because she hates it! *lol*
