by Davison, Therese M., D.A., Franklin Pierce University, 2012, 158; 3545144
Abstract (Summary)

This dissertation is a review of interdisciplinary literature relevant to competition in music education programs. The design brings together literature in subject areas not normally seen in one work and addresses perspectives that are often neglected in the disciplinary and professional literature. The selected literature concentrates on addressing high school band competitions as they relate to the general goals of high school music education programs.

The achieved focus includes the researcher's personal experience, issues of ideology, psychology, aesthetics, lifelong learning, and education, as well as recommendations for leadership in the philosophy and design of music education programs.
