I am an elementary school teacher and have played this CD in the background in my classroom for several years. I can't say that it has made my students smarter in math, English, or science, but it has made them smarter in music. And who knows...maybe it does stimulate the development of a certain area of the brain in young children that doesn't get stimulated by other forms of learning. It certainly hasn't made them dumber. The one positive thing I have noted about the affect of this music: my students are much calmer, more relaxed, and much more cooperative when it is playing.

Some years ago, I read about studies of the use of music to enhance or inhibit learning. As I was teaching a difficult subject at a community college, where many students had no study skills, I decided to buy the album and see if it could help in any way to improve the concentration of my students. What I found was that the choices made in putting this album together were strange and off-putting. A lyrical and rhythmically soothing piece followed by drums and trumpets. To much loud stuff interspersed with calming pieces. So I would not recommend this album if you want to use it as background noise during examinations, or soothing music to use during study sessions. Too "jumpy." I ended up making my own tape of assorted Mozart pieces that I already had in my collection, selecting only calm, quiet, rhythmically constant, and lyrical pieces. My students liked it.

On the other hand, if you have no knowledge of Mozart's music and never saw the movie Amadeus, then this album is a nice sampling of his music. That's why I give it 3 stars. It is not good for enhancing study skills, but it is nice to listen to; my husband liked it in the car on long trips.

I entered college a few years ago at the age of 42 as a student of anatomy and kinesiology.I needed all the help I could get! I dearly love classical music - Mozart being my favorite. This beautiful music, which I listened to many times while studying, may have really helped. I ended-up graduating "Cum Laude." Was my success due to listening to Mozart? You decide, but I think listening may have impacted my learning. I highly recommend this disc.

This is just over all great classical music, maybe it makes you smarter maybe it does not, but that makes no difference. This classical music is just excellent all around and deserves to be listened to for its quality more then what it may or may not do for you.

This CD is an example of the rush to capitalize on a recent psychological publication which found increases in subjects spatial IQ scores after listening to 10 minutes of Mozart's sonata for 2 pianos in D Major (K.448). The choice of tracks on this disk must be based on some adhoc criterion as only one Mozart piece was investigated in the study and this doesn't even appear on this disk! Nevertheless, subsequent studies have failed to replicate this finding. Mozart doesn't make you smarter!

May not make you smarter, but it's very enjoyable to listen to (especially at work).
