Abstract

The theory behind music-based English instruction is that it may help students retain new vocabulary words and grammar structures more easily. New words, grammar, and pronunciation may all be taught and reinforced using musical means. Music may also be used to create a lively and engaging classroom setting. Using music in the English classroom has several benefits. The fact that it may be a fun and inspiring approach to learn the language is a major perk. A person's ability to listen and express themselves verbally may be honed via musical practice.
