Music has been a constituent of the public school curriculum in Pinellas County for a period of many years. The success of the program is clearly showy in terms of the place it has achieved in the community. Church choirs, symphony orchestras, and music recreation programs are being maintained. Secondary school students have shown a continuing interest in music throughout college and many have elected it as a career or vocation. However, the county school administration and teaching staff are not confident tha.t these evidences of' the effectiveness of their program are complete proof that it is an adequate one. The Supervisor of Music and the Director of Instruction have initiated a study with the co-operation of music instructors in the country, designed to improve the present program and equalize music opportunities of children in county schools.
