I was at the airport the other day waiting for my flight to leave when I engaged in a conversation with a retired teacher. I love to meet new people and find out about them. She was telling me how she would love to play Mozart in the morning to her students. She said that it created such a peaceful mood in her class. Classical music has proven to relax and create a profound learning effect on the minds of children. So why isn’t it played in every school? What if each day students walked into their classroom listening to classical music? Can this change the brain waves of the children?
Children as well as adults learn when we are in an environment of feeling safe and nurtured. The prefrontal cortex of the brain is receptive to creating new ideas and willing to open up and share. When we feel threatened and fearful, the brain shuts down and we go into into a fight or flight protective mode. So which environment do you want your children exposed to? Teachers having guns or playing Mozart in the morning?
Raising happy, healthy smart and and peaceful children is the result of proven science. Creating an environment that promotes this is just implementing it. Let’s play Mozart rather than arm the teachers with guns.
Here is some Mozart to start your day!
