Classical Music and Learning…..

I just read an interesting article on classical music and learning I had to share with you. Enjoy!

Dr. Georgi Lozanov was one of the first people to discover that music has a measurable effect on the brain, on a deep emotional level. He figured out specific STYLES of music can actually make your brain MORE receptive to learning.

Here’s the kicker: Lozanov ALSO discovered you can’t simply turn on ANY classical music to get the effect.

The MEMORY CONSOLIDATION phase is when you’re reviewing material you’ve just learned — And want to RETAIN that information in your brain. During this stage, you want to study to what’s known as a Passive Concert — a melodic, baroque piece of classical music – which helps CONSOLIDATE the information into your long-term memory.

Rocket Memory, Dr. Georgi Lozaov
