Does listening to classical music enhance infants' intelligence?

Does listening to classical music enhance infants' intelligence?

No evidence for this: Classical music is wonderful, relaxing and exciting at times both recorded and attending live concerts (nothing like it). But there is no proof that your creativity or intellectual capacity will be altered.
