Classical music has an incredible ability to change and enhance a mood or atmosphere. If you need convincing, you have only to think of your favourite films or TV programmes and see if you remember the music. The best films are the ones that engage you on all levels and the soundtrack has a huge effect on that.
If you think back to your own childhood, there will be songs and music which you associate with the best things you remember. My father loved Dance Band music and so whenever I hear it played, warm childhood memories come flooding back and I think of him. I love that music just as much now.
Give some thought to the music that you play in your home while your children play and when you are relaxing together. You can choose music to create different moods and when the kids need to blow of some steam and its awful weather outside or are in need of calming down it is very useful to have just the right piece of music to play for that particular purpose.
If you put some music on while your kids are playing or doing some art activities, it really encourages and stimulates creativity and imagination, as well as building a love of classical music. So here is a list of 10 different tracks chosen especially to enhance calm and tranquillity in your home.
