Beliefs of Pre-Service and In-Service Early Years/Elementary Classroom Teachers regarding Useful Music Course Topics.
Morin, Francine L.
This paper reports on a study to explore the perspectives of authorities, pre-service and in-service teachers regarding appropriate music course content for non-specialists. Data were obtained from conducting a content analysis of 20 textbooks and course outlines, surveying 250 education students labeled "early years" or "elementary," and interviewing 413 classroom teachers labeled "primary" or "intermediate." Perhaps the most notable outcome of the study was that many of the music topics identified as useful by pre-service and in-service teachers would not likely be addressed in significant ways by music teacher educators. Data suggest that music courses for the classroom teacher should target the correlation of music with other knowledge domains. Contains 11 references and 8 figures. (EH)
