Notes

Abstract: This paper reports results from the second round of data collected in the author’s ongoing
research on alternative ensembles in school music programs. (The first stage of the research
was reported at the Fifth Sociology of Music Education Symposium in Newfoundland 2007).
Following a brief introductory summary of the genesis, growth, and sustenance of programs
reported in the first stage of the research, qualitative teacher survey and interview data from
an additional eight school sites across the U.S. are examined in light of the program policy
decisions which these new cases, collectively, suggest. Specifically, policy choices and
parameters raised during the first round are discussed according to: a) student participation, b)
conceptualizations of musicianship, c) cultural-aesthetic congruence and, d) program design.
Ways in which traditional and non-traditional ensembles do, and can, co-exist while each
contributing to developing musicianship among children and teenagers will be offered as
exemplars. Differences in inherent assumptions between alternative ensemble practice and
traditional ensemble practice form the basis of recommendations set forth for the initial
framing of an applied research agenda for music teacher education reform regarding music
ensemble program policies in schools.
