Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do I need any special skills to use Moosicology?
No. Moosicology is designed to work without parental assistance. And if you want to engage with your child through the learning of music, you don’t need any musical background because Moosicology will teach your too! The Moosicology Package also includes a Grown-Up’s Guide with tips on how you can best engage with your child through the learning of music and Moosicology.

2. Can babies and toddlers really learn?
Your baby/toddler learns all the time. Babies gain the understanding of their mother tongue within the first year out of the womb, simply through exposure. Similarly, music educators are concerned that babies and children are not getting exposed to the wide range of different music concepts. Moosicology is currently the first and only method of introducing the wide range of real musical concepts through child-appealing songs, because it features the first and only specifically composed songs, stories and activation tracks that teach crucial music skills.
3. My child is already learning an instrument. Do they still need Moosicology?
An instrument playing skill is only developed through repetitive practice. One of the biggest challenges in early instrument learning is motivating your child to do this practice that many children find tedious. Moosicology is a great way to teach your child real music skills that will directly make their practice easier and more enjoyable – and the fun songs of Moosicology show your child the magic of musical skills, giving them the crucial motivation!
4. Where can I buy Moosicology?
5. What will my child learn from Moosicology?
Moosicology teaches core music skills such as rhythm, melody and music reading. The early learning of these skills is scientifically linked to better reading skills, mathematics skills, intelligence and even better behaviour and happiness (less toddler tantrums and more smiles)!
6. Shouldn’t my child listen to classical music?
One famous study from 1992 that claimed that listening to Mozart improves intelligence has since been proven wrong in hundreds of studies. It is not by listening to music, but by learning music that your child becomes more intelligent. Music study improves your child’s reading skills, mathematical understanding and emotional well-being. It is also the only children’s activity that is shown to improve your child’s IQ. And children are shown to gain an IQ advantage of 10-20 points when they learn through educational songs as opposed to through traditional teaching. This is why the Moosicology method teaches real musical skills, linked to the IQ improvement, through the first and only music teaching songs, linked to an even further IQ advantage (see The Method).
7. How will I know Moosicology really works?
Most children who have so far used Moosicology have gained exceptional music skills for their age. Moosicology really works, because it teaches centuries-old music skills that are shown in recent decades of brain research to improve almost all areas of the brain: language, mathematics, reading, memory, well-being…
8. How often should my child use Moosicology?
Scientific research shows that children of 0-7 gain the amazing brain benefits of music with as little as 10-30 minutes of music study a week over a period varying from just a few months to a year. And any music learning is better than none! Simply put Moosicology on and enhance your child’s learning by letting them look at the book’s learning aids. You can spread your child’s Moosicology lessons into two 10- or 15-minute lessons if you wish. And most children request hearing Moosicology much more often than that anyway!
