Mozart was born in Salzburg, Austria, January 27, 1756.

In the United States the notion was first written about in a 1993 paper by Frances Rauscher and Gordon Shaw. It reported that brief exposure(8-10min) to a Mozart piano sonata produces a temporary increase in spatial reasoning scores, amounting to the equivalent of 8–9 IQ points. Over the next several years the research paper was mentioned in several newspapers including the New York Times and Boston Globe.

In 1998 Zell Miller, governor of Georgia, announced that his proposed state budget would include $105,000 a year to provide every child born in Georgia with a tape or CD of classical music. Clearly he believed in the Mozart Effect and it’s connection with music and mental ability. There has been numerous studies to approve and disapprove this theory but in the end a person has to be their own judge.

Chip Heath, an associate professor of organizational behavior, and Bangerter compared different. U.S. states' levels of media interest in the Mozart Effect with each state's educational problems. They found that in states with the most problematic educational systems (such as Georgia and Florida), newspapers gave the most coverage to the Mozart Effect. In fact spikes in media interest generally correspondes to events outside of science.

Several years before the death of his mother, at age fifteen, Mozart had been installed as the concertmaster in the orchestra of the Archbishop of Salzburg. Things did not go very well since Mozart did not get along with the Archbishop. Their relations deteriorated to the point where, in 1781, Mozart quit this lofty position and headed for Vienna, quite against his father’s wishes. It was also evident that Mozart grew increasingly restless without the influence of his mother in the family. Tensions between Leopold and his son mounted over time. In Vienna, Mozart was at first kept busy and happy by composing. His first German Opera, Die Entführung aus dem Serail (The Abduction from the Seraglio), attained immediate and lasting success. Soon after its first performance in 1782, Mozart married Konstanze Weber, a step for which his father never forgave him. The young couple visited Salzburg the following year; Konstanze sang the soprano solo part in the Mass in C Minor, K. 427 when the incomplete work was first heard at St. Peter’s Church. Mozart, who earlier had distinguished himself as a violinist, now was eager to make a name for himself in Vienna by appearing as a pianist, in concerts given by himself and others.

On January 24, 1761 when Mozart was only five years old, he learned now to play his first piece of music, a scherzo by Georg Christof Wagenseil.
