“How we hear transforms our brains and lives,” says Alex Doman, ABT Founder. Sound is a part of our lives as the air we breathe and our food. This is true for kids and adults, which is why at ABT, we offer five different programs for kids and babies to help encourage optimal brain development for kids of all abilities.
Whether using music to help improve symptoms associated with a diagnosis or support healthy brain development, TLP is a natural and safe tool for children of all abilities.
Advanced Brain Technologies uses only the best classical music pieces to promote better mental well-being. The compositions are recorded and composed using the highest quality recording possible to create the most gentle and safe listening experience for young listeners.
Classical music can have positive brain benefits for years. A study at Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine was conducted to discover if the Mozart effect had any scientific evidence. “Students conducted tests on ten men and women where the neural activity was monitored while the subjects were listening to Mozart music, the subjects then took an intelligence test, and researchers found “dramatic activity in the regions of the brain responsible for spatial-temporal reasoning, suggesting the possibility of a direct priming effect of Mozart’s music.”
Many other studies have shown that classical music generally promotes brain health. At ABT, we use a variety of classical compositions, each recomposed and recorded with the brain in mind, making them safe to use at home for kids.
The experience of listening to this beautiful, neuroacoustically-modified classical music has led to numerous positive outcomes for people of all ages with a wide range of challenges. It is scientifically designed to help your brain perceive, process, and respond to information, resulting in children learning and growing without realizing it.
Depending on the goals a family has, ABT offers five different programs to support better brain health for children:
“The act of hearing itself influences the quality of auditory development,” says Lise Eliot, Ph.D. in What’s Going On In There? Her book explains how the brain and mind develop in the first five years of life. All the listening that babies do, including their time in the womb, shapes the way their brains become wired to process and understand different sounds. Exposing them to the right music can be a powerful way to promote optimal brain development.
At ABT, this research was behind the creation of Music for Babies to help improve auditory-based learning, attention, and development in young children. The beautiful and gentle music was developed by a team of experts from the fields of neurodevelopment, child development, education, music, music therapy, sound engineering, and recording. Richard Lawrence and Alex Doman built note by note on discoveries in science and developmental psychology in very young children that help each child achieve their extraordinary and unique potential.
Music for Babies is a unique collection of 4 sixty-minute instrumental recordings produced by ABT; Sleepy Baby, Peaceful Baby, Cheerful Baby, and Playful Baby.
These rich acoustic recordings are masterfully played by the award-winning musicians of Arcangelos Chamber Ensemble. Each volume includes classical and traditional folk music arranged for children and instrumental versions of well-known nursery rhymes and lullabies.
Music for Babies gives our children an early start in their life’s journey. It nurtures a universal wish for health for all children by giving them a melody of calm and relaxed alertness that resonates throughout the body, mind, and soul.
No special equipment is required to play Music for Babies, although the better quality of the sound equipment, the richer the listening experience.
This music can be enjoyed over speakers or through headphones. There is no limit to how often or how long Music for Babies is played, although any listening done through headphones for children under three should be kept to no longer than 30 minutes at a time to avoid middle ear fatigue.
Music for Babies offers four different tracks to compliment a few different babies’ moods.
Helps with sleep by progressively lowering the volume, promoting a “restful feeling and helps to induce sleep.”
A track that is meant to relax the baby.
This program can improve the baby’s mood. It uses upbeat and unexpected arrangements to energize the baby’s brain and enhance its mood. The last program, called cheerful baby, uses relatively fast songs that encourage movement to stimulate active listening.
Lively melodies to engage and inspire babies.
Parents and caregivers can play these four tracks to promote a passive listening experience and boost a child’s brain performance.

TLP Spectrum is the most gentle and foundational of the four core TLP programs, making it an excellent option for children who can tolerate headphones. It has been known to calm auditory sensitivities, improve sensory processing, enhance movement, and reduce stress and anxious feelings to develop a sense of safety and well-being.
This is a headphone-based music listening program, making it an excellent fit for those who can tolerate headphones for 15 minutes daily. Christopher, for example, is a five-year-old with a Sensory Processing Disorder.
As a kindergarten student, he was on the verge of being held back due to his room’s constant auditory and visual distractions. No matter how hard he tried to focus, he became quickly distracted, off-task, and overwhelmed.
He started using TLP, and after two weeks, his grades, mood, and speech started steadily improving, and he instantly jumped to the top percentile in math and reading.
That shift happened due to the targeted approach of TLP Spectrum, improving the auditory processing system. Mary Kidson, an educational therapist, explains why an improved auditory processing system is essential for children.
To perform well in school, children need to ignore various distractions and inhibit attention shifts to irrelevant activities, a skill that improves with TLP. “In my practice, I consider good auditory processing to be foundational in helping students achieve academic success. In my experience, The Listening Program® always provides the best results, and my students are more focused and happier at school and home.” – Mary Kidson, Educational Therapist.

With a targeted focus on improving the auditory and sensory processing systems, TLP spectrum is a great way to help students:
As a result of consistent use of TLP Spectrum, parents and care providers report that tantrums decrease, grades improve, and children seem happier and more confident, making it an excellent program for young students.
Many parents and providers who use TLP Spectrum enjoy knowing which activities are approved for use when children listen to music.
TLP is meant to be enjoyed in a quiet, relaxing environment. For active kids, that can be challenging. We always recommend that you do your best to create a fun listening experience, so your child enjoys their time with TLP.
Movement is ok, as long as it is quiet and not too strenuous for the child. Gently rocking, walking, and dancing are ok. Be creative and remember, these listening sessions are like a workout for the brain, which means they can be stimulating and keep a child awake. Complete listening sessions about 3 hours before bedtime to avoid interfering with your child’s sleep schedule.
Monitor your child’s mood and behavior to know if it’s the appropriate time for TLP. The best time to do it is when your child is calm and relaxed. Parents and caregivers find the most success (and least resistance) when TLP as part of a general routine. When kids know what is happening and expected, they tend to be better prepared for it. Feel free to delay listening if the regularly scheduled time is too chaotic or full of stress.
The following are ideas to try with your child:
Activities for toddlers
Put a kid in a high chair while listening while giving them something to do with their hands.
Have the kid sit with or near you and engage in a quiet activity. Having a comforting person nearby can help kids engage in the music for more extended periods.
Activities for children
Tweens and teens
ABT’s high standards for evidence-based music and innovative approach toward neuroacoustic modifications require headphone delivery.
Headphones allow the brain to receive the therapeutic benefits much more effectively with a more direct pathway to the auditory system.
We know, however, that headphones aren’t always easy to encourage for some kids. If your child has a hard time wearing headphones, the following section can guide you.
Like anything new, most children are curious and excited to learn about headphones. For a child who may not have experience with them, simply showing each part of the headphone and giving them a quick explanation could be enjoyable to some kids. Put them on your head so they can see you wearing them.
Sally Bober, a seasoned TLP Provider, shares how she and the families she serves have achieved a 99.9% success rate with even the most sensitive young children. Here are a few prompts she has found effective:

For young children, the addition of gentle music can enhance their development ent trajectory in a fun way that doesn’t feel like work. Using TLP Spectrum or any of the 4 Music for Babies programs can be a great way to promote positive brain development for kids of all ages and abilities.
