Abstract:The purpose of this study was to investigate the judgments of quality among undergraduate instrumental music education students and instructors by examining the relationship of their rankings of three unfamiliar band compositions and selected musical criteria. One hundred twenty-nine subjects including 124 music education students and 5 music education instructors at five Big Ten universities participated. Subjects were mailed a packet of materials including (a) instructions, (b) response forms, and (c) full scores and recordings of the three band compositions. The subjects were requested to rank the three band compositions on the basis of relative quality, rank selected musical criteria used to evaluate each composition on the basis of relative significance, and provide general background data. A Kendall's coefficient of concordance revealed statistically significant agreement on the rank order of the wind band compositions and the selected musical criteria among the 124 student subjects. Although moderately high levels of agreement existed among the 5 expert subjects, their rankings of the band compositions and musical criteria were not found to be statistically significant. A series of Kruskal-Wallis ANOVA tests revealed no significant differences between the student and expert subjects' composition and musical criteria rankings.
