A Study of the Relationship between Selected Non-music Major Eastern Kentucky University Students' High School Musical-Athletic Backgrounds and their Knowledge, Preferences, and Opinions of the Eastern Kentucky University Marching Band.
Taylor, Thomas C.
This study measures the knowledge, preferences, and opinions of Eastern Kentucky University football fans about their marching band and relates high school musical and/or athletic experience to those preferences. Data was obtained from a questionnaire distributed to a sample of the student body. The results indicate that people with musical backgrounds felt that the halftime show was more important than people with athletic backgrounds. People with musical and/or athletic backgrounds through that marching style was more important than musical style. Most people preferred precision drill to pageantry shows; popular music, jazz, and Broadway show tunes to marches, rock, and serious music; and felt that majorettes and flag carriers added to a halftime show, but did not claim to watch the flag routines.
