TITLE I PROJECTS AND OTHERS, ESPANOLA VALLEY PILOT PROGRAM RESEARCH. 1966-67 PRELIMINARY REPORT.
COLLIER, NINA PERERA
THIS IS A COMPREHENSIVE REPORT OF THE ACTIVITIES OF YOUTH CONCERTS OF NEW MEXICO, INC., IN BRINGING ARTISTS TO ELEMENTARY AND HIGH SCHOOL CHILDREN IN TOWNS AND VILLAGES THAT HAVE HAD LITTLE OR NO CONTACT WITH LIVE PERFORMERS. A PILOT STUDY WAS CONDUCTED TO COMPARE THE INSTRUMENTAL AND VOCAL ENSEMBLES' EFFECTS ON STUDENTS IN URBAN SCHOOLS WITH STUDENTS IN RURAL SCHOOLS. OBSERVATIONS, QUESTIONNAIRES, PRE- AND POST-TESTING, AND TAPE RECORDED INTERVIEWS LED TO CONCLUSIONS THAT (1) LIVE MUSICAL PERFORMANCES CAN PRODUCE SPECIFIC FACTUAL OUTCOMES IN TERMS OF LEARNING ABOUT MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, HOW THEY ARE PLAYED, AND FACTS RELATED TO THE PERFORMERS, (2) POSITIVE ATTITUDINAL OUTCOMES (ATTENDING FUTURE PERFORMANCES, POSSIBLE FUTURE STUDY ON THE INSTRUMENT PLAYED, AND HEARING SIMILAR MUSIC AGAIN) ACCRUE FROM LIVE PERFORMANCES, AND (3) LIVE MUSICAL PERFORMANCES HAVE A REAL POTENTIAL IN ACCULTURATION AND SELF-CONCEPT IMPROVEMENT OF CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED AND CULTURALLY ISOLATED CHILDREN. YOUTH CONCERTS OF NEW MEXICO REPORTED 165 MUSICAL EVENTS PRESENTED TO 42,127 STUDENTS IN 17 SCHOOL DISTRICTS. THE 13 PERFORMING UNITS INCLUDED SMALL INSTRUMENTAL GROUPS, DANCE SOLOISTS, AND VOICE SOLOISTS AND ENSEMBLES, APPENDIXES PRESENT DESCRIPTIONS OF PERFORMANCES, PROGRAMS, TEACHER GUIDES, AND FOLLOWUP TESTS.
