Music and Movement – Indispensable Dualism for an Efficient Musical Education
Music and movement are essential components of human existence since the dawn of time. In childhood it is important to join the two experiential dimensions since this juxtaposition responds to basic needs, natural characteristics of the developmental stage of human personality. This research used the methodology of the psychological and pedagogical experiment and illustrated that cognition and the musical game are closely correlated in terms of learning English. The result was improvement of the linguistic performance in terms of higher level vocabulary acquisition and pronunciation obtained by a test group when compared to the control group.
