Music education provided by music school has an optimal proportion of
traditional and contemporary pedagogical methods, thus serving as a good example
of successful coexistence of the “old” and the “new” in education. Its
constant challenge is questioning the demands of time and planning necessary
educational adjustments. This is the premise which this work focuses on and has
come into being as part of the activities carried out to mark the 190th anniversary
of the founding of Varaždin Music School and exploring today’s expectations of
the education students receive in this school.
The research, which was voluntary and anonymous, involved 152 Varaždin
Music School students. The sample included students in the first preparatory
grade, and in Grades from 1 to 4 of the secondary music school. The questionnaire
on expectations of music education designed for this research was used.
The t-test showed no statistically significant differences in the expectations
of music education in the music school with respect to the sex of the respondents.
An exception is the expectation of earnings, where the estimate of male
students that they learn music because it creates the prospects for good earnings
is statistically significantly higher than that of the female (t=3.81, p=0.000)
Kruskal-Wallis’s test amongst the constructed groups - 1st and 2nd grade of
preparatory education for secondary music school (MS43); 1st and 2nd grade of
secondary MS; 3rd and 4th grade of secondary MS - showed statistically significant
differences in the estimates of expectations of music education regarding the
following statements: my parents motivated me to go to music school (estimates
increase with age), I was surprised that for MS one has to regularly practice
playing/singing (estimates decrease with age), I go to MS because I want to be a professional musician (estimates increase with age), MS did not meet my expectations
(estimates increase with age), I learn music because it allows good
earnings (estimates increase with age), I enrolled in MS because playing and
singing is not difficult (estimates decrease with age), MS should offer more practical
music content (estimates increase with age), MS does not provide enough
theoretical music content (estimates increase with age), the most important in
MS is to achieve good marks (estimates decrease with age).
The overall results obtained - estimates on the questionnaire scales and answers
to open type questions - point to a conclusion that music school fulfils
musical and educational expectations of its students.
The comments and suggestions given by students show that during secondary
music education they become aware of only part of educational and professional
opportunities in music. Therefore, in the future, music school should work
on broadening their perspective.
