A Study in Comparative Music Education: An Evaluation of Techniques Employed in Elementary and Secondary Schools in Selected Foreign Countries. Final Report.
Cykler, Edmund A.
This study consisted of observations of and conferences on elementary and secondary school music teaching in 10 foreign countries, and the collection of data via video-tape recordings for the evaluation of techniques employed by both classroom teachers and music specialists. With three exceptions, all observations and recordings were made under normal classroom conditions during regular instructional periods, and covered classes from nursery school through secondary school. Data collected represents both traditional and experimental approaches to music teaching. It is concluded that although methods are important, it is the skill and enthusiasm of the individual teacher plus the use of a method that results in a successful musical experience for the pupil.
