Music for Babies: Playful Baby (CD)
ABT’s “Music for Babies” helps infants and toddlers achieve their extraordinary, and unique, potential. This is a music CD not a video. There are a series of 4 “Music for Babies” CDs. They give children an early start in their life’s journey. It nurtures a universal wish for health for all children by giving them a melody of calm and relaxed alertness which resonates throughout the body, mind and soul.
Created in collaboration with the National Academy for Child Development (NACD), the series is based on the latest discoveries regarding brain development in very young children. Every selection is specially arranged to benefit young minds; they feature harp, celeste, violin, viola, cello, clarinet, and flute. The series includes classical and traditional folk music, as well as instrumental versions of well known lullabies and nursery rhymes. These richly resonant acoustic recordings are masterfully played by the award-winning musicians of The Arcangelos Chamber Ensemble
Take a very upbeat tune to your child’s favorite songs, add cute little noises, and children laughing, and you will get “Playful Baby.” This CD is perfect for your baby to listen to during playtime. It introduces your child to the wonders and mind expanding abilities of classical music while keeping him/ her interested. I like all four CDs in this series. While I’m not really a classical music type person, these CDs are really quite good. Perfect for babies and little children.
