This study aims to determine the effectiveness of Electronic Dance Music as a learning component in helping grade 10 auditory learners in their cognitive development. This study analyses the Mozart effect: the sound theory to auditory learners. The idea is to attest to the effectiveness of Mozart's effect: in enhancing the cognitive development of grade 10 auditory learners. This study used Paired T-test to compare the effectiveness of using between respondents with EDM or without EDM. Hence, the researchers figured out that electronic dance music applies to auditory learners while answering any test. The cognitive effects of electronic dance music on auditory learners improved their cognitive aspects of learning. The researchers will provide links about electronic dance music for the teachers to play the downloaded music for activities. The EDM will be played during classroom activities to enhance students' performance and skills for auditory learners.
