calendar icon17 Jun 2021
Lincoln, Neb.--Glenn Korff Associate Professor of Practice in Music Education Danni Gilbert has had her research published in two prestigious music education journals recently.
First, her research on anxiety and depression among music majors was published in June in the Journal of Music Teacher Education (Vol. 30, issue 3, pgs. 69-83). In this exploratory research study, Gilbert compared anxiety and depression levels reported by music majors and nonmajors at a small, private liberal arts university. Study participants completed the Burns Anxiety Inventory and Burns Depression Checklist.
The study found that anxiety and depression levels were significantly higher among music majors, and there was a strong, positive relationship between anxiety and depression.
Second, her research project “An Exploration of the Use and the Attitudes Toward Technology Among Fourth and Fifth Grade Band and Orchestra Teachers, Students and Their Parents” was just published in Research & Issues in Music Education (Vol. 16, No. 1).
The purpose of this study was to determine what technologies are used in fourth and fifth grade instrumental music and to examine factors that influence the attitudes of teachers, students and their parents toward the use of those technologies.
Gilbert has been a faculty member since 2018. She serves as the Coordinator of Music Field Experiences for the music education program in the Glenn Korff School of Music, where she oversees and supervises students in their practicum and student teaching placements.
Gilbert received her bachelor’s degree in music education from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. She received her master’s degree in saxophone performance and her Ph.D. in music education, both from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
