The Effects of Music Instruction on Learning in the Montessori Classroom
Harris, Maureen
Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, v20 n3 p24-31 2008
The value of music in educating the young child is not being recognized, particularly in the area of mathematics. Despite the amount of literature available regarding the effects of music instruction on academic achievement, little has been written on different Montessori music pedagogies and their effects on students' math scores. This article presents the findings of a study that examined the difference in math achievement scores between Montessori students who received traditional Montessori instruction and students who received music enriched Montessori instruction. Results revealed that students who received music-enriched Montessori instruction had higher levels of mathematics achievement than students who received traditional Montessori instruction. (Contains 3 tables.)
