Baroque Music Make You Smarter
Baroque music makes you smarter, healthier, more mentally well-adjusted and athletic. How’s that for a laundry list of good things to be had?
Baroque music is said to have a positive effect on the brain in terms of learning and retaining information. Whether that is actually true or not, I can attest to the idea that I get more work done when listening to Baroque.
Something about alpha wave stimulation increases one’s retention while relieving stress from your brain. The other thing that just occurred to me was whether it worked because it works or if it works because I believe it works.
Just be aware that there are folks out there who strongly disagree with the idea that Baroque or Classical music can improve your mental function. While they are certainly entitle to have and to hold their opinion on the matter, I take the position that it helps me. If you want to see if it will help you, then trying it out is in order.
Some of you young folks who feel classical is not cool, or boring or whatever need to remember that Baroque was the rock music of its era. Try it out for yourself and see if you receive any of the benefits listed here.

Senbonzakura – Lindsey Stirling – Baroque or Classical?
Is this Baroque music? I honestly don’t know, but it sounds like it to my ear. Violin music, especially that which seems to have Irish influence, appeals to my ear and calms me down at the same time it inspires me to action.

Anti-seizure effect: The latest 2014 study revealed that listening to Mozart K 448 (Sonata for Two Pianos in D major) reduced the seizure recurrence and epileptiform discharges in children epilepsy. The antiepileptic effect of Mozart’s sonata has been earlier demonstrated by Taiwanese scientists.1
Truthfully, when I started researching for this post I was not expecting the range of positive effects to be so broad. It makes you smarter, healthier and more athletic.
