Music Department Calendar

2016-2017

 

Christopher Johnson, professor of music and associate dean of the School of Fine Arts, University of Kansas, completed a report, recently published in the Journal of Research in Music Education which said that the quality of music programs relates to participating students’ test scores.

As for Johnson’s thoughts on the possible explanations for his research findings, he said that music demands discipline and intensity, skills that can transfer over to other aspects of students’ lives.

“There is a high level of contingency on being focused and concentrating and doing it right,” he said. “There’s also a need for making it perfect.”
