Description

With the growing body of evidence suggesting the link between music and intelligence, there is a parallel dialogue about music in our schools and in programs of childhood development. Influenced by the research found on the importance of music in elementary schools, this research study illustrates how integration of music in daily curriculum at the elementary level enhances students learning. Data was collected from a variety of literary sources and interviews with educational professionals. Results suggest that music, as a part of education, allows children to flourish in their natural curiosity within a stimulating environment and provides concrete evidence supporting the further utilization of music in the classroom.
