This research project involves the implementation of a music program at a women’s correctional facility. The intentions of this program are to discern the positive effects of music on one’s perception of self. Acclimation to prison culture involves a loss of identity as inmates lose their sense of autonomy. They no longer retain control over when to wake up, eat, spend time outside, or sleep. Additionally, by dressing the same and being identified by an inmate number, they are further reduced to what society perceives them as: criminals and convicts. This music program seeks to shift this perception, and revive the sense of self-worth and accomplishment within incarcerated women. Twenty-six participants will be divided evenly into intervention and control groups. The intervention group will meet once a week over 8 weeks for approximately 40 minutes to engage in prepared musical activities. Before and after the intervention period, both groups will be given surveys and asked questions about identity-themed metrics such as self-esteem, life satisfaction, and life motivation. The participants will be provided with instruments such as electronic keyboards, steel drums, xylophones, and percussive drums. Towards the end of the program, we will work to write a collaborative original song that the women can perform for everyone if they would like. Through writing their own lyrics, these women will be able to emotionally express themselves, which is a therapeutic method utilized to help improve mood. Data will be collected and analyzed to measure the extent to which the music program improved self-perception and revived a sense of identity.
