Music is a powerful regulator of our emotions. Music makes us feel, in a controllable and safe way. It allows us to experience feelings and the power to evoke incredible emotion and anchor us back to former place and time. Out of all of the five senses sound is undoubtedly one of the most powerful.

Countless studies have proved the power of playing positive music to children.

Music opens up and expands the mind allowing us to see and feel things differently. It also relaxes our brains allowing us to learn and retain information better.

In the 1990s research was conducted and showed that children’s exposure to music from early childhood and onwards helps them to speak more clearly, develop a larger vocabulary, and strengthen social and emotional skills.

Music has the ability to strengthen the connection between the brain and the body to work together as a team. For instance, when dancing and moving to music, children develop stronger motor skills whereas singing along to a song helps them to practise their singing voice. In general, the exposure to music supports children in their development process to learn the sound of tones and words.

Looking at the benefits from another perspective in 1994 Masaru Emoto, a Japanese author, researcher, photographer and entrepreneur conducted a study of the correlation of human consciousness and the molecular structure of water.

The average adult human body is 50-65% water, averaging around 57-60%. The percentage of water in infants is much higher, typically around 75-78% water, dropping to 65% by one year of age.

Knowing this it was astonishing to discover that he always observed each molecular structure of water as beautiful crystals after giving positive words, playing good music, and showing, playing, or offering pure prayer to water.
