ABSTRACT

This study examined the effects of music therapy interventions to establish evidence- based practice for students with disabilities. The study employed a meta-analysis, which allows not only to synthesize the effect sizes of accumulated data but also to draw substantive implications for the research field. A total of 23 studies with 118 effect sizes were analyzed by using HLM with a two-level model. The results demonstrate very large effects of music therapy interventions on students with disabilities (overall ES = 1.072). These promising results were consistently observed across all variables, with no significance except grade level and music therapy type. The study quantitatively examined music therapy for students with disabilities to facilitate provision of evidence-based practice through a related service in the field of special education in South Korea. Limitations of this study and implications for further research are also discussed.
