After logging in to the app after your subscription purchase, it will download one playlist.  The point is to listen to this playlist with your child for one month so they can get familiar with the complex music and unexpected changes, as well as become familiar with the different keys.  And no, it does not need to be in sequence.  Just the exposure to the songs is enough.  Then, the next month, you will receive a new playlist that you will use for a month.  If a user starts using the playlists when their child is prenatal, then they will be able to listen to all 29 playlists by the time they are age 2 (our playlists do go up to month 72 just in case a user wants to go further).  Be aware that all of the playlists are not listed, and due to the space required to store them, they are not all downloaded to your device… just one month at a time.

If you do not have a subscription and are just trying the app, you will still get one playlist that you can use with your child and the concept is the same.  Listen to these songs in repetition for a month to get your child familiar with the music.  Then decide if you want to go further with a paid subscription.

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.

For our prenatal users, we recommend either using headphones on the mothers belly or using an external speaker like your phone or a bluetooth speaker.  You should use the headphones and speakers at a medium to low volume so as not to startle your baby, and a good example of this volume might be conversational level.  Amniotic fluid is a great conductor of sound so less is more in this case.

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… 

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.

At the minimum, we recommend 30 minutes of listening time a day.  However, while each playlist was originally meant to be played in it’s entirety at least once a day, 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.  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 if you can.  You can even break it up into smaller 20-minute sessions.  Just this daily exposure to the Nuryl music may help stimulate your child’s brain and boost their cognition and learning capabilities.  Repetition is very important!

Playlists are downloaded based on the DOB of your child in your account.  On the day that your child is born, your app will consider that Month 1 and download the Month 1 playlist.  Any time before that date, you would have received the Prenatal playlists.  Every month on that same DOB day, you will get the next playlist in line.  If you think you have the incorrect month, just take the DOB and count the months backwards or forwards until you get to the current date.  That will be the playlist you should have.  Also to be clear, the Month 6 playlist is not saying your child is 6 months old, but rather that you are starting the 6th playlist and at the end of that month, your child will be 6 months old.  We hope this makes sense.

Please contact support if you have further questions.

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.

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.

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  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 recommend a minimum of 30 minutes of listening per day with our brain-stimulating Nuryl playlist. Of course, it is fine for your baby to be exposed to other music beyond that and we certainly encourage it to help keep them well rounded and expose them to as much music as possible.

High-Information music is defined as “music tonally rich with highly complex harmonies that move rapidly into unexpected places by incorporating unusual melodic structures”.  Some of this music certainly sounds different and while we are aware that some users love this style, we know that others may not.  We want you to understand that while some of it may sound strange, dark and dissonant, it is these changes and melodies that stimulate your child’s brain functioning and help it to grow new neural connections.  From 5 months prenatal to 2 years of age is the time when your child is learning the most and we specifically designed the entire Nuryl curriculum to take advantage of these learning windows.

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.

The Nuryl curriculum is not designed as a therapeutic approach, though combination therapies that use music are common for children with developmental issues. There have been many research studies showing promising and positive results, although these have primarily been in teenagers and adults. Such studies have incorporated musical therapy into rehabilitation programs aimed at stimulating multiple regions of the brain- areas involved in motor control/coordination, cognition, language, and emotional state.

Musical therapy has also been used with preterm infants and research suggests that appropriately designed musical interventions may improve upon a newborn’s cardiac rhythms, feeding, and overall alertness. We encourage parents to talk with their doctors about incorporating music therapy into their child’s therapies at home and later at school. One of the wonderful things about appropriately designed music-based therapies is a potentially positive outcome with relatively no/low risks.  An infant’s brain is highly plastic, and able to change and heal in a way an adult brain simply can not, so now is the time to try whatever therapies you can, including Nuryl.

We do not have a published list of the songs we are using because even though half are proprietary to Nuryl and cannot be found anywhere else, the other half you can find in the public domain, and so we don’t advertise what those songs are for the people who have not paid for a subscription.  Of course, if you have a subscription, you will see every month the songs the app is playing and you could write them down.  Each playlist will contain between 13 to 24 songs depending on the playlist.

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.

When you receive a new Nuryl playlist on an android device, you may see a “downloading” message as each new song is loaded.  The app is loading each song into memory so it can be played back continuously without pausing.  We recommend that anytime you receive a new playlist, use the FF button to skip to each song and allow it to load, then skip to the next song and allow it to load.  Repeat this process for each song (should take about 1 minute) and then your Nuryl playlist will playback continuously.

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.

Your playback stats created when you use the Nuryl app must be first sent to your account on our server and from there, the app reads these stats after you start the app each time.  Stats are sent to your account for archival once an hour so there may be some lag time from when you use the app and when the stats are accurately represented on your stats page.  Don’t worry though… they remain attached to your account and will get there soon!

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].

-The Nuryl app is not officially supported on Iphone, Ipod, and Ipads below OS version 10.  You may install the app and use it but we cannot guarantee optimal performance.
-Some IOS version 10 devices may have issues running the Nuryl app with the current operating system and if you are experiencing random crashing, please close all other apps and keep the Nuryl app in the foreground during use.
-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 experiencing functionality issues, try upgrading to the most recent iOS (operating system) for your device.
-Closing all other apps will help create a better performance for any app on your device.  You can do this by double-pressing the Home button which will fan out all of your open applications.  Then swipe up on the applications you would like to close.
-If you find that you are still having issues, we recommend you delete and then re-install the app.
-Please note that if the Nuryl app is in the foreground during use, the device lock mechanism will be temporarily bypassed.
-If you need further help, please contact [email protected]

-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]

So as of now, we have no plans on incorporating our app with the Sonos system or Apple TV as there isn’t a huge demand for it.  Since the time we have been in business, we have only had a few requests for this, and to integrate our app with the Sonos system, their company requires us to pay a certain fee per year that we cannot at this time justify due to the demand.  We expect that as our user base grows, we will possibly branch out to that avenue and others like it.  You can however still use a bluetooth speaker like Google Home or Amazon Echo with the Nuryl app if that works for you.  We apologize for this inconvenience but hope you understand.

The Nuryl app is available in both the Apple App store and the Google Play store for android users.

Our Monthly and Yearly subscriptions do renew automatically at the end of the pay period on the day of the original purchase.  We understand that some of our Yearly users will fall away from using the nuryl app and forget about the renewal, and for this reason we do give refunds for the yearly subscription renewal if you contact us at [email protected] within 14 days of the charge. We do not give refunds for the monthly subscription renewals.  (Note that all subscription purchase receipts indicate that the subscription will renew at the end of the pay period with the exception of the 3-year subscription.).

There are no refunds for the Monthly subscription as we do provide a free trial playlist to experience with your child before making the decision to purchase a subscription.  Also, refunds cannot be claimed for any partial- month subscriptions.  However, we do offer a full refund for the yearly and 3-Year subscriptions if you notify us at [email protected] within 14 days of the subscription purchase and you made your purchase via credit card or Paypal.  (Note that this does not apply to those subscriptions purchased through iTunes.  See next paragraph).

If you purchased your Nuryl subscription through the mobile app via iTunes, you will need to contact them in order to get a refund.  This is because they have a separate system for billing and refunds as they are the payment processor and due to their strict customer privacy rules, they do not allow third-party companies to access customer financial information.  Apple also has their own applicable payment policies which may also not provide for refunds.  Please contact Apple iTunes Customer Support directly at
