Musical parenting in early childhood music education
a case of study
Keywords:Reasons, Perceived benefits, Parents, Early childhood music education, Musical interaction at home
The way that parents support their children´s musical experiences are influenced by the social and cultural context. It is known that the frecuency and the kind of stumuli that is received by the children under two years is key for their further development. The main goal of this study was to explore the beliefs and reasons that push parents to enroll their children in early childhood music classes, and the possible relationships of these motivations and beliefs to the parent-child musical interactions at home. The results showed that the main reason why parents decided to support their children´s musical education was the perceived benefits that music could bring to their children. Additionally, this positive point of view it seems to be related to the frecuency that these parents and children engage in musical interactions.
