1. Konemann, Nachel C. A descriptive study of gender bias of images in method books for beginner band.

Degree: Master of Music Education, Music Education, 2016, Texas Tech University

The research for this study focused on potential gender biases as well as sex stereotyping of musical instruments in music texts. The purpose of this study was to examine the images included in beginner band method books for gender representation. The method books examined in this study were method books identified by 81 practicing band directors as used in the beginning band classroom in the state of Texas. Beginner band method books that did not include images were removed from further consideration. The images in the method books examined (N = 13) were categorized into four classifications: male, female, undetermined, and both. The male and female categories represented an image of a single person of whom the gender could be easily identified as male or female. The “undetermined” category represented images with a single person shown in the image, but the gender was not easily identifiable or the face was not shown. The “both” category represented pairs of images in which one image showed a female and another image showed a male. Once the data were collected, the researcher then examined the data by making the following comparisons and categorizations: 1. Comparison of how many illustrations shown are of females/males. 2. Categorization of each instrument by the gender of the person playing the instrument. 3. Comparison of how many illustrations show females playing stereotypical female instruments as defined by the research of Abeles and Porter (1978) and Abeles (2009). 4. Comparison of how many illustrations show males playing stereotypical male instruments as defined by the research of Abeles and Porter (1978) and Abeles (2009). 5. Comparison of textbooks by decade of publication. 6. Comparison of textbooks published by the same publisher. 7. Comparison of number of images of males and females by publisher. Examination of the frequency of male and female images appearing in beginning band method textbooks in use among Texas band directors revealed males represented the highest percentage of images shown in beginner band method books (74.56%). Females represented the lowest percentage of images shown in beginner band method books (25.44%). The frequency of images of males and females for each instrument was examined and females were unrepresented in almost every category excluding the flute. Results also suggest there has been a notable shift towards the inclusion of both genders in the images shown in beginner band method books throughout the past five decades. When an analysis was done of images of gender stereotypical instruments, results revealed gender stereotyping of traditionally feminine instruments and traditionally masculine instruments. Because the list of method books examined is not an exhaustive list, further research should examine whether other method books not used in this study have similar results. Further research should be considered to examine possible racial bias in beginner band method books. Further research should be considered to examine the effect images in… Advisors/Committee Members: Allen, Eric (committee member), Henninger, Jacqueline (committee member), Killian, Janice (Committee Chair).

2. -2995-3473. A comparative study of teaching behaviors of band orchestra directors in ensemble rehearsals.

Degree: PhD, Fine Arts - Music, 2016, Texas Tech University

The purpose of this study is a comparative analysis of teaching behaviors between band and orchestra directors in secondary school rehearsals with their top performing groups. Though comparative studies of teaching behaviors among band directors and orchestra directors have been conducted, few have compared band teachers to orchestra teachers. The focus of this study was to determine what differences exist, if any, between the teaching behaviors of band directors and those of orchestra directors, and to make recommendations for teaching pre-service instrumental music teachers. Participants (N = 8) were full-time middle and high school directors of either band or orchestra in four Texas public school districts. Each participant was video recorded while rehearsing the varsity (or most advanced) performing group. Participants recorded three rehearsals within a two-week time period yielding recordings from a total of 12 band rehearsals and 12 orchestra rehearsals. Teaching behaviors were then analyzed using the Simple Computer Recording Interface for Behavioral Evaluation (SCRIBE) software developed by Duke and Stammen (2007). The data were reported according to the frequency with which each behavior occurred, the average amount of time expended for each behavior, and the percentage of overall time accrued for each behavior. Specific behaviors observed were: 1) Pacing (time usage): Warm-up, Tuning, Transitions, Student Activity, and Teacher Activity 2) Verbal Communications: Approval, Disapproval, Teacher Speech, Student Questions and Student Responses 3) Nonverbal Communications: Eye Contact, Facial Approval, Facial Disapproval, Body Movement, Strict Conducting, Expressive Conducting, Teacher Modeling, and Student Modeling. The results indicated that, though behaviors among successful band and orchestra teachers were similar regarding teacher activity time, student activity time, and verbal approval, differences existed in the amount of time spent on warming-up, tuning, teacher speech, questions and responses, body movement, conducting, eye contact and facial expressions. On average, orchestra teachers spent a greater percentage of time tuning, talking, and asking/answering questions. They were more likely to show facial expression (positive and negative) and used general body movement more to convey expression in music. Band teachers spent a higher percentage of time warming up, conducting, and modeling. They were more likely to maintain eye contact with students for a greater percentage of time, as well. Transition time in rehearsals, however, was different between directors based on years of experience rather than on which ensemble they directed. Results are discussed in terms of implications for future research, pre-service music teacher education programs and current classroom instrumental teachers.
