We had just bought our hifi (stereo) and to christen the hifi we bought two CD’s the first ever. One CD was – Gheorghe Zamfir pan flute music, I won’t mention the other one cause you’ll just laugh at our choice of music!
When I fell pregnant I knew that playing classical music was important for the baby but I didn’t have a huge collection to choose from at that time. So pan flutes was a regular…I used to come home after work and lie on the floor in the lounge with the headphones on my tummy and I played pan flute music for the boys. I did this every day during both pregnancies. This song was one of my favorites from this CD.
The other day I told my boys I was working on a project, and asked them to answer these questions based on this piece of music. Just out of curiosity.
These are their replies –
Does this music mean anything to you?
No ♦ Not really
Does it calm or irritate you?
Calm ♦ It’s calming
Do you like it?
Yes ♦ I could study to this music
Is it familiar?
Yes ♦ I think I’ve heard it before
They were at nursery school age when I found Beethoven and Mozart for babies, this would play in the background in their bedroom when they played and I’m quite sure that this helped in creating little geniuses. I’m happy with my music experiment results and the answers I got from them. They both actually like classical music and have developed their own taste in music, it varies but they always play classical when they are studying or want to calm down and go to sleep. Effects of music just fascinate me because I listen to very different things at different times, it helps me cope and live ♥
