Abstract

Does playing music during physical education class increase physical activity levels? The purpose of this study was to monitor moderate to vigorous physical activity “MVPA” levels with and without music playing. If music shows to increase activity levels in physical education classes, it could lead to significant increases in planning lessons centered on or around musical activities. Sixteen students participated in this study at a middle school located in Oregon. Data was recorded 30 minutes a day, for 5 days via MVPA logs and surveys. Initial findings show an average of a 10% increase in physical activity levels with music.
