AN ANALYSIS OF STUDENT ATTITUDES TOWARDS CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN MUSIC. SUMMARY REPORT.
HORNYAK, R. ROBERT
A SUMMARY WAS PREPARED OF A TWO-PART STUDY OF THE AESTHETIC ATTITUDES OF STUDENTS TOWARDS CONTEMPORARY MUSIC. PART 1 SURVEYED THE AUDIENCES AT SIX CONCERTS TO FIND A PATTERN OF ATTITUDES BY (1) STYLISTIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MUSIC, (2) AGE AND EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT OF THE AUDITORS, (3) MUSICAL BACKGROUND, AND (4) SOCIOECONOMIC BACKGROUND. PART 2 DREW UPON A SAMPLE OF 1,300 STUDENTS FROM GRADES 4 THROUGH 12. AN EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN WAS ESTABLISHED IN THIS PHASE WHICH PERMITTED ANALYSIS OF THE TRAINING RECEIVED PRIOR TO ATTENDING A SPECIAL CONCERT BY A WOODWIND QUINTET. A RATING SCALE, DESIGNED TO REFLECT PREFERENCE ATTITUDES, WAS CONSTRUCTED AND ADMINISTERED. OTHER INSTRUMENTS WERE DEVELOPED, INCLUDING A QUESTIONNAIRE FOR CLASSIFICATION OF THE VARIABLES. AN OVERALL CONCLUSION INDICATED THAT AESTHETIC ATTITUDES ARE DEVELOPED, IN PART, AS A RESULT OF THE NATURE AND EXTENT OF THE AUDITOR'S UNDERSTANDING OF THE MUSICAL ART. THE FINAL REPORT WAS ASSIGNED ACCESSION NUMBER ED 010 413. (RS)
