Univeristy of Niš, Faculty of Arts
Keywords: giftedness; musical talent; musical abilities; identification of talented school children; musical pedagogy
Starting from the fact that musical potentials of a considerable number of children remain undiscovered, this research is structured around the basic goal - to create a process of identification of musically talented young school-aged children and to implement it in the system of primary education. The theoretical frame work rests on the studies of the general conceptions of giftedness and attitude saimed at defining musical talent. The work also elaborates the specificities of assessing musical abilities as starting point of identification process. The empirical research was carried out with as ample consisting of the second-, third-and fourth-grade pupils (N=514), as well as a sample of class teachers (N=169) from the general primary schools located in the cities of Niš, Leskovac and Vranje. The data was collected on the basis of the questionnaires for the pupils and teachers, as well as by means of a specially created instrument for assessing pupils’ perceptive musical abilities. The research confirmed that a considerable number of school children with high musical abilities were not included in the formal musical education (79.8%). A particular problem refers to only 1.8% of school children from suburban areas and villages who attend music schools (as compared to 11.7% of the pupils from urban areas). The acquired theoretical and empirical data served as a basis to create a proposed model of identification of musically talented young school-aged children, which could find its practical application in the primary schools in Serbia and enable more effective identification and stimulation of the children with musical potentials.
