We enjoy one of the best supplier relationships with Acorn due to the professionalism & quick response times allied with an enjoyable friendly nature of all the staff. This research was supported by a grant for educational research from the Justus-Liebig-University Giessen and the graduate school “NeuroAct” of the University of Gießen and the University of Marburg. The authors would like to thank the participating kindergartens as well as all of the participants and their parents. To measure intelligence, the culture fair test (CFT1; Weiß and Osterland, 1977), which measures fluid intelligence, was employed. The test consisted of five subtests and was administered in groups that did not exceed eight children. The duration of test administration was 60 min including instructions and breaks.

- The preschoolers were trained
Because an experimental design was applied, the current results can be interpreted unequivocally in terms of an enhancing effect of the music training program on phonological awareness in preschoolers. Moreover, these results indicate that phonological awareness of large phonological units was more intensely affected by music training and phonological skills training. Thus, the overall enhancement was basically driven by the subtests that assessed phonological awareness of large phonological units. For phonological awareness of small phonological units, the treatment groups and the control group showed a similar development over the course of the experiment. This likely represents maturation and/or effects of preschool activities in kindergartens. As preschool activities and maturation affect all preschoolers regardless of the training groups, it seems obvious that all children increased in phonological awareness of small phonological units.
In both age groups, musical aptitude was correlated with phonological awareness. The authors concluded that the auditory processing mechanisms … Read More
