Solving Bedtime Problems
with High Tech Lullabies.

New Lullabies 2 (2004) Album now available

By using the latest understanding of musical tuning, and the human brain wave patterns found during sleep, Charles Lucy has produced a new recording. LucyTuned Lullabies (from around the world) encourage sleep with new renditions and special tunings of traditional lullabies from around the world. When played to small children they have the effect of making them drowsy and gradually they fall asleep.

"All the recent research shows that children exposed to music from an early age develop better language and reading skills and a generally heightened ability to concentrate and therefore learn. So music is not just good for the soul - it can actually promote the literacy and numeracy targets at the heart of the new agenda." 
Sir Simon Rattle of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, on the need for music in schools.

These well-established lullabies were collected by Dorothy Berliner Commins and published in 1967 by Random House in Lullabies of the World. They have been reproduced here with kind permission from her estate and her daughter. The lullabies have been found effective for generations. Now by adding the technology of alpha and sub-alpha beating to natural tuning, the ultimate child soother has been developed. The slowing rhythms lull your baby to sleep whilst introducing the sounds of diverse types of music. It is anticipated that children brought up using these sounds will easily appreciate other music from around the world. The rhythms and intonations, which may at first sound strange to adult Western ears, will be familiar for them.

Play LucyTuned Lullabies quietly in the nursery at bedtime. To those who have previously only experienced and appreciate Western musical tuning, it may at first sound very different, yet see what a difference it makes to bedtime. It also works on adults so avoid use when driving or using machinery.

Should you prefer better quality sound and convenience, the recordings are available on CD for yourself, or as an harmonious gift from
