STUDENT AND TEACHER PERSPECTIVES ON INSTRUMENT SELECTION - Rachel M. Kauffman

The purpose of this descriptive qualitative research study was to gain insight on teacher and student perspectives on instrument selection. Elementary band teachers and eighth grade students from eight public school districts in Pennsylvania took an online survey. The elementary band teacher (n=8) survey focused on the different types of methods used in beginning instrument selection. The eighth grade students (n=79) were asked what they remembered about choosing their initial instrument and why they made the selection. Results revealed connections between elementary band teacher methods and students’ recollections of beginning instrument selection.
