The child-study movement was a late-nineteenth- and early twentieth-century educational fashion whose impetus came from the influences of Darwin's Origin of Species (1859) and from the advent of empirical psychology in the 1860s and 1870s. Child-study leaders sought to reform the public schools, calling for widespread and "scientific" observation and study of children. Music educators adopted some child-study principles, incorporating them in certain vocal music series and music appreciation textbooks.
