Abstract

This paper examines student reactions to the use of music in the classroom to enhance education. Students in an undergraduate course selected songs and related them to class topics. First, an overview of the use of media in education is provided. Next, human resource development and andragogy are discussed as frameworks for this study. A description of the song related assignment is given, and quantitative and qualitative results of student reactions to the assignment are presented. Results found that the music related assignment made class more interesting for students, and that it caused students to think more about class topics
