The Acappella Babies DVD series is designed to provide children ages 3 months and up with early exposure to vocal melodies and harmonies that promote ear recognition of the language of music. Along with the recognition of music, the DVD series will expose them to the world around them in a nurturing way. Complex harmonies are paired with visually stimulating imagery to encourage learning through sight and sound.

Kathleen A. Corrigall and Laurel J. Trainora, who are part of the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience, and Behavior, McMaster University,Hamilton, Ontario, and Rotman Research Institute, Baycrest Hospital, Toronto, Ontario, Canada feel “Even adults with no formal music lessons have implicit musical knowledge acquired through exposure to the music of their culture. Two of these abilities are knowledge of key membership (which notes belong in a key) and harmony (chord progressions). Studies to date suggest that perception of harmony emerges around 5–6 years of age. Using simple tasks, we found that formal music training influences key and harmony perception in 3- to 6-year-olds, and that even non-musicians as young as 3 years have some knowledge of key membership and harmony.
Interaction from the earliest of ages is highly recommended. Every Acappella Babies set is a DVD and CD combination. The DVDs allow parents and babies to share the world around them with each other and others around. Sites of nature, animals, and colors paired with different ranges of motion can open up a whole new world.
The CD offers the opportunity to play and share things together everywhere you go. No matter what you are doing you can share the sounds of Acappella together. The soft sounds may be played in the car, while playing, or settling in for bedtime.
