Title: Survey and analysis of insecure music teaching attitudes of selected classroom teachers
Author: Jordan, Flossie L
Abstract: A survey determined insecure attitudes , reasons for them , and possible solutions for those classroom teachers who must teach music without the assistance of a music specialist . A questionnaire was designed to assess a situation which exists in Texas whereby Texas Education Agency guidelines do not consistently provide for special music teachers in elementary schools of the state . Results of the questionnaire were computerized to provide accurate statistical data from which to draw conclusions . The data indicated that attitudes toward teaching music are primarily affected by grade level taught , musical background , and philosophy of teaching music in the elementary classroom . Attitudes were a factor in determining the frequency of music classes and the comprehensiveness of the music program . Subjects of the survey blamed neglect of music in the classroom on insufficient training for classroom teachers in college and specified the need for a music framework especially suited to the classroom teacher who is without a music background . Possible solutions indicated 1 ) a need for favorable elementary music experiences rather than placing undue emphasis on technical music factors and 2 ) a need for a diversified and comprehensive music background for future classroom teachers . This study may be of interest to school boards , school administrators , elementary music supervisors , and university music education instructors .
