v Re How Music Can Be Used in the Classroom Music can be incorporated in the classroom at 3 levels: High Teach educational content (content songs).

Enhance educational content. (Use music to help students understand, feel, and appreciate educational content.) Set tone/atmosphere. (Create an atmosphere conducive to effective teaching/learning: music to prepare, music to focus & concentrate.) Low Music Makes Learning Content Easier

Music facilitates absorbing vocabulary and reading material quickly. When information is put to rhythm and rhyme, these musical elements provide a hook (cue) for recall. Music Makes Learning Content Easier Songs, chants, poems, and raps will improve memory of content facts and details through rhyme, rhythm, and melody. Teaching these musical forms to students is a

very effective memory tool. You could even have students write their own song or poem! What Is Learning? Learning involves chemically encoding new material into the brain. Memories are stored in neurons, billions of cells that encode, store, and retrieve

information. Neurons form networks of connected information. Learning involves making connections between neurons. What is Learning? The way that information was stored (neural pathway), is the way that information will be retrieved. Examples:

Driving a car. Showering. How did you store the alphabet? Learning the Alphabet ABC Song at Wikipedia Students come to school already knowing Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. Notice how closely the ABC song

resembles that song. Learning the Alphabet ZYXWVUTSRQPONML KJIHGFEDCBA Lets learn the alphabet backwards! Content Songs Content songs help teach educational material to students.
