Development of a Quantitative Methodology to Analyze the Growth of Recognition of Musical Elements in Early Childhood from a Viewpoint of Change of Body Movement
AUTHOR : Mina Sano
INFORMATION : page. 61~80 / 2018 Vol.12 No.1
It is widely viewed that music induced body movement of early childhood children changes reflecting
progress of development stage of recognition of musical elements. The author had devised
four-phased Music Expression Bringing-up (MEB) program to enhance music recognition of children
and devised associated Music Test to evaluate recognition achievements based on respective
development phase. As such framework successfully showed development of recognition, the author
tried to introduce additional quantitative measure which observes body movements on each
development phase utilizing 3D motion capture. In motion capture study, 3-year-old (n=28),
4-year-old (n=25), and 5-year-old (n=31) children participated in the every phase’s activity of MEB
program. Applying such movement results of 4 and 5-year-old children at multiple development
phases with MEB program results of relevant phases, statistically significant relationship was attained
in ANOVA and relationship was depicted in Circular Affect. Results indicated that usage of 3D
motion capture has consistent outcome with MEB program and body parts movements had the
characteristic change of element in musical expression, especially, in the right hand. Combining 3D
motion capture can identify development signals in movement of body parts and support to
understand development achievements of children.

Call for Papers: Asia-Pacific Journal of Research in Early Childhood Education (APJRECE)
Special Issue Deadline: January 15, 2016
Asia-Pacific Journal of Research in Early Childhood Education (APJRECE) is an official publication of the Pacific Early Childhood Education Research Association (PECERA) that is dedicated to disseminating and supporting research in early childhood education within the Pacific area.
APJRECE is released three times a year in January, May, and September. In 2016, the second issue of Volume 10 will be a special issue. The topic for the special issue is “Power of Play in Young Children’s Growth and Learning”. The Guest Editor for the special issue is Dr. Wonyoung Rhee, Professor Emerita at Chung-Ang University, Korea.
We are seeking reports of current research on this topic, papers that address issues in the application of play research, and papers that review a specific research area of young children’s play and are especially informative about studies needed to fill knowledge gaps. The manuscripts for the special issue should be submitted online by January 15, 2016, following the guidelines described on the journal website. Please visit the homepage of Asia-Pacific Journal of Research in Early Childhood Education (www.apjrece.com,www.pecerajournal.com), and you will find not only full details on aims and scope, editorial policy, and paper submission but the orange colored button, named Manuscript Management System of APJRECE, for paper submission.
We hope you will seriously consider APJRECE for your scholarship.
