Katherine McWilliams Knotts, Prairie View Agricultural and Mechanical College


It has been generally accepted that the problems involved in the instrumental music program have existed since this phase of music was begun. An effective instrumental program is necessary in order for such a program to achieve its goal. About 92% of what we hear daily by radio and television is music. This amount perhaps is considerably supervising and shows the attention-getting capabilities of music. Nearly every advertising medium finds an injection of music in its contents. However until attention is directed toward it, one is not aware of it.

Significance Of The Study

The phase of music selected for this study was instrumental music. Throughout the history of this subject, the problem involved have been present. Therefore, any effort towards the solution of the problems must be vital concern to those who work in the field. It has been noticed that most of the recent graduates in instrumental music find their first job organizing and developing the instrumental program in the school. With this in mind, this study could be valuable to those interested and working in this field.
