Abstract:
The purpose of this multiple case study was to examine the experiences of adolescent students and their adult relatives participating in The Family Orchestra Project, a program designed to promote family bonding through shared musical study and performance. Participants of this study were four adult-child dyads. Data collected included field notes, a questionnaire, a focus group interview, adult-child pair interviews, audio recordings, written prompts, and a video recording. Five cross-case themes emerged during coding and data analysis: Role Reversal, Patience, Practice, Bonding, and Group Music Making. The findings of the study reveal that a shared music making experience such as The Family Orchestra Project can facilitate adult-child bonding and communication during early adolescence while also challenging the individuals to grow as they assume nontraditional roles in their relationship. Implications for practice in the music education of adolescents are discussed and recommendations for future research are provided in the concluding chapter.
