Abstract

In this study I have explored how childhood trauma affects the learning and development of students in the elementary music classroom. After completing a literature review and interviewing experts in this field, I discovered that music may be one subject that can help students experiencing trauma. In this study, I have presented my findings and offered suggestions on how music teachers might positively influence students who might otherwise fail to be successful in a school setting. I conclude by offering suggestions for future research to be conducted in this area.
