Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
 
i very much like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. as a young kid i listened to him without knowing it was mozart, i thought it was a guy whose last name was wolfgang. its an archetypal example of the classical music. i didnt much care for his opera pieces much except one called The Magic Flute Queen of the Night Aria.

Studies have shown that while listening to Mozart, the neurons in your brain are better able to make new connections. I learned this from one of my professors, who also teaches a music cognition course. So listen to Mozart when you study! You'll remember more :)

hmh. . . study. . . my music lit teacher had us listen to Mozart for homework then write a paper on it. my favorite assignment. . . i think i was the only one though. yah i know that from somewhere, its also a good switch from the 'music of today' as my teacher says, it 'gets you thinkinh'

I'm a bit put off when I try to multi task like that.

I do it before I study. :)

Mozart is my favorite composer and perhaps my favorite musician of all time. He made simply brilliant music. I've only scratched the surface though, there are a bunch of his operas I haven't heard and I haven't listened to any of his chamber music.

Did he mention what it was about the music that made you able to make better connections?

I think that's still being researched. I'd like to know too.

its called the Mozart Effect, many studies have been conducted to try and figure out. maybe try googling it. and you will find the answer

Is it just Mozart who has that effect? Or are there other classical composers or even non-classical musicians who's music produces similar effects?

I know it's his most reknowned piece and all, but Requiem is like WHOAH.
