Abstract: Objective: To review literature devoted to musical development in children from infancy to age 7 years. Method: Approximately 20 articles (reviews, controlled studies, and longitudinal studies) were reviewed. Parallels are drawn between musical development and speech development. Results: In addition to other lines of development (moral, cognitive, motor, etc.), there is clear evidence that a musical developmental pathway exists. Conclusion: Little is taught in training programs about musical development in children. As the children's musical industry grows, child care experts should be expected to answer questions posed by parents and educators about the impact of music on children at various ages. Future research could be directed at music and its impact on various states of illness, for example, autism and depression.
