The relationship between children’s musical development and language acquisition challenges for early education
Languages of publication
This paper aims to present the views (supported by the latest scientific research) on the relationship between an individual’s musical development and language acquisition. This paper also describes the challenges that experts in early education must face. The analysis of the relationship between musical development and language acquisition begins with the discussion (based primarily on the works by John A. Slobody, Aniruddh Patel, and Edwin E. Gordon) on what is similar and what is different where music and language are concerned. Further, models of both musical and language development (by Anthony Brandt, Molly Gebrian and L. Robert Slevc) as well as children’s early acquisition of both music and language are all described. Sharing the view that the two processes may be regarded as parallel, i.e. that of children’s musical development and that of their first language acquisition, and taking into consideration that the processes differ, the present author addresses the related challenges for the early education and indicates the concept of social constructivism (by L.S. Vygotsky) as the most relevant paradigm for the language and musical education.
