Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Using purposive sampling, four National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) accredited Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) were selected, ensuring equal representation of institutions from all regions in the United States; parochial, non-parochial, private and public. Institutions examined in this study are as follows: Howard University, Xavier University-Louisiana, Central State University and Prairie View A&M University. Focusing on undergraduate music education curricula in HBCUs, the researcher conducted this pilot study by examining findings based on the following questions: 1) What music curricula are offered at NASM accredited HBCUs?; 2) What are the strengths and weaknesses of music programs at HBCUs? and; 3) What implications for future research are suggested by this pilot study?
