LINGER, BERNARD L.
TO IMPROVE ELEMENTARY MUSIC INSTRUCTION IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS, 19 SOUTHEASTERN KENTUCKY TEACHER-AIDES ATTENDED AN INSTITUTE IN MUSIC HELD AT UNION COLLEGE (BARBOURVILLE, KENTUCKY) FOR TWO WEEKS, JUNE 19-30, 1967. FOR TWO HOURS EACH DAY THEY STUDIED THE USE OF PHONOGRAPH RECORDS, GROUP SINGING, CLASSROOM INSTRUMENTS, RHYTHMIC DANCE, AND THE RELATIONSHIP OF MUSIC TO ACOUSTICS, SOCIOLOGY, ART, AND GEOGRAPHY. THERE WERE THREE INSTRUCTORS. EACH STUDENT RECEIVED A SONGFLUTE AND INSTRUCTION BOOK, A PROGRAMED TEXTBOOK DEALING WITH MUSIC TERMINOLOGY, AND WORKSHOP SAMPLES OF PUBLISHERS' SONGBOOK SERIES. A FORMAL LETTER WAS PREPARED FOR EACH PARTICIPANT REQUESTING MATERIALS FOR HER USE IN HER SCHOOL. A CERTIFICATE OF ATTENDANCE WAS AWARDED. EACH PARTICIPANT EVALUATED THE INSTITUTE THROUGH A QUESTIONNAIRE COMPLETED AND RETURNED BY MAIL. ALL REQUESTED THAT THE INSTITUTE BE REPEATED, PREFERABLY DURING THE SUMMER. NONE SAID IT WAS TOO LONG AND SEVERAL DESIRED FOLLOWUP SESSIONS DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR. THE INSTRUCTORS SUGGESTED THAT FOLLOWUP INSERVICE PROGRAMS BE HELD, THAT SIMILAR INSTITUTES FOR TEACHER-AIDES IN ART, DRAMA, AND RECREATION BE SCHEDULED, AND THAT A MUSIC INSTITUTE BE HELD FOR RECREATIONAL LEADERS IN THE APPALACHIA AREA COMMUNITY CENTERS.
