A study of the background and development of the teaching of homeroom music shows that there is an ever-increasing need for an understanding of the many problems which face the administrators, the teachers, and the teacher education institutions. This study of the training of the homeroom music teacher was made for the purpose of defining and analyzing these problems, as they apply to situations in the state of Washington, and determining, from the opinions of teachers and principals now concerned with the situation, what might be best done to improve present conditions in order to insure effective continuation of the elementary school music program toward its aims and ideals.
