dc.description.abstractThe Problem The purpose and aim of this study has been to make a thorough investigation and analysis, through a national survey, of clarinet methods used in the public schools, and to arrive at some tenable conclusions regarding the efficacy of various types of methods in school situations. Procedures The steps in this study have been: 1. The selection and organization of a set of criteria for evaluating methods 2. The construction of a questionnaire and the use of it as a survey instrument 3. The tabulation of data resulting from the survey 4. The development of an evaluative chart for evaluating methods of study 5. The study and evaluation of nine leading elementary clarinet methods reported in the survey. Results Two hundred and fifty-one questionnaires were sent to various music supervisors and instrumental instructors throughout the country. One hundred and eight questionnaires were returned which was a 43.3 per cent response. The survey showed that 81.5 per cent of the schools offered first year instruction, 67.6 per cent offered second year instruction, and 50 per cent third year instruction, and 45.3 per cent offered private study. The methods or series of methods reported to be most successfully used for all levels of instruction were as follows: Rubank; Easy Steps to Band and Intermediate Steps to Band; Belwin; A Tune A Day; Smith-Yoder-Bachman; Boosey and Hawkes Band; Hetzel's Visual; Beginning Band Musicianship (3-way); First Semester Band; Modern Melody; Klose; Langenus; and Lazarus.
