Musical intelligence consists of  the capability to recognize and compose musical pitches, tones, and rhythms. (Auditory functions are required for a person to develop this intelligence in relation to pitch and tone, but it is not needed for the knowledge of rhythm.)


It shows in people who:

  • find it easy to move or clap to a beat
  • find it easy to remember the lyrics of a song
  • enjoy remembering things in the form of a rhyme
  • focus in on noise and sounds
  • enjoy or have an interest in playing an instrument
  • enjoy musicals rather than dramas
  • enjoy many types of music
  • easily pick up on patterns
