Education - it begins in the womb and not when school starts!

Music is one of our first learning experiences and it begins in the womb, albeit often in an informal, sensory and affective way.

Very strong emotional and communication bonds are also established during pregnancy between them - mother and child feel a strong need to communicate -. Perhaps, because of that, the ear is one of the first embryonic organs to be developed, at three weeks, to represent his primary means of communication with the exterior. The foetus detects extra uterine stimulation in the twentieth week, and early in the third quarter he can discriminate and learn associations. During the third quarter, the embryo is able to recall a sound, relate the sound with the one he previously heard and interpret its meaning.

Learning begins when a physical, emotional or intellectual activity is recognised and understood, as such, and it is still in the womb that the development of the brain begins and learning starts. What the foetus experiences emotionally and cognitively will influence the cognitive and emotional responses in his future life.

We encourage you to listen to all kinds of music during and after pregnancy. This will help to stimulate the baby's senses and improve his brain development. Exposure to sounds and different events is essential to help establish new neural connections. That is how we learn. The brain of a baby is extremely plastic, which means it can constantly adapt and make new connections.

As it is well known, it is very important to have a calm pregnancy. Music has the ability to change our state of mind – listening to music during pregnancy helps to control anxiety and depression levels –. By controlling anxiety during pregnancy, the pregnant woman will also be a little more calm and prepared for childbirth.
