Title: Elementary students' recognition and analysis of their own singing voices from digital recordings
Author: Tryon, April C.
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assess elementary students' development and ability to recognize and analyze their own singing voices from a consumer quality digital recorder . In this study the first through third grades were chosen to learn and individually record an age -appropriate song chosen from their curriculum . Students then listened to three different voices to determine which one was theirs . Next they listened to their voices again and were asked , "Did you sing the melody correctly ?" , "Did you sing the rhythm correctly ?" and "Did you start on the correct singing note ?" Students' self -analysis of their own singing voices were then tested against the researchers analysis of their voices . Results indicated that second and third graders were able to analyze themselves more accurately than first graders . Results also indicated that although only half of the students performed their songs accurately , the majority of them could correctly assess their singing accuracy .
