“Never before have I seen such a comprehensive and in-depth review of the neuroscientific and psychological basis of the effects of music on young children. Parents and many others will be anxious to read it because of its very important message. Liisa Henriksson-Macaulay has blazed an important and pioneering trail for others to follow, and I wish this book every success.”

“I am pleased to commend this is a very positive contribution to the public awareness of the power of music to transform children’s lives. Every child is musical. By encouraging their children to make the most of their innate musical potential, parents can support much wider cognitive, emotional and social development as their children grow. Liisa Henriksson-Macaulay’s narrative is engaging and full of rich personal anecdote, as well as a synthesis of key research findings and useful examples for parents of how music can be used successfully to nurture and strengthen children’s development.”

“All the scientists say that learning to play music can increase a child’s IQ. That’s why music – and Moosicology – should be a top priority in young children’s education. All my lot are benefitting, and it’s putting smiles on their faces too. The Moosicology method tackles all the basics in an engaging way, the songs are infectious.

‘The Music Miracle’ is a cracking read. I couldn’t put it down. It has been thoroughly researched and brings together the findings of 1200 scientific studies supporting the link between music training and development in children aged 0-7. I was amazed that evidence shows music is the only thing that boosts children’s biologically determined IQ and this can be achieved with just devoting 1 hour a week.”
