Report of a Survey (1982) Status of Elementary School Music Programs.
Findings of a 1983 survey of York Region (Ontario) elementary school music programs are presented. Staff committees from a sample of 28 schools responded to questions concerning music qualifications, budgets, music instruction timetables, student participation rates, program achievements, and useful resources. Among the findings were the following: a positive correlation between low music education budgets and complaints about the quality of music facilities; an average 80 minutes per week spent on music instruction; and an expressed need for confidence building, methods awareness, and leadership training workshops. Appendices contain statistical data and a sample of the survey form. (LP)
