Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

How non -music majors experience the value of participating in music
by Bures, Ruth, Ed.D., Saint Mary's University of Minnesota, 2009, 116; 3358977
Abstract (Summary)

This qualitative study examined the experience of active participation in music making as perceived by college students who continued to participate in music performance even though they had no intentions of pursuing music as a career. It explored what value students found in continuing to make music. Students who were active in collegiate level instrumental ensembles, but who were not music majors, participated in this study.
