Question description

The Effects of Music

You are friends with a family who has a 5-year-old son named James.  James loves coming to school, and gets along well with other children. He has a positive attitude about learning and is persistent when facing challenges. His favorite thing about school is music time.  He loves to sing and dance.  During center time, he plays with instruments and listens to music on head phones.  His school also has a music teacher, and James is learning how to play the piano.  He was recently diagnosed with a learning disability and his cognitive and language development appears delayed.  His parents want to put him in an academically focused program that does not include music education. They feel that this type of experience does not address his special learning needs and that more time must be spent on academics in order to bring him up to grade level. What advice do you give James parents?  In your answer, discuss developmental milestones for this age group and cite research regarding the effect of music education and experience on the cognitive development of young children.
