We recommend that you remain interactive with your child by holding, rocking, or dancing them to the rhythm of the music.  Even gently moving their arms to the beat will help stimulate learning and activate the social part of their brain.  For prenatal children, it might seem weird to play music to a child that isn’t born yet but at month 5, they do have hearing and are able to be comforted by the music.  Again, the idea is to get your child used to hearing this highly complex music and repetition is the key!  Watch our How-To video for a complete guide on how you should be using Nuryl with your baby.

The music in these playlists consists of what we call “High Information Music”, which is music tonally rich with highly complex harmonies that move rapidly into unexpected places by incorporating unusual melodic structures.   All of the music in our playlists was selected with this thought in mind and is the same music that our CEO Rick Beato used to play to his son Dylan as a baby.  Interspersed through all 29 playlists is proprietary music that you will not find anywhere else, as well as mini music lessons that will get your child used to hearing the different keys, scales, and modes with spoken word mixed in.

Each playlist is meant to be played in it’s entirety at least once a day but you are of course welcome to play it longer because the more exposure your child has, the more familiar they will become with recognizing these high-information melodies and chord changes.  These pieces are highly complex and layered and can take years to get completely familiar with.  Nuryl CEO Rick Beato would sometimes play these same playlists for up to 3-4 hours each day with his son Dylan.  Of course, we understand that life gets busy and you may not have the time each day to play the entire playlist in full but every bit of exposure helps and you should try to make your routine last the full playlist running time.  Just this daily exposure to the Nuryl music will help stimulate your child’s brain and boost their cognition and learning capabilities.  Repetition is important.
There is no specific time of the day that is best to use the app with your child although you do want them to be alert and not tired.  Certainly right before a nap or while they are sleeping would not be good times of course because their brains need to be receptive enough to pay attention to what they are listening to.  Just as you wouldn’t send your child to school at their bedtime, Nuryl is a curriculum as well and your child needs to be awake and alert for learning.  We also don’t suggest playing it while your child sleeps as we don’t want your child to make the subconscious association with the music and nap time.
When you subscribe to the Nuryl curriculum, you will initially receive a playlist that corresponds to your child’s date of birth (DOB). Each consecutive month, you will receive a new playlist that will automatically download onto your device. This allows your child to be exposed to many different pieces of High-Information music over the course of their subscription and will help keep the curriculum fresh.
The Nuryl curriculum was designed specifically to take advantage of the windows of brain plasticity that occur in children between the ages of 0-2yo although there are other ones that occur between 2-6 that can be beneficial as well.  Once a child reaches 6 year old, these specific windows of learning close never to be opened again which is why we only support the use of the Nuryl curriculum with children ages 0-6.  While we don’t suggest that Nuryl will help in any way for adults, we also don’t discourage it and would love to hear your progress if you decide to follow the curriculum for yourself.

Each playlist is designed to be at least over an hour long.  The number of songs and lessons within each playlist varies but our smallest playlist is 13 songs and our largest is 24.  If you find that your playlist only contains a few songs, it is possible the playlist did not fully download.  Make sure you are on a strong enough Wi-FI connection and don’t close the app while it is downloading the content.  You can also log out and then log back in and the playlist should continue downloading.  Fast forwarding quickly to each song will also help them download rather than having to wait during your child’s listening time.  If you still find that your playlist is short, then deleting and reinstalling the Nuryl app should rectify this issue after you log in again.  Of course, you can always contact [email protected] and our support staff will be more than happy to help.

If you want to track the listening time of each child individually and for each to have their own playlist, you currently need to have each one registered with a different email address and a separate subscription.  You can do this at www.nuryl.com.  Once you have the Nuryl app installed on your device, log in using the different email and passwords for each child, and a different playlist will be downloaded and stored on your device.  Just make sure to use the correct playlist for each child as the app also records their daily/monthly/yearly usage.  Of course, it is not necessary for each child to have their own playlist as they can share and no one playlist is more beneficial than another as each one is composed solely of High-Information music.

We do not recommend using in ear headphones as it is very easy to turn them up to damaging volume levels for your child. If you are to use headphones, there are a few models out there designed for children that don’t let the volume get above a certain level and we strongly recommend these.  Also, some devices have a volume-limit feature under the audio settings that allows you to set a maximum threshold for your child, say like 75%.  We recommend this as well if you are going to use headphones with your child, but again, we do not recommend it.  If you want to read up on this, here is a link… http://www.howtogeek.com/222942/htg-explains-why-your-kids-should-be-using-volume-limiting-headphones/ 

There is a password reset button on your Nuryl app’s login page that will bring up a box for you to enter your email address.  Once you hit Reset, you will be sent an email with a link to a web address to reset your password.  If you need further help, please contact [email protected].

We recommend that your child get at least one hour of listening in a day with their specific playlist.  This would correspond to 100%.  Of course, any more time spent listening to the music would be wonderful and our stats go up to 3 hours of listening a day, or 300%.  The app will keep track of your daily, monthly, and yearly listening for your reference and to see how well they are doing.

The Nuryl curriculum is mainly designed for all children ages 5-months prenatal up to 2 years old but your child can use it up to age 6.  Your baby’s first two years are a critical time of heightened brain plasticity (the ability to learn through experience). New experiences create a neural scaffold of connections upon which future learning is built. The more a connection is stimulated, the stronger it becomes, and the stronger the foundation will be. During the first few years of life, critical windows for learning open and shut. At Nuryl, we emphasize exposing your child to our playlists during these critical times.  While prenatal to 2yo is the most intense learning period, there are other windows of learning after the age of 2 until age 6 as well that your child can take advantage of and we recommend starting children over 2 as soon as possible.

-We do not officially support android operating systems below 5.0.  You can still install and use the app but we cannot guarantee optimal performance.
-Before downloading the current playlist, make sure you are on an efficient WiFi network.  Also, be sure to let the entire playlist download before closing the Nuryl app or working on another app.
-If you are having issues downloading the Nuryl app, you should check to see that it will allow 3rd-party downloads because sometime this may be turned off.  This is usually found in your settings area although each device may be different.  Refer to your user manual if necessary.
-Clearing your cache can also help improve performance of any app on your device.  First, navigate to Settings on your device.  Go to Applications and then Applications Manager.  Find the ALL tab.  Scroll down to find the app that is having issues and tap on it.  Then you should see 2 options.  Clear Data and Clear Cache.  Clear Cache is the option you should start with.  It will get rid of saved data that allows apps to load a little quicker when you launch them.  Clearing it means the app will open a little slower but your main problem might well be solved.  Make sure that you are only clearing the Cache and not Data, as this will erase the current playlist from your device.
-If you find that you are still having issues, we recommend you delete and then re-install the app.
-If you need further help, please contact [email protected]

We recommend a minimum of 1 hour of listening per day with our playlist. It is fine for your baby to be exposed to other music beyond that.
