Music and language acquiring spots may be different in the brain yet share the same sound production. Skills to acknowledge music is beneficial to produce musical arts while the ability to recognize phonology in English leads to not only native-like pronunciation but also word-class identification and implicature. This study attempts to look at how musical sensitivity affects phonological awareness of both trained and untrained vocalists. The objects of this research are elements of music (rhythm and pitch) that reflected English phonology (rhythm and intonation). Toward two groups of trained and untrained vocalists, the instrument of evaluation which includes 46 tests in listening for each subject (music and phonology) was given. The test is to measure participants’ ability to duplicate sound based on the instruction given. Data for this study - score from both subjects - were analyzed by using variance and interpretation. From the sound production of all respondents, the problem occurs on English pronunciation as the effects of elements of rhythm and pitch in misunderstanding, accent and robotic utterance. The effect of music on untrained (x2) vocalist toward phonology (y) seems to outperform trained (x1) vocalist by more than 10 percent. However, both are able to give above 50 percent contribution on English phonology. By this, musical practice on rhythm and pitch is recommended to be conducted on English pronunciation class.
