The Effects of Music Instruction on Emergent Literacy Capacities among Preschool Children: A Literature Review
Bolduc, Jonathan
Early Childhood Research & Practice, v10 n1 Spr 2008
This article presents a literature review of pertinent research that has dealt with the relationships between music education and emergent literacy in preschoolers during the past 20 years. In total, 13 correlational and quasi-experimental studies were summarized and compared. These interdisciplinary studies have demonstrated that music education may effectively contribute to young children's awakening to reading and writing, whether or not learning difficulties are an issue. (Contains 8 notes.)
