Abstract

The aim of this experiment was to determine whether eight weeks of musical training based on pitch processing could help eight-year-old children detect pitch changes in language. Results show that a relatively short exposure (eight weeks) to pitch processing in music exerts some influence on pitch processing in language. Therefore, these results are in line with the hypothesis that common processes may underlie pitch processing in language and in music.
