Musical Intelligence

Musical Intelligence

Hi! I’m Musical Matt. People who exhibit a strong inclination to musical intelligence embody the definite pitch, rhythm, and timbre aspects of music. They love to listen to music, and they love to create (on different levels) music. They usually have strong emotional reactions to certain music as well. 

How I Learn Best


When teaching me, your objectives should be to incorporate music, environmental sounds, and rhythms, sing, rap, listen, and play instruments.

I want to . . .

  • Rap
  • Create music
  • Learn facts set to music
  • Make rhythms
  • Listen to music
  • Hear mood music (background)

I like these tools:

  • CD player/CDs/mp3s
  • Rhythm instruments
  • Musical (melody) instruments
  • Music software

Use these techniques to assess my learning:

  • Collecting music from time period being studied
  • Creating a song or rhythm for a set of facts
  • Choosing music to depict characters, characteristics, movement
