The aim of this study was to explore children’s lived experiences of musical activities in the home
through parent reports, given the acknowledged body of wisdom that the home learning
environment has a significant impact on children’s later social and academic achievement and overall wellbeing (Sylva, 2004). The researcher was interested in parents’ perceptions of what constituted musical activity and what kinds of activities children participated in during solitary play, play with siblings and peers and shared musical activities with adults. This is because music and
musicality have been shown to promote children’s pro-social skills, physical development and parent-child relationships (Williams et al., 2015).
