The teaching of music and musicianship has been the most neglected activity of the high school teacher, and the performance in real situations has been frequently deplored by our teachers. Within the last twenty years, creative teachers and research workers well informed on recent findings concerning the learning process have reexamined the results of music lists and methods. These educators are concentrating their efforts on how the child can be helped to meet with a high degree of satisfaction his personal needs in music and musicianship. In order to provide information on the problems which arise in singing organizations, a study of choral organization was undertaken at Prairie View Agricultural and Mechanical College in nineteen hundred and sixty-four and nineteen hundred and sixty-five*
