Abstract

In this study the relationship between skills to distinguish musical variables and phonological awareness was studied in children between six and eight years of age. Previous studies in English report a connection between these skills; however, no studies of this kind have been done in Spanish. The results of this study indicate that this relationship does not exist in Spanish. This difference relates to the orthographic characteristics of these languages (opaque vs. transparent), and the implications of these results for reading learning are discussed.
