Description: This poster discusses research on developing musical literacy in children. Musical education is important to the full development of a knowledgeable human being. However, the problem occurs in the beginning stages of child development because we are unable to take advantage of the ideal time for learning because the child is not fully developed to sing. This causes a lack of vocal and aural development skills necessary for a skilled musician. A curriculum of instruction is needed to help these young children reach their fullest potential in all facets of music literacy: aural, vocal, and rhythmic.
