An old claim, that playing Mozart while baby is nearby, seems to help eventual IQ, although not proven, seems fine with me.

In brief: I really doubt it

I find music to be a potent distractor and can't study with the stuff.
The way the "mozart effect" was promoted (papers quoted out of context) reeked of charlatanism and quickly got into big-money politics. This is unfortunate because music of all kinds has potent effects on the brain, as everyone knows. This cries out for study, but don't buy simplistic claims.

Wikipedia is often wildly inaccurate, but the review at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozart_effect seems in keeping with my reading over the years. I'm a classically-trained keyboard player myself -- so I've followed it, and its troublesome. Choose your music based on your tastes, and courtesy to those around you.
