Pull-Out Music Lessons and its Effects on the Academic Achievement of Band Students
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of pull-out instrumental (band) lessons on academic achievement within a Lutheran school environment. Fortyfive sixth grade students from three different Lutheran schools were divided into two groups. The first group of 20 students was labeled as band, the second group of 25 was non-band. The band students were pulled out of class for two 30-minute rehearsals and one 15-minute individual lesson each week. In addition to information gleaned from sixth grade teacher surveys, a two-sample independent t-test analysis was used to determine if there was a significant difference between the standardized test s~ores of the band students and the non-band students. The t-test was also used on the third grade level (pre-band) of all of the students to provide a benchmark and to measure progress. It was hypothesized that the pull-out lessons would not be detrimental to the band students in any category as measured by the Iowa Test of Basic Skills. Findings support the hypothesis; that is, pull-out music lessons in the Lutheran school do not adversely affect the academic achievement of the students involved in the band program.
