The paper states that learning styles are just as different as the individuals who utilize the various styles of learning. Taking these into consideration in the use of instructional strategies in music, education has long-term payoffs for the student in relation to educational outcomes. The paper examines the possibilities of using the Dunn and Dunn Model to teach music, specifically eurhythmics, a method of learning and experiencing music through movement. The paper notes that music instruction and the learning derived from instruction are referred to as declarative knowledge, while practical knowledge is the ability of the individuals to use sensory motor and cognitive skills.

Summary and Conclusion

From the Paper:

"There are both intrinsic and extrinsic rewards that motivate students meaning that they are motivated 'internally' or 'externally' by the promise of the reward. The learning environment is a 'key' aspect of the motivation of the student in learning and the work of Hallam states that the learning environment is the combined: "...complex interactions between the characteristics of the individual and the environment that they find themselves. [And that it also] refers to the cultural climate at the time, the place of learning, and the people who are in it, including teachers, family and peers."
