Benefits of Classical Music for Special Needs Children

For years, we’ve known that listening to music has benefits for children’s development. CD series like those from Baby Einstein have become extremely popular with parents of babies because experts have recognized that listening to classical music is not only engaging to very young children but actually increases their brain’s ability to perform spatial reasoning.

When a baby is born, he has billions of brain cells. As the baby develops, those brain cells form connections with other brain cells. When babies listen to music, especially classical music, they make strong music related connections in the brain. Over time, continued listening to classical music actually changes the way the child’s mind works by creating brain pathways that would not have been there otherwise. Listening to music does not increase IQ, per se, but can make the mind perform many important tasks more easily and with greater skill.

Listening to music has been shown to prime our brains for spatial tasks, like putting together puzzles. Even adults who did not listen to music regularly as a child can experience a short-term burst in spatial capabilities after listening to music.

Why Classical Music?

Classical music has been shown to have the most impact on creating brain connections in children because of the complexity of the music. Classical music has a very complex musical structure. Studies have shown that babies as young as three months old can detect the special structures in works such as those of Mozart, Beethoven and Bach, and can recognize music they’ve heard before.

It is this complexity that leads researchers to believe that classical music is the best music for building these pathways in the brain. However, all music is good for the brain. Research has also shown that children who have early and frequent exposure to music are better at math, emphasizing the relationship between pathways built by listening to music and the brain’s function.

Special Benefits to Children with Special Needs

We’re fully aware of music’s benefits to all children. But, researchers are becoming more and more aware of potential additional benefits to children with learning disorders like Down’s syndrome, Autism and other learning disabilities.

Children with Autism

Autism is a neurological disorder that affects socialization and communication. It is a spectrum disorder that affects roughly 0.6 percent of the population, occurring four times more often in males.

There has long been a connection between autism and music. Autistic children, though deficient in language, are generally able to process music as well as children their age who do not suffer from a learning disability. This often makes music of special interest to autistic children, and there have been many case studies regarding autistic children who are musical savants.

In very practical terms, many parents of autistic children have found that listening to classical music can calm and soothe their children during bouts of acting out. Like repetitive motions, such as swinging and rocking, music can sometimes also be used to prevent outbursts by helping children to calm in advance of a potentially stressful situation. Classical music has been shown to actually calm the nervous system.

Children with Down Syndrome

One of the most important therapies for Down syndrome children is auditory therapy. Down syndrome children have great difficulty in auditory vocal processing. They have trouble learning to coordinate the movements of the lips and tongue that are required for speech. In addition, they are highly prone to ear infections, which often lead to hearing loss. When children suffer hearing loss, it further impacts their ability to speak.

Music is a key element of the auditory therapy needed by Down syndrome children. Most music therapists use classical music in auditory therapy because of how it stimulates the brain and calms the nervous system at the same time. In addition to how classical music can help improve cognitive function, it helps improve auditory function, which is of special concern to these children. Children with Down syndrome can actually improve their ability to respond to the full range of sound frequencies through sound therapy using classical music.

Other Learning Disabilities

There are studies to indicate that classical music provides benefit to all children because of its ability to create pathways in the brain, stimulate the brain and calm the nervous system. These features are particularly important to children with any sort of learning disability. Improved ability to focus, concentrate and remain calm are positive affects for children with hyperactivity disorders, Asperger’s syndrome and ADD. In addition, the stimulation of the brain and creation of new pathways may help these children to improve their ability to perform certain tasks, especially spatially related tasks.

Music holds a special place in the lives of many people. Most of us have specific songs that trigger responses and memories each time we hear them. So, it’s no surprise that music has a profound effect on our minds. We also now know that these effects can be used to improve our minds and our cognitive abilities, especially in children with learning disabilities.

5 Main Types Of Guitars

The Classical Guitar (Spanish guitar) is an instrument commonly used for performing "classical" music and its origin is from Spain. The guitar is made of soft wood with a big, hollow sound-box with a form reminiscent of the female body, which is probably why so many male guitarists give their guitars female aliases. The guitar's long fret-board is made of pure wood, and the machined head is made to facilitate very fine tuning. Originally, the Spanish guitar was strung with pig's gut strings thatave a sweet, gentle, slightly muted sound. The classic guitar is made for any melodic pieces but particularly fitted to old fashioned classic music.

The Flamenco Guitar is very similar to the classical guitar: Main difference between this and a classical guitar is that the fretboard of the Flamenco guitar is even wider and longer

The Acoustic Guitar is also very similar in comparison to the Spanish guitar. The main differences are that its fretboard is smaller and built with more endurance to cope with greater tension, the sound-box is sometimes slightly bigger and the strings

are made of steel or hard nylon. The sound the Acoustic guitar makes is smaller and more "crisp". This is very popular with old musicians on both sides of the Atlantic, who have no trouble playing complex finger-picking styles the guitars. You might be wanting to get this guitar if you are interested in playing rhythms, doing a lot of heavy strums, and are taking your first steps in rock, like using a variety of tunings or if you want to play smooth jazz and blues rock.

Electric guitars need to be plugged into an electric amplifier for any sound to be heard. Electric guitars are usually completely solid and can be extremely heavy. When you are playing this type of guitar wear a comfortable shoulder strap. Most electric guitars have a thin, hollow sound-box in which the electric gadgetry is concealed. Electric guitars are usually more lightweight, and can make a variety of sounds from "classical" through to a Stratocaster. This type off guitar is used for rock, pop concerts and playing in venues where loud amplification is needed.

The bass (guitar) usually carries less than 4 strings and often comes with a no fret neck. The intonation of the bass guitar is similar as for the bottom four strings of a electric guitar but down one octave, and its strings are there before made to be thicker and heavier. The bass is mainly used for laying down thick beefy sounds and usually used for keeping the rhythm and accompaniment the drums. In the majority of rock bands the bassist rather than the drummer holds the band's rhythm together.

Jazz Rap – The Exceptional Hip Hop Rap Sub-Genre

The blend of the 'yesterday-style' with the 'today-trends' is called Jazz. Jazz-rap is hence, a fusion of the early hip hop African-American music and the present-day prominent musical formats.

The word 'Jazz', which was earlier also written as "Jass", was first reportedly used for music in Chicago, in 1915. This musical style originated in the early 20th century as a confluence of African-American tradition and the European musical traditions . The form has always evolved and incorporated the 'present'. Jazz rap is specifically a hip-hop sub-genre which has evolved through the late 1980s and early 1990s. The music is influenced by hip-hop rap beats while the lyrics are sung out in a rap-style. The distinguishing factor here is the type of content in this sub-genre and the musical instruments used.

The lyrics are often Afro-centric; laying emphasis on the importance of African people. They themes also follow political consciousness, historical awareness, intellectual thoughts, conscious rap and the general positivity. One can understand, since, why this genre is not a popular choice or a favorite among many. It talks of reality and the reality that affects all of us. People choose to turn a blind eye to the "ill" of our society because it is a simpler path to take. Jazz-rap on the other hand, makes the bold attempt to lurch forward and uplift the set-up in which we live. One of the most renamed South African groups which laid the foundation for this kind of rapping and influenced hip hop music was the "Last poets".

They emerged from the Black Nationalist thread of the civil rights moments in the late 1960s and went on to make music which understood social commitment. Among other artists and groups who played a poignant role in the emergence of the genre is Louis Amstrong with his 1925 rap song – "Heebie Jeebies", Gill Scott-Heron, and the Watts Prophets. They initiated the use of jazzy tracks. Following the innovative trends, came the band "Cargo" with the single "Jazz Rap" from the album with the same title; and then went down as the first recorded jazz-rap-single. The genre had arrived.

Talking about the instruments, the musical style is distinguished by the use of the trumpet, trombone, clarinet, piano, electric-guitar, electric-bass, drums and turntables. These are a few common instruments basically used for the typical jazz-instrumentation.

The jazzy auditory themes are the real flavor of the music. The lyrics and the rhythm make this form stand a part. For a music lover, with an intellectual aptitude and a hunger for good music this is where we stop.
