In recent years, civil talent classes are prevalent domestically, many parents send their children to learn additional skills as well as experiences. Will it achieve learning effects for children to attend talent classes? However, during preschool education period, children are like a piece of white paper; how teachers build abundant situation for children to learn happily is an important factor. Meanwhile, course planning would also influence children’s early experiences. Currently, nursery rhyme and rhythm serve as the core of musical activity in preschool education courses; and in the aspect of children learning, how teachers employ musical activity to inspire children’s nerve system development and attention performance.
This study aims to explore the impact Orff Musical Activity would have on children’s attention and brain waves. Research method, “Nonequivalent Pretest-Posttest Design” of “Quasi-Experimental Design” is adopted in this study and two children at the age of 5-6 study in top class and middle class in a kindergarten of Kaohsiung City, Taiwan respectively serve as study object. Research tool employed are a questionnaire of music teaching application in Kaohsiung City for initial investigation, Biofeedback Device and Computer Test Software for Attention Performance. The result of questionnaire survey shows that Orff Teaching Method takes the most part in kindergartens and nursery schools of Kaohsiung City which supports this study to explore thoroughly the confirmation of study. The experiment period is ten weeks; the 1st posttest was performed after four-week employment and the 2nd posttest was performed after ten-week employment. Single Factor Variant Analysis is applied as data analysis method to analyze whether discrepancy existed between the pretest and posttest score of each group, and the prominent level is fixed at α=.05.
The study result displays that there’s no prominent discrepancy between the reaction of Brain α Wave, Brain θWave, Brain β1 Wave and Brain β2 Wave of experimental and control group children in top class; the 1st Brain θ Wave posttest reaction of experimental group in middle class is higher than those in control group obviously. But, there’s no remarkable discrepancy between children of experimental group and control group upon Brain α Wave, Brain β1 Wave and Brain β2 Wave. In item Flexibility of Attention Test Software, children in experimental group of middle class and top class excelled those in control group. However, there’s no noticeable discrepancy between children in experimental group and those in control group of middle class and top class upon the reaction seconds of item Alertness of Attention Test Software.
