The educational system has been revolutionized and changed the style of learning, teaching, communication and providing the information. There is need to use innovative methods in teaching children with mental retardation. The experiment across ten participants assessed the efficacy of music in teaching concept of direction to children with mental retardation at primary level. Students were divided in two groups: experimental and control. While experimental group receive instruction through rhymes with musical components, other group received instruction in a traditional way.
