Post 2 Mozart Effect

From lecture 5, the Mozart Effect argues hat listening to Mozart's music can actually increase the spatial reasoning ability in our minds. I've believe today, music is the easiest way to retain knowledge. Think of how many people can recite every lyric to multiple songs within a few times of listening. Music divides your attention just enough so that you can perform a task without feeling stress. Even though there is no proof that the effect increases spatial reasoning, it is very well known and still being talked about, which makes the effect somewhat truthful. 


  1. I agree with you in the sense that there are so many songs that I know every lyric too and think it's very effective to teach things in song. For example when we learned multiplication in my school there were songs we had to sing that put the factors of multiplication to the tune of childhood songs and I still to this day sing those songs to help me quickly remember my multiplication factors. I can't help it, it just happens naturally. However I don't think it's because of my spacial reasoning, simply just catchy tunes that you can't get out of your head.

  2. Dan,
    The Mozart Effect was one of my favorite subjects that we covered. I also agree that music can be one of the easiest ways to remember things . It allows us to learn in a different aspect which I believe today's generation understands better. Music has become an even bigger part of our lives through the years, so what better what to learn then by doing something you enjoy.

  3. Hi Dan, I always find that listening to classical music helps me when I am studying. When I was little my mom always used to ask me how I knew all the words to so many songs, and I think it's because music really stimulates my mind to retain information. I think this is really interesting, and enjoyed learning about it this semester.
