Improvisation in the Elementary Music Classroom: A Descriptive Study of Mentored and Non-Mentored...

December 1, 1994 / By: Mari N. Espeland

Are children actually improvising in their elementary music classrooms? What skills do music teachers need to facilitate improvisation in their classrooms? This study was designed to answer these questions by comparing three music teachers who participated in the Mentorship Residency Program at the University of St. Thomas to three music teachers who had similar education, but were not mentored.
