Hence, these teaching strategies were incorporated into the blended approach to put together innovative instructional materials for teaching beginner string ensembles.

None of the students had had any prior instrumental music training. The students were purposively allocated to one of the two instructional material; these were (a) an experimental group that were subject to the blended approach, using instructional materials based on Dick and Carey (Dick, Carey and Carey, 2005) ;and (b) a control group that received conventional teaching via instructional materials based on printed method books. Following the 14-week treatment, the students completed an achievement test, performance assessment, and satisfaction survey…
