Increasing the Involvement of Parents in the Music Education of Fourth and Fifth Grade Students through Improved Communication.
This practicum was designed to increase the involvement of parents in the music education of fourth and fifth grade students. A delivery system was developed to provide parents with activities, resources, and materials relating to the student's music education. Parents received the materials at no cost. The author developed a brochure and monthly newsletter; recorded an audio cassette and video cassette to encourage musical activity in the family; administered a postsurvey to all participants; and prepared a handbook of musical resources for the child and parent. Analysis of the data revealed that the participants were more apt to involve themselves in their child's musical experiences when given information and materials. All parents involved in the project rated the project as beneficial to their children and conveyed the belief that parental involvement in a child's music education is important. (Author)
