Music--Instruction and study; Programmed instruction
The purpose of this study is to analyse teaching machines and programs which might be used in music education. The wide acceptance of programed learning by administrators, teachers and students has increased greatly in the past five years and programed instruction is now being used in industry, federal government and education. The design of teaching machines has changed radically from that of early ones which used paper to modern ones which use microfilm. Three types of machines which seem most adaptable to music include the disk machine, audio-visual combination machines, and the non-mechanical constructed-response type of machine. Cost is a factor which may become of prime importance in certain circumstances in determining where and how a program will be used. Programed text books may be used as additional means of instruction. Areas in music education which lend themselves to programed instruction include music theory, and music history and literature.
