5.0 out of 5 stars Baby Mozart Music Festival, 18 Jun 2003
This review is from: Baby Mozart - Music Festival [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Having played a Mozart CD to Maddie since she was a 16 week old foetus there was a fair chance that she was going to enjoy this video. Now 10 months old, she claps her hands in anticipation and sways to the music, topping off with a rather endearing bum shuffle when more familiar 'tunes' appear.
The video is colourful with a variety of stimuli such as puppets, wind chimes, puzzles and clockwork toys, all repeated at intervals to promote recognition. There are also some suprises - a Lizard that sticks its tongue out and says 'blah' is a firm favourite and well copied.( Though on second thoughts it might be nice to hear my daughter attempting 'mama' for a change!)
The edited UK version loses the after show spiel about 'the Mozart effect' (found on the American VHS) This is unfortunate as it describes how children exposed to Mozart's music show a significant improvement in spatial-temporal reasoning. So perhaps a leaflet in the UK cassette may resolve this?
Finally on another level, I've used the video in my therapeutic work with abused and traumatised children, some of whom have significantly 'calmed' and displayed less challenging behaviour.
