Classical Museum incorporates the 21 most famous composers in the history and their best masterpieces.
we hope more and more people can love the classical music again. No doubt nowadays there’s much wrong with classical music. Namely, it can be stuffy, pretentious, unnecessarily formal, and the act of actually going to a concert is both expensive and a dress-up extravaganza that leaves little room for, well, enjoyment. However if you really threw yourself into the classical music and listen it from the bottom of your heart, you will find the Classical Music is also can be enjoyable, interesting and profound.

And there are other five reasons that people should listen to Classical Music as much as possible:
1. Smarten Up
Known as the “Mozart effect,” a set of research published by the Oxford University Press contends that listening to Mozart’s music can make you momentarily smarter, raising your IQ by a few points while you’re listening.

2. Tap Into Those Emotions
When one hears Chopin’s “Nocturne in E Flat Major, Op. 9, No. 2” most people don’t think of its rounded binary form with a C or the fact that he wrote it when he was twenty-one. Nor do you think about the fact that it’s a nocturne and therefore meant to be played at the end of the evening, beginning with sonorous melodies and ending with subdued passion. Classical music is super technical, and there’s much that can be learned, but what’s really interesting – what brings people back again and again to their favorite songs – are the emotions that most classical music conjures.

3. Good for learning Language
Researchers at Northwestern University found that the neural connections made while listening to or playing classical music prime the brain for new languages and sounds. The study, which used Vivaldi’s compositions, showed that after listening to classical music people scored higher on verbal fluency tests both in their own language as well as in foreign languages they had been learning.

4. De-stresses like a Valium
Thirty minutes of Mendelssohn or one dose of Valium? It’s your pick because, according to a study at the University of Baltimore, both the music and the drug have the same anti-anxiety benefits for heart patients. You don’t have to undergo a triple-bypass to be de-stressed by classical music though. Listening to any type of non-frenetic classical music — be it in the background at home or at an actual concert — helps you do some serious relaxing.

5. The Experience of Joy, of Sorrow, and of Love
Benjamin Zander, a composer, teacher, and TED talk presenter, is pretty much the coolest person in classical music (sorry Lindsey Stirling). For Zander, classical music is a means to finding new meaning, new possibilities, and new connections. But he also extols the virtues of listening to a song from start to finish, paying attention not to each note but to the song as a whole, following the piece in its entirety, as if it were a living being.He prompts the audience to, “Think of somebody who you adore, who’s no longer there – a beloved grandmother, a lover, somebody in your life who you love with all your heart, but that person is no longer with you. Bring that person into your mind and at the same time follow [Chopin’s Prelude] all the way from B to E, and you’ll hear everything Chopin had to say.” What Chopin had to say – and what all good classical music has to say — is a ranging set of reflections on love and happiness and melancholy, which meditates on the human condition, before culminating in catharsis, Truth, and Beauty.

In one word, we wish you can enjoy the classical music at our Classical Museum, and hope to hear feedback from you to let us make our product more valuable.
