Abstract

The period of acquisition of musical vernacular in children, pre-adolescents, and young adults was determined. The superior memory of young adults for music in recent familiar styles suggests that acquisition of the rules of the musical vernacular also coincides with the time during adolescence. It was found that exposure to many styles of music during the early sensitive period may provide a broad basis for the appreciation of multiple musical idioms throughout life.
