DEVELOPMENT AND TRAIL OF A BASIC COURSE IN MUSIC THEORY USING SELF- INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS TO SUPPLEMENT TRAINING RECEIVED IN HIGH SCHOOL PERFORMANCE GROUPS. FINAL REPORT.
ANDREWS, J. AUSTIN
IN AN EXPERIMENT TO TEST EFFECTS OF A PROGRAMED TEXT AND RECORDS IN MUSIC INSTRUCTION, A PRE-TEST ON WRITTEN THEORY AND AURAL RESPONSE GIVEN TO 957 STUDENTS IN NINE SCHOOLS IN AN EXPERIMENTAL AND A MATCHED CONTROL GROUP SHOWED SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES FOR THOSE WITH PREVIOUS PRIVATE MUSIC STUDY AND HIGHER GRADE POINT AVERAGES, BUT NO DIFFERENCES ON TEST SCORES AND GRADE LEVEL. ON THE SAME TEST GIVEN AFTER THE EIGHT-MONTH COURSE, THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP SHOWED SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT OVER THE CONTROL GROUP IN COMPARISON OF PRE- AND POST-TEST SCORES, ALTHOUGH BOTH GROUPS, CONSIDERED SEPARATELY, IMPROVED SIGNIFICANTLY, AND ALL POST-TEST SCORES WERE SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN ALL PRE-TEST SCORES. ACHIEVEMENT WAS NOT RELATED TO GRADE LEVEL, AND THOSE IN THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP WITH PREVIOUS PRIVATE LESSONS ACHIEVED SIGNIFICANTLY MORE (A RELATIONSHIP POSSIBLY EXPLAINED BY GENERAL INTEREST IN MUSIC). ALL NINE TEACHERS RESPONDED FAVORABLY TO THE MATERIALS, BUT THEY CRITICIZED (ON A QUESTIONNAIRE) THE OCCASIONAL DIFFICULTY AND VOLUME OF THE MATERIAL. STUDENT ATTITUDES WERE GENERALLY NEGATIVE, ACCORDING TO THE TEACHERS. (LH)
