"The music curriculum consists of all the actual musical experiences that children accept under the guidance of the school."1 This was stated by Keith Snyder in his book, School Music Administration and Supervision.
It has been estimated that more than sixty thou sand school band programs are in existence today.2 These programs involve in excess of a million students. From these figures one might conclude that a part of the music curriculum that has been accepted by many students is the study of music by the playing of band instruments.
