The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of
visual performance presentations on student perceptions of the
elements of music. Eighth and 12th grade student groups (n = 155)
were randomly assigned from intact music classes into two
presentation groups (audio and video). A Posttest Control Group
Design was utilized to determine the treatment effects of four
videotaped performances on student responses to Olson's (©1987). Two excerpts in Jazz style (big band) and two in Classical
style (symphony orchestra) were presented in random order to each
of the treatment groups. The experimental group was presented a
videotaped music performance of each excerpt while the control
group was presented only the audiotaped performances of the same
excerpts. The students responded to twenty-eight test statement
items regarding melody, form, texture, meter, rhythm, harmony, tone
color, tempo, and dynamics in the four different music performances.
