Morrongiello, Barbara A.; Roes, Caroline L.
Developmental Psychology, v26 n5 p814-20 Sep 1990
A sample of 48 children with and without musical training were presented with a melody of 9 notes and asked to select the line drawing that best depicted the melodic contour. Findings indicated a lengthy course of development of sensitivity to diatonic scale structure and suggested that musical training may enhance acquisition of this type of musical knowledge. (RH)
