Ways to train and to aid the mentally deficient child to reach his maximum potential are now important problems that must be answered, for this atypical child is finding an increased acceptance into this world of the normal. The belief that all children should have guided and creative musical experience and that the mentally deficient child should be considered as a child first initiated this study. This thesis is a report of the work of the investigator and of the observations and findings which developed out of the project.
