AbstractWith this research we evaluated the effect that listening to different musical intervals has on the brain waves of people and the improvement of their willingness and ability to learn, measured in terms of increased academic achievements. The benefits of this treatment will be assessed by performing a comparison between the traditional method of studying a complex subject of the degree in Medicine and the pedagogical method mediated by music developed on purpose for the experiment. The first stage is the search and identification of musical intervals that cause brain changes that facilitate learning. For this purpose, we used electroencephalographic measuring instruments to a group of 50 medical students. In a second stage, we outlined these musical intervals and composed several pieces of music, which lyrics were based on the content of a subject that has traditionally shown poor results in previous evaluations, in this case in the area of Immunology. Subsequently, the evaluation results for both groups were analyzed and compared. We found out that there were significant differences between the group that studied with music and lyrics, when comparing it to the group that did not receive any musical intervention (p<0.001), in terms of academic achievement. These results let us propose and structure a technically developed teaching method mediated by music, that uses music for education, which when applied to different areas of knowledge, especially those characterized by hard learning, will become an aid to teachers and students.
