The Effects of Vocalization on Achievement Levels of Selected Performance Areas Found in Elementary Instrumental Bands.
Lee, Stephen R.
This study is of a comparison of two instructional methods used in elementary band settings. This study examined the effect of tonal patterned instruction with vocalization techniques.The musical concepts under examination include articulation and phrasing. In addition, an effort was made to determine the extent to which vocalization practices are used in West Virginia, and the methods which may or may not be employed. The study compared the performance levels of fifth-grade students after they had engaged in vocalized tonal patterned instruction to performance levels after traditional note-to-note instruction. The musical concepts under examination include articulation and phrasing. Results from the study support the use of vocalization in an instrumental setting. Analysis of data show significant correlation of vocalization practices employed in this study to achievement levels in articulation and phrasing. Results suggest the use of vocalization with tonal patterned instruction over traditional methods. (Contains 43 references and 12 appendixes.) (EH)
