This project is always so much fun to grade- I learn so much- and the kids do too!

With this research, we elucidate musical activities and their positive effects by investigating two important contextual elements in individuals’ development: the family as immediate environment (micro system), and culture as a more remote context (macro-context; cf. ecological system theory of human development; Bronfenbrenner, 1979 , 1986 ). Furthermore, we examine music in families as opposed to in peer groups as another important socialization context.
