Abstract:
This thesis describes a research project undertaken in a school located in a deprive neighbourhood of Bogota, the capital of Colombia. The project investigated the effects of musical experiences on social and musical development by means of a mixed methods approach involving children, parents, and teachers. The project comprises three studies: an experimental intervention study; and interviews study and a psycho-musicological study. The experimental intervention study was carried out with two groups of 52 children between six to eight years old; the experimental group followed a music programme of a singing workshop in which children made musical improvisations. The interviews study carried out interviews with the children, parent and teacher conducted during the intervention programme. The psycho-musicological case study analyse the musical improvisations of six of the children. Data analysis includes the statistical analysis of the children‘s tests (Harter´s Perceived Competence Scale for Children, 1999)and Self-Efficacy in Music, Hargreaves et al., 2002), qualitative analysis of parents‘, children‘s and teachers‘ interviews and a psycho-musicological analysis of children‘s musical improvisations (Ockelford, 2007) and its relation to children‘s cognitive and socio-emotional development. The principal findings are that the cognitive component of the self-identity of children who undertook the music programme increased. This appears to be related to the children‘s cultural environment, their parents‘ attitudes, and the idiosyncratic ways in which they use music to express themselves. Music appears to help them to be resilient, to manage the challenges they face, and to adapt to changes in the environment.
