The purpose of this study is to determine if a music intervention in a Kindergarten classroom will result in an increase in students’ phonological awareness abilities. Five kindergarten students participated in a six-week study in which they received teacher-led, small-group interventions for 20 minutes three times a week. The students showed significant growth in segmenting, rhyming, and syllable segmentation as a result of the intervention. Music instruction was concluded to be an effective tool for delivery of phonological awareness instruction due to the relationship between music processing and language processing.
