Abstract

This study is an examination of the influence of the Amp Up New York City (Amp Up NYC) music initiative on the development of students’ musical skills, social and emotional skills, and college and career-ready skill development. A retrospective pre-test survey was used to measure students’ self-assessment of their skill development. Surveys were also administered to their music teachers, classroom teachers, principals and parents. Student focus group interviews and classroom observations were also used to collect data in five case-study schools. Results revealed that participating students perceived Amp Up NYC affected their music classroom-learning environment, their development of musical skills, their social and emotional development and their academic skill development.
