dc.type Thesis
dcterms.abstract This study aims to determine the effect of the Yuba Method on pitch accuracy when applied to a group of adult singers and answer the following questions: Is there a difference between the overall mean absolute error for the control and treatment groups? Is there a difference within-groups in the mean absolute error during the three instructional periods (IP#1, IP#2, IP#3)? Is there a difference between the absolute interval error from notes 14 to 15 between control and treatment groups? Is there a difference between the absolute interval error from note 14 to 15 within-groups during the three instructional periods (IP#1, IP#2, IP#3)? The control group was taught a choral warm-up and then led through a 50-minute rehearsal. The experimental group was taught the Yuba Method and then led through50-minute rehearsal. The participants were recorded singing “Happy Birthday” before rehearsal and immediately after rehearsal. The results were analyzed for mean overall interval error scores and the interval error between notes 14 and 15 using the Tony Software. The results showed that the experimental group improved overall pitch-matching accuracy more drastically than the control group. The experimental group improved interval error scores between notes 14 and 15 more drastically than the control group. The Yuba Method seeks to expand the vocal range by encouraging the use of the falsetto voice, thus increasing the ability to match pitch. The use of repetition, movement, and hand motions during the Yuba Method could have also affected the increase in pitch matching ability. The difference between control and experimental group composition was a contributing factor.
