Tuning into Rockabye Radio will not only help parents to create the perfect ambience for a happy home, research has shown that listening to music from an early age can help aid everything from healthy sleep patterns to language development and concentration. In fact, it is understood that playing music to your baby as early as 22 weeks’ gestation, helps them recognise and find comfort in their favourite music up to a year after birth.
Founders, Mike and Karen, have a plethora of knowledge and experience under their belt. Having studied classical violin, Karen set up The British Academy of New Music as well as teaching and training music teachers across the east of England. Whilst Mike is a renowned composer and guitarist who has worked on west end shows such as The Lion King and Mamma Mia. Not only does their musical talent sound phenomenal, their knowledge of the benefits of music for children are second to none.
Commenting on the new radio station, Co-Founder, Karen Eaves, said:
“We are thrilled to be launching Rockabye Radio. We wanted to combine our expertise to deliver a radio station designed especially for young families. Promising age appropriate music that is played at the right time of the day, from lullabies to nursery rhymes and lots in between, to suit every parent’s needs, day or night!”
She continued: “Babies do not need music to be oversimplified or dumbed down and are able to respond to a range of styles and complex sounds. The music we broadcast is curated to support development and different activities, in the hope that we support family life and bring some joy through music.”
