Northern Kentucky University

Abstract

Recent evidence indicates that female college students with at least six years of formal music training before the age of 12 have better recall memory for verbal material than females with no music training (Chan, Hoe, & Cheung, 1998). Huesman and Hogan (2004) confirmed and extended the facilitating effect of music training on verbal memory of males. We will report the results of our follow-up research concerning the effect of music training on working memory capacity and recall strategy.
