This study examines the musical competencies of third-year Bachelor of Culture and the Arts Education (BCAED) students at North Luzon Philippines State College. It focuses on their proficiency in reading music notes and playing the guitar, utilizing the solfeggio method for assessment. Music education’s significance in fostering musical responses, creativity, and cognitive development is emphasized. The study highlights the importance of music education, which helps in promoting musical responses and enjoyment through public participation in singing, listening, rhythmic play, and creative expression. Moreover, music education aids in developing skills such as mental development, concentration, and patience while also promoting cultural and aesthetic development. The study concludes that music education, particularly instrumental playing, helps in physical growth and coordination, and musical experience can “fine-tune” the brain’s auditory system. The study employs a pre-experimental one-shot pretest design, combining individual and group observations. A rubric is utilized to evaluate students’ performance and provide structured feedback. The 22 participants, enrolled in music subjects, are assessed through a questionnaire containing 60 items covering knowledge and technique areas.
