The IQ in Music – Do Music Lessons For Your Kids Make Them Smarter?
Simply listening to classical music – the so-called ‘Mozart effect’ – does not make you smarter. I have presented the grounds for this conclusion elsewhere. In this article we take a look at the question, “Do music lessons make a child smarter? Do music lessons have ‘collateral benefits’ that extend to non-musical areas of intelligence? Do music lessons increase a child’s overall IQ level, making them better at reasoning, math and language comprehension?” How this question has been answered is as interesting as what the answer turns out to be.
Why is this question of interest?
Stretch for a leg split in ballet by warming up the hamstrings and hips with all of the plies, and do a hamstring stretch starting with the knees on the floor…
Please think: You may have noticed that these stretches were presented on the Stretches page. They are repeated here since this stretch is the proper preparation for your body prior to attempting the splits.
Question by hedgewitch*~*~*~: Would you allow your son to take up ballet lessons?
I did ballet until I was 13. In our ballet school of 400 students there was two boys (late 1970s, early 1980s).
When my daughter did ballet up to ten years ago at the same school there was 800 students and 6 boys (1998)
Question by RainbowZebra <3: How expensive are beginner dance and swimming lessons?
I’m a teenager who wants to learn to swim and dance, but I don’t know how expensive lessons would be. For dance, I would want to take beginner ballet classes, just for fun to learn a little. For swimming, I would just want to take beginner classes on stuff like basic strokes and breathing, and try to work on building up swimming strength throughout the year. I know that prices are different depending on where you go, but what would you say the average prices would be?
