Notes & Reviews:

TUNE UP YOUR MIND is the first disc in the 3-CD series THE MOZART EFFECT, the program of which was compiled by well-known educator and musician Don Campbell (Campbell is the author of the book by the same name). It undertakes "to heal the body, strengthen the mind and unlock the creative spirit" of children.

If you are familiar with Don Campbell's teaching programs (directed on transforming effects using the healing power of music) you may enjoy it, but you may do so even if you're not. There are a variety of soloists, orchestras, and conductors on the disc, with a wide spectrum of performing techniques and styles. You'll find unexpected arrangements that create amusing sounds--explore it all with your children, especially if you want to introduce the world of classical music to them and don't know where to start.

Label's Note (4/99) - "Don Campbell, musician, teacher and author of THE MOZART EFFECT, has selected some of the best of Mozart's music to stimulate and inspire young minds. Based on up-to-date medical and psychological research in creativity and intelligence, the pieces on each recording have been carefully chosen by the author so that tempos, key signatures and texture of the music change with each selection in order to provide a rich listening and learning experience for children of all ages. Designed to achieve a particular effect, including enhancing IQ, inspiring creativity or exploring movement and motion, each CD includes suggestions and guidance on how to use the power of Mozart's music to ensure maximum benefit for children. Studies prove that the music of Mozart has a powerful effect on the intellectual and creative development of children."
