Prelude to a Musical Life: Prenatal Music Experiences.
Shetler, Donald J.
Music Educators Journal, v71 n7 p26-27 Mar 1985
Preliminary research findings showed that infants who received systematic prenatal musical stimulation exhibit remarkable attention behaviors, imitate accurately sounds made by adults, and appear to structure vocalization much earlier than infants who did not have prenatal musical stimulation. This evidence could radically modify concepts of music learning for the young. (RM)
