Summary

The purposes of this study were to establish norms for the Indiana-Oregon Music Discrimination Test and to explore relationships between music discrimination and selected factors of environment, intelligence, and music experience and training. The test consists of phrases of concert-type music paired with versions of these same phrases in which one element--rhythm, melody, or harmony--has been altered. For the study, 4,412 subjects--American students in grades 5-12, British students in forms 1-6, college students (music and non-music majors), and an adult women's chorus--were given the test and asked to fill out an inventory of their music experience and training. When possible, information concerning I.Q., achievement-test scores, and school achievement was secured from school records. Analysis of the data suggested that piano experience, band/orchestra experience, and school achievement are related to music discrimination and that school music programs which are performan3e-oriented help to develop the musical tastes of youth. (Charts are included which present norms for the test and the correlation coefficients computed between music discrimination as measured by the Indiana-Oregon test and various factors of environment, music experience, and training.)
