The Perceptions of Non Music Staff and Senior Management of the Impact of the Implementation of the Musical Futures Approach on the Whole School
Hallam, Susan; Creech, Andrea; McQueen, Hilary
British Journal of Music Education, v33 n2 p133-157 Jul 2016
This research aimed to provide an account of the impact of the Musical Futures approach on the wider school community in Musical Futures "Champion Schools". Questionnaires were completed by 344 non-music teachers. Interviews were undertaken with members of senior management teams. The majority of staff indicated that Musical Futures had had a positive impact on student motivation, well-being, self-esteem and confidence and had encouraged students to work together. There was less agreement that it had improved student concentration, organisation and students' attitudes towards learning and academic progression. The interviews provided deeper insights into the issues relating to implementation.
