This investigation studies the capacity of the BAPNE (Biomechanics, Anthropology, Psychology, Neurology and Ethnomusicology.) method to develop socioemotional learning (SEL) in terms of all its socioemotional and cognitive aspects, as well as its influence on a positive school environment for all-round and academic development. We first look over the need for the implementation of SEL programmes, proving how socioemotional processes can have a profound effect on one’s ability to learn, at both an academic and personal/social level. We go on to look at the lack of SEL programmes that use music in their work, and concretely body percussion. We review all the components needed in a well-designed SEL programme and link these components to those of the BAPNE Method so as to show how activities based on the BAPNE Method can lead to development of SEL abilities and a positive school environment. Lastly, we look back over results, set out some essential factors for its correct implementation and we propose research aims to evaluate the results of interventions.
