The Development of a Planned Program for Teaching Musicianship in the High School Choral Class. Final Report.
This project was based on the belief that the primary aim of the high school choral class, as well as all music classes, should be to develop musicianship (musicality)--an ability to respond to the expressively organized tonal-rhythmic patterns of music. The main purpose of the project was to build a structured program for high school students which would focus on building musicianship and which could be integrated with the study, rehearsal, and performance of the choral score. The principal product was a 2-year, two-volume instructional program entitled "Choral Musicianship," dealing with both the development of concepts and skills related to pitch, rhythm, texture, and form and the characteristic uses of the structural elements in choral music of major historical periods. A pilot program, with 361 experimental subjects in five high school classes, will be completed and evaluated after the date of this report. (The appendices include sample lessons and an outline of the content of the instructional program.) (Author/JS)
