The Impact of Music Theory in Early Childhood Education

Music in early childhood learning and care practices is a key component that encourages cognitive development and enhances learning abilities (Chung, 2021, p. 71). Therefore, exploring the positive effects of incorporating music theory into the early childhood education curriculum emphasizes its contribution to early childhood education. Research on the impact of music theory in early childhood education should focus on understanding musical concepts instead of learning to play instruments or songs (Svalina & Gradistanac, 2022, p. 54). Basing the research topic on the above context would easily investigate various ways a comprehensive music education encompassing theory can influence a child's academic performance, well-being, and cognitive development.

Reason for Interest

I am interested in the above research topic because it explores the broader aspects of music education. Researching the topic would explore various ways music theory can contribute to a child's cognitive development.
