IQ and Musical Intelligence

Musical Intelligence or Rhythmic Intelligence is the natural love of and appreciation for music. You have a keen ear for sounds, tones, music and rhythm and often have a melody playing in your head. You learn best in a classroom atmosphere and often use music and rhyme to memorize important things. You learn best by auditory methods.

Musical intelligence is much more than having an aptitude for or liking music. It includes the natural ability to be creative with patterns of sound, rhythm and rhymes. You may have the desire or ability to play one or more instruments, make up songs or compose music. Timbre, melody, pitch, rhythm and the emotional aspect of music are important to you. Music is an integral part of your everyday life.

No matter your level of musical intelligence, you can develop it and expand your horizons. Doing so can help you with memory, relaxation, not to mention just the pure pleasure of the enjoyment of music. Here are some options you may want to consider:

Studying the lives of the greats mentioned above and others that have shown an aptitude for musical intelligence is a great way to build your musical muscles. Make a video file of your favorite artists and try ones you’re not familiar with. Listen to it often. Research them, their lives, motivations and what kept them going.

Do you love music or do you often have a song running through your mind? Consider a career with music. Not all jobs in the music industry require musical talent like singing or playing an instrument. Careers to consider are music journalist, music therapist, talent scout, concert promoter or a sound/recording engineer.
