UTILIZING FLIPPED LEARNING STRATEGIES IN TEACHING TRUMPET TO JUNIOR SECONDARY STUDENTS OF AUSTICA MEMORIA COLLEGE NANKA
The challenges associated with the traditional method of teaching seem to have bored the Nigerian junior secondary school students over the learning of trumpet and other western musical instruments; although many scholars have come up with numerous methods. This study investigated flipped learning strategies in teaching trumpet to junior secondary school students of Austica Memorial College, Nanka in Orumba North LGA of Anambra State. The study aims to make the learning of trumpet simplified for junior secondary school students to attain professional level even as young students. The study which is hinged on Benjamin Bloom’s theory of Mastery learning adopted practical methods of instruction that advocates for students to move forward at their own pace as they master knowledge, skills and dispositions. Findings show that students exposed to learning using the flipped method achieved higher than those taught with other traditional methods. It was recommended that music teachers should revisit the instructional methods employed in teaching while parents will also see to the basic educational needs of their wards.
