Abstract

Prior to the school year 1963-64, general music at Ritzville Junior High School was primarily music listening-oriented. There was an obvious need for a more balanced music program that included singing, playing instruments, creativity, listening, and rhythms to provide the students with a broader concept of music. A general music program was sought, therefore, that would offer a balance of the above activities, and one that would create more enthusiasm than was apparent in the previous course of study. The importance of this study will be twofold: to determine whether or not the method of teaching resulted in the students receiving a well-balanced program, and whether or not there were definite signs of increased enthusiasm on the part of the students.
