Benefits of Music for Babies

Why do we care what the best music for babies is? Because, music can:

  • Enhance mood (Bye, bye fussy baby?): Classical music is anecdotally connected to reduced stress levels, but studies show that this is true—even during medical procedures.
  • Boost memory: Studies show that students who listen to classical music score better on tests. And guess what? This applies to babies learning about the world, too. (source, source) Music training helps improve brain function by creating more connections within the brain. (source)
  • Lower blood pressure: Classical music for babies can even lower blood pressure and relieve pain! (Is baby teething? Pop on Mozart!) (Source)
  • Improve language skills: When baby listens to music, they picks up on the “rhythm, timbral contracts, and melodic contour,” which later help them focus on the syntax and semantics of the language. (source) Basically, music helps baby dissect how language is put together.
  • Improve sleep quality: Classical music can help boost the quality of sleep baby gets. (source) Playing music also masks “house noises” that can disturb a sleeping baby. White noise machines do the same thing, but classical music is a great alternative if you’re traveling.
