A child starts music in the mother’s womb!
It has been demonstrated in a study published in 2010 on “Functional specializations for music processing in the human newborn brain”.
A foetus develops musicality as early as hears are developing in uteri. The foetus can listen to the mother’s voice, which has a musicality, a tone, a pace, a pitch. Then the baby will dissociate the surrounding sounds. When born, the baby will be able to recognize his/her mother’s voice amongst other voices and sounds. The lullabies will also take a great part of the baby’s growing, developing languages skills. The baby/toddler will then acquire the “musicality” of his/her first language.
