Abstract
Various comprehensive musicianship teaching methods have been used in school instrumental programs throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The intention of this study was to determine the attitudes of adult community band members on the use of comprehensive musicianship teaching methods within rehearsals. Members of the South of the River Community Band were asked to complete a survey containing twenty forced-choice statements. The survey included statements concerning the band member's attitudes towards learning additional information about the music being prepared. In conclusion the members of the South of the River Community Band were found to be accepting of learning additional musical knowledge during a rehearsal. Continuing a program such as this, and promoting the idea of incorporating comprehensive musicianship to other adult ensembles, is a viable option worth pursuing.
