Does music training play a role in learning English as a second language? The aim of this thesis is to show whether students attending a music school find learning English easier than students from a regular elementary school. Many studies show a connection between music and language, with music playing a big role in learning a language, because students are more relaxed, their anxiety levels are lower, and they enjoy the learning process. The term “musicolinguistics” is used to connect music to language, as it means that terms from language science are adapted to the musicological framework. The sample of this study consisted of 61 students, grades 7 and 8, who filled out a questionnaire based on the Likert scale. The results of the study show that there is no statistically relevant difference between music school students and regular elementary school students in how they perceive their English knowledge. Further research is needed in order to determine whether these findings are truly reliable.
