Abstract

[Summary]: This paper provides a preliminary report of a small-scale research examining the effectiveness of a series of
Music Appreciation segments of “Pre-school: Learn to Fly”—a locally designed and produced early childhood TV
program in Hong Kong. Four aspects of young children’s musical development were studied: 1) musical
exposure; 2) attention span; 3) response to music; and 4) musical memory. The findings enrich local
understanding of early childhood music education and media, and provide more information for the production of
the next series from late 2004.
