. /ead the te*t. Are the sentences true or false0
Can Mozart make you clever?
Some people believe that young children should listen to classical music. They think it can change a
childs brain and make the child clever. They call this the Mozart eect.
This idea became very popular in the 1!!"s. #overnments and universities spent a lot o money over
the ne$t t%enty years to test i it is true. The research sho%s that it is not. &istening to Mozart does
not have a permanent eect on your brain.
'o%ever( research sho%s that listening to music can help children learn. Mike )d%ards teaches
eight*year*olds. 'e %orks in a special school or children %ith behaviour problems. 'e is not a music
teacher( but in his classroom there is al%ays music.
+ play the music at the beginning o the lesson( Mike says( and it really %orks,
Mikes students are sometimes diicult to control. Theyre not stupid or lazy( he says( but theyre
sometimes noisy and rude and you have to be very patient. The music is calm and -uiet. +t helps the
children to eel calm and -uiet too. Then they can learn better.
+ dont think music changes a childs brain or personality( but it helps them to concentrate so they
can be more creative. They en.oy coming to class and it makes my .ob easier because theyre more
polite and hard*%orking.
So does Mozart make you a better student/ Maybe. 0ut Mikes students are listening to the blues,
