black walnut Children's Music and Pre-Literacy (27) Children's Music and Pre-Literacy 09 May 08

I am studying the impact of early childhood music on pre-literacy and reading skills. The music includes traditional and newly composed songs and tunes, as well as spoken rhymes (songs with out tunes). Movement is an important component of the whole experience as well.

I am wondering if anyone here has expertise in this particular field of study, or if anyone has specific resource ideas to share. I am not thinking so much of the individual songs and rhymes themselves, but of the actual study of the impact of music on configuring the brain to enhance speech and reading skills.
