Title: The influence of a music intervention programme on self-esteem and enhancing students' experiences in an urban school within an under-resourced community (a pilot study)
Author: Cook, Loraine D.; Mundle, O'Neal
Abstract: This study sought to investigate the impact of engagement in music activities on students' self-esteem. The 42 students who participated attended a remedial school for adolescents, located in an inner-city community. They were exposed to a music intervention programme for one semester. The study utilized a multi-method approach, in that students were observed and interviewed during the intervention programme; and, in addition, pre- and post-tests were carried out using Rosenberg's self-esteem instruments. The findings so far suggest that students and teachers felt that the music experience enhanced their academic experience.
