About the author (2009)

Statistical results of my case study research have suggested that pairing music and linguistic intelligences in the college classroom improves students’ grades and abilities to compose theses statements for research papers in courses that emphasize reading and writing skills (DiEdwardo 2004). Grounded in educational theories, as well as offering practical applications, pairing two intelligences advances student potential. Based on multiple intelligence theory (Gardner 1993), the Mozart Effect (Campbell 2001), and participation as precedent to learning (Bateson 1975), the conclusion may be drawn that integrating music into elementary, middle school, high school, advanced placement, and college linguistic classrooms, as well as into virtual classrooms enables students to learn to read and write (DiEdwardo 2004).
