Summary/Abstract: The article makes an attempt at theoretical research of the issue of musical intelligence. The starting point of the research, from the perspective of general psychology, is the views of Eisenk and Gardener about intelligence. In musical psychology aspect, the issue is discussed on the basis of research made by p. Michel, the standardized test of musical intelligence constructed by Wing, the Gardener‘s theory of multiple intelligence. The article marks some issues as “Is the development of musical intelligence possible in the system for mass musical education?”, or “musical intelligence and creativity”. Criteria defining musical intelligence are also discussed on the basis of a general system of criteria, worked out by Gardener. “A clearly discernible core logical operation or a set of operations” and “possibility for symbol definition” are two of the criteria that play a key part in discussing the issue of musical intelligence. Some ideas for paedagogic work are proposed in the text. On the basis of paedagogic observations and practice the conclusionis drawn that the impact on musical intellectual abilities of children is a prerequisite not only for their musical but also their general development. Transferring knowledge from one field to another, connected with establishing sustainable intellectual models and algorithms in the child’s consciousness for his future social fulfillment is one of the major tendencies in education, and probably musical intelligence itself is one of the ways for paedagogic interaction in that respect.
