Bond, Vanessa L.
Update: Applications of Research in Music Education, v31 n1 p34-43 Nov 2012
In this review of literature, the author explored the representation of music in early childhood education researcher and practitioner journal articles. Thirty-eight pertinent journal articles were identified in a keyword search for "music" in eight journals. The search was limited to a 5-year period, 2005-2010. Article summaries were categorized into seven themes: extramusical benefits, music strategies, musical parenting, musical practices at home, musical lives of children, musical practices at school, and integration. The majority of articles reviewed addressed extramusical benefits of music instruction in early childhood classrooms. Implications of the literature review are discussed and suggestions for adding to this literature are shared.
