Notes

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate (1) relationships among parental influences,
academic achievement, and adolescent self-concept as a future music educator, (2) whether
parental influences, academic achievement, and demographic factors contribute to
undergraduate students’ self-concept as a future music educator, and (3) significant
differences that exist in undergraduate students’ self-concept as a future music educator due to
select demographic factors and perceived parental influences. Subjects (N = 148) were
undergraduate music education majors students enrolled in three public university schools of
music located in the Eastern and Western United States. Participant’s class ranks ranged from
freshman to senior; individuals were registered as full time, instrumental and/or choral music
education majors. Each subject completed the Parental Influence on Self-Concept as a Music
Educator Survey (PISCAMES) and data were examined. Parental influences are related to
self-concept as a music educator and increases in self-concept as a future music educator are
influenced by differences in parental influence. Specifically, parental influence on decision to
major in music education variables parents’ feelings regarding successful completion of
education and musical ability necessary to be a successful music educator have significant (p
< .001) impact on self-concept as a future music educator.
