The author of the project "Lullabies for the whole family", music therapist Natalia Faustova spoke about what kind of music to choose for a child and how to cultivate musical taste in him.


Today you can find everything on the Internet and on digital media for children. How to develop a good musical taste in a child, accumulating the heritage of different eras?

He is an advocate of developmental pedagogy and psychology, which is based on the child's age and adequate developmental methods, including musical ones. And it is worth starting to cultivate taste even during pregnancy. In addition to their favorite songs, future and new mothers, I recommend listening to classics and singing lullabies. At the same time, I would not play for a newborn, for example, adult songs with incomprehensible lyrics and complex instrumentation. Musical taste is brought up, like everything else, by personal example. If your family has good music, this is already a huge plus.

How do you feel about imitation of noises: the beating of a mother's heart, the sounds of pouring water, "white noise"?

noises really help babies to fall asleep, only correctly selected. And for a tired mother, they turn out to be a real find. I would also recommend our golden fund - little dogs and lullabies. This is generally the best basis for early development. Take something as simple and professional as possible from modern songs. And best of all for you and for the child - sing it yourself.

But what about the classics?

You can add to the repertoire and classics (mostly positive, in the major scale - Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Schubert). Most importantly, make sure that the duration of one composition does not exceed 5 minutes. The sound source should be at least 1.5 m away from the child, and preferably slightly above it. The most optimal time for music sessions is late in the morning, right after breakfast or even during it, as well as the time before going to bed for a night's sleep.

And yet, personally, I am against "adapted versions" of transcription of the classics with synthesized sounds of dubious quality.

ok suitable melodies for babies: Chopin's Nocturnes, Schubert's Ave Maria, Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, Mozart's String Quartets and Sonatas for Piano, Andante to various symphonies by Mozart, Bach's Orchestrated Suites, Strauss Waltzes, "Waltz of the Flowers" from Tchaikovsky's ballet "The Nutcracker", Pachelbel "Canon".

Does music really help premature babies gain weight faster?

truth. According to research by French scientists, listening to classics while eating increases appetite and improves digestion, especially in premature babies or children who are underweight. "Music therapy" is actively used in intensive care centers, where amazing results are noted in stimulating the development and maturation of babies when playing lullabies.

And what to choose for a three-year-old? At this age, the child can already declare that he does not want either Chopin or the sound of the ocean

of this age there is a large number of children's repertoire, written in Soviet times, and, in my opinion, great! These are choral songs (type the choir of Popov, BDKh), and songs from cartoons (performed by Klara Rumyanova, almost all songs by Vladimir Shainsky, etc.) and films (songs by Alexei Rybnikov, Maxim Dunaevsky, Evgeny Krylatov).

You recommend singing lullabies to children of all ages. How does the meaning of lullabies for a child change with age?

Perhaps the most famous melody that is suitable for newborns is the folk "Bayu-bayushki-bayu, do not lie on the edge." At an older age, when the child is already beginning to distinguish words, lullabies can be included in the repertoire that give ideas about nature, animals, and the world around them.

at the age of three to four years, when the child's speech apparatus and imaginative thinking are actively developing, you can begin to include in your repertoire author's lullabies with good music and poetry, for example, on the verses of Lermontov, Bryusov, Maykov, composers Tchaikovsky, Glinka, Balakirev, Soviet and Russian contemporary composers: E. Krylatova from the film "Umka", I. Dunaevsky from the film "Circus", R. Pauls from the film "Long Road in the Dunes", T. Khrennikova from the film "Hussar Ballad", A. Rybnikova from the movie "Little Red Riding Hood", "Star Boy" and others.

Are there any contemporary composers worth paying attention to?

I can recommend a very good project by Irina Bogushevskaya, Andrey Usachev and Alexander Pinegin "Playground" with positive songs that are liked not only by children, but also by adults.

In the author's song, I still love and advise Sergei Nikitin, the wonderful singer-songwriter Raisa Nur. In addition to our interactive lullaby program, we are also preparing a new positive program where we will unite the whole family, young and old, including a nostalgic repertoire for the older generation, and modern author's songs that delight both children and adults. b
