The Development of Preschool Children's Musical Abilities through Specific Types of Musical Activities
Stolic, Jasmina
Research in Pedagogy, v5 n2 p31-44 2015
The goal of the conducted research was to explore how much preschool teachers value certain types of musical activities, which positively influence the development of preschool children's musical abilities. The assumption in the research was that preschool teachers would choose musical games as the most prominent activity type in their educational work, as well as consider them to be the most important type of musical activity. The research results gave completely unexpected and different results from the expected. Namely, preschool teachers use sung songs the most, and do not consider musical games the most important musical activity type. Musical games are in the fourth place on an importance list of five items.
