Music for Babies

Just as food nourishes a baby’s growing body, the elements of music – melody, tone and harmony – nourish a baby’s rapidly developing brain. Even before children are born, research shows that music has a beneficial effect on the network of neurons that will be the foundation of their later learning, language development and music ability. Music for Babies fosters the brain growth crucial to healthy young minds. Each volume has been carefully crafted to provide the kind of musical nourishment that scientific study has shown will actively support optimum brain development in a child’s early years. By playing this music, you help build a strong foundation for the innate potential of your infant or toddler. Uniquely appropriate for children from birth to 36 months, Music for Babies is equally enjoyable for older listeners.

ABT took two full years to develop these four CD’s, and did it with the highest quality musicians and recording facilities.  Beyond that, they had each musician place a photo of their own babies and had them play with a conscious intention towards the purpose and caring tone for each CD.  There are many other CD’s touting their own music for babies, but they typically lack any attempt to control the beats per minute, nor the frequency range of the instruments that are being played.  ~~  Only ABT took the time to do all this.  The result is nothing short of the best music for Babies available on the market today.

As an ABT Certified Listening Program provider, these special Baby CD’s are all available in our office for your purchase.

To learn easily and communicate effectively, your child needs to hear well. Hearing damage is the number one undiagnosed health issue in infants, and it can lead to language and learning disabilities.
35% of infants born in the US are not screened for hearing problems. Exposure to loud sounds “toxic noise” is a threat to hearing health. It can be especially harmful during the early childhood years; even everyday sounds can damage the delicate auditory apparatus in very young children. We encourage you to monitor your children’s auditory environment to promote their hearing health.
