Written by on June 18, 2018 in Art and Music, Media & Arts with 0 Comments


Have you ever heard that story that music makes kids smarter? Have you heard of the “Mozart Effect”? Do you know where all these beliefs that relate music and intelligence come from? Have you ever wondered if this statement has any scientific basis? Can Music inspire noble behaviors and infuse the little ones with compassion?

There are many circumstances or activities that can help boost intelligence in children. Music is one of them, but it is not the only one. Many studies have attempted to establish a link between learning a musical instrument and intelligence. And then? Who does not learn to play an instrument will be less intelligent?

Music certainly brings many hidden benefits to the children’s brains and their hearts. Buddhist music seems to infuse the children with a positive dharmic effect, bringing awareness and giving them perspective on the importance of the life of sentient beings, from a broader perspective.

It seems that music prepares our brains for certain types of thinking. For example, several surveys have found that after listening to classical music, adults can perform specific spatial tasks more quickly.

But why does this happen? Apparently, the “classical musical pathways” in our brain are like the ways we use for spatial reasoning. So, when we start to listen to classical music, the spaceways would already be “on” and ready to be used.

In fact, music brings many benefits to the infant’s brain as well as to the minds of adults. Many types of research have focused precisely on proving the effect that music exerts on the minds.

The Buddha’s counsel for parents is straightforward: help your children become generous, virtuous, responsible, talented, and contribute to their becoming self-sufficient adults. The most important lesson parents can convey to their children is that every action has its costs.

Each giving moment in our lives is an opportunity to practice mindfulness. Nevertheless, it is up to us to choose how we want to think, speak or act.

Buddhist Music can inspire our children as they discover and open themselves to understand the world. Our abilities to make kind and compassionate choices in our lives will eventually influence our practice on compassion, happiness, and ability to experience joy.
