Infants mimic music too

Parent Interventions

Infants are not only capable of mimicking the words they hear but music too. A study done by Lucia Benetti, a doctoral student at The Ohio State University School of Music revealed that infants are also capable of making sounds similar to a song they hear. The song 'Happy Birthday' was played on a toy and a 15-month boy made sounds similar to the beginning of the song hours after he heard it. An analysis of the sounds showed the boy hitting the first six notes of "Happy Birthday" almost spot-on, in G major. The finding has relevance in Kindergarten where music can be effectively. It shows that it's possible for infants to learn melodies form the music they hear around them. She said future work could examine a larger group of babies, with more data, to see whether James' response was typical.
