Effects of General-Case Training, Instructions, Rehearsal, and Feedback on the Reduction of Sight-Reading Errors by Competent Musicians
Dib, Nancy Ellen; Sturmey, Peter
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v44 n3 p599-604 Fall 2011
We used general-case training, instructions, rehearsal, and feedback to teach 3 advanced flute students to improve their sight-reading skills. Training resulted in systematic decreases in note errors, rhythm errors, repetitions, and hesitations for each participant. The procedures and outcomes were socially validated through subjective evaluation by the participants and music teachers not involved with the study. (Contains 2 figures.)
