Music and Memory and Intelligence In the early 1990s, an experiment was done which seemed to show that listening to classical music could improve memory! This effect has come to be known as "The Mozart Effect" because the musical selection that seemed to improve memory was a song by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
