dc.description.abstractA comparison of the vocal music program of Fairfield High School with other Connecticut high schools was necessary because, it was felt by the author and the school authorities, that the existing program was not up to the standards desired by the State Department of Education. The high school level was chosen because it was at this level, that the author was chiefly concerned. When the study was begun Fairfield High School was a Class B school, but before the investigation was completed, the enrollment of this high school had increased, so that the number of pupils was over one thousand, thus making it a Class A school. For this reason both types of schools were included in the survey. A few of the Class C schools were sent questionnaires, because of their nearness to the Fairfield location. Another reason for selecting high school level was because it was there that opportunities in various phases of vocal music education should be offered to the gifted student. Some definite problems existed in this school, so that it was felt by the author, that too many of these students were not getting all the advantages of a full music program. Poor planning and scheduling of classes, the failure to recognize music as an equal with other subjects in the curriculum, the lack of pupil participation in music activities in the school, as well as in the state, and lack of proper housing of the music department, were all problems that contributed to the failure of providing acequate opportunity for students gifted in music [TRUNCATED]en_US
