Extract from the Classic fm
Research has found that listening to live classical music evokes positive feelings in children, and has a direct impact on their listening and concentration skills.
After the experience, they were surveyed about their thoughts and feelings on the live music and how it made them feel.
82 percent of children said they felt positive feelings during the live performance, with more than half of the group specifically feeling calm or relaxed while listening.
The majority of their teachers also noted that the workshops had directly influenced development in the listening and concentration skills of the children.
