Abstract

The purpose of this research was to investigate the effect of using bamboo xylophone as harmonic accompaniment on the singing achievement of Primary Two children. Four intact classes ( n =80) from two public schools in the city of Kota Kinabalu were randomly assigned as control ( n =40) and experimental groups ( n =40). The control group received music instruction without harmonic accompaniment while the experimental group received music instruction with bamboo xylophone as harmonic accompaniment. Each child singing two criterion songs was audio recorded individually before and after a 12-week instructional period. The singing achievement test was evaluated by three evaluators using the Singing Achievement Rating Scales. Results indicated that there was a significant effect on the singing achievement between the two groups in the comparison of pretest and posttest mean gain scores. Moreover, the percentage of children in the experimental group improved more than the control group. It is suggested that any future study of this experimental model might include more longitudinal data and be conducted with a larger sample size
