The Impact of Music Education on 7-9-Year-Old Children’s Creativity in Tehran

The test results indicate that there is no significant difference between the two study groups before the intervention with respect to the mean values of seven intelligence subscales.

In other words, teaching music with Orff method over a three-month period influenced the creativity of the studied children.
