Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperResearchpeer-review


Not only does music education develop our understanding of music, it develops our general aural perception. The greater our aural perception skills, the more effectively we can use aural information in our daily lives and workplaces. These skills can also lead to a deeper sense of aesthetic knowing and professional artistry. Such a broad developmental outcome means that music education pedagogies could be used in a diverse range of educational and professional learning fields. These concepts served as the basis for a pilot program that used music education pedagogies to enhance a nursing education program
