Since the end of World War I instrumental music has become an important and accepted part of the secondary school curriculum (17, pp. 56-59). According to a recent report published by the American Music Conference, Chicago, Illinois (19, p.3), there were in 1963 eleven million students studying music in the schools of America.
There have been numerous studies conducted t o determine the purpose and objectives of instrumental music. Many studies have also been made to ascertain what the parents' feelings are toward their schools. Yet there has been very little research or study accomplished concerning the feelings or attitudes of parents toward instrumental music in the high school.
