Classical music for crying babies
I heard about this on the radio this morning and was intrigued. At first I thought they had a lineup of babies howling on Eb G Bb or in a minor key or something! But what a nice idea it is - 45 minutes for mums and their little kids. Soothing Faure perhaps? Not the Bruch Violin Concerto slow movement I heard this morning which was brilliant.
from the radio station website: 3MBS - FM about 203 on the dial, the best station for 'classical' music in Victoria.

Numerous studies around the world have concluded that playing music to babies in the womb and in the early years helps build the neural bridges along which thoughts and information travel.
Research suggests it creates a feeling of calm; helping babies to be soothed by classical music.
Music for children will be performed live and babies and adults are all welcome.
3MBS FM is now installed in our beautiful new premises in the St Euphrasia Building at the Abbotsford Convent. We will always continue to promote classical music not only through broadcasting but through music education, appreciation and live performances such as the Cry Baby Classical Concerts.
The music of Mozart and Beethoven will still be alive in 30 years when your baby is an adult and you can guarantee 3MBS FM will be part of it!
