"Extra-Musical Effects" and Benefits of Programs Founded on the Kodály Philosophy
Goopy, Jason
Australian Journal of Music Education, n2 p71-78 2013
Music education is often advocated as having "extra-musical effects" contributing to the development of the whole child. The pedagogy teachers employ to deliver music programs could affect the significance of such benefits. This paper will review literature documenting how children benefit from receiving music education delivered using Kodály methodology. These benefits include literacy and numeracy skills, spatial-temporal reasoning, intelligence and social emotional development. Identifying gaps in research may pave the way for future studies and investigations.
