    Reception

    Film historian Clive Hirschhorn describes Music in My Heart as "a lightweight Irving Starr production" with "serviceable words and music" and "unremarkable direction".

    Biographer Barbara Leaming characterized the film as one of the "dreadful mistakes" Columbia Pictures made with Rita Hayworth as the studio tried to figure out how to use her to advantage. Music in My Heart was one of five pictures Hayworth appeared in that year, none of which caught on with the public.

    Reviewing the 2004 DVD release, Turner Classic Movies called Music in My Heart "a fun, charming, and unpretentious little musical which illustrates very well what an ordinary Hollywood entertainment of 1940 was like. … In the end, it's Martin's voice and Hayworth's overall presence which makes this a nice little winner, though Eric Blore, Alan Mowbray and George Tobias provide solid support as always."
