Student perspectives on extra-musical outcomes of experience in a high school music program Taylor, Brent


Students enrolled in high school music programs learn about music, but there are also extra-musical outcomes. The aim of this study was to ascertain what past graduates of the music program at Point Grey Secondary identify as important extra-musical outcomes of the program and how those outcomes influenced their personal development. Using a phenomenological design, past graduates of the music program at Point Grey Secondary High School were asked: 1. What do they identify as the extra-musical outcomes of the music program? 2. Why do they feel those outcomes are important? The participant/s responses fell into 6 categories: (1) The Value of Group Work, (2) Self-Confidence, (3) Mentoring, (4) The Role of Teachers, (5) Subject Specific Observations, and (6) General Impressions of High School.
