MUSIC FOR THE ACADEMICALLY TALENTED STUDENT IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOL.
HARTSHORN, WILLIAM C.; AND OTHERS
BY THE IMPLEMENTATION OF WHATEVER RECOMMENDED PRACTICES ARE FOUND TO BE APPROPRIATE FOR A PARTICULAR SCHOOL, IT IS BELIEVED THAT GREATER MEANING CAN BE GIVEN TO THE TEACHING OF MUSIC NOT ONLY FOR THE ACADEMICALLY TALENTED STUDENT, BUT FOR ALL STUDENTS, THUS ENRICHING THE ENTIRE SCHOOL PROGRAM. THE PURPOSE OF THE MUSIC PROGRAM FOR THE ACADEMICALLY TALENTED STUDENT IS NOT DIFFERENT FROM THAT FOR OTHER STUDENTS, ALTHOUGH IT MUST BE OF GREATER DEPTH AND BREADTH. THE MUSIC CURRICULUM SHOULD PROVIDE CONTINUITY OF EXPERIENCE IN A BROAD RANGE OF MUSICAL ACTIVITY. STUDIES IN MUSIC FOR THE ACADEMICALLY TALENTED STUDENT SHOULD INCLUDE STUDIES OF MUSIC AS A MEANS OF COMMUNICATION, STUDIES OF MUSICAL FORMS AND STYLES, STUDIES OF SOUND, AND DEVELOPMENT OF A SENSITIVE RECOGNITION OF MUSIC IN EVERYDAY EXPERIENCE. THE MUSIC EDUCATION SHOULD INCLUDE EXPERIENCE IN OTHER ARTS BESIDES MUSIC. EXAMPLES ARE GIVEN IN EACH AREA. SCHEDULING SHOULD BE FLEXIBLE TO ALLOW SEMINARS AND TEAM TEACHING. TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS SHOULD BE WILLING TO BE FLEXIBLE IN PERMITTING STUDENTS A DIVERSITY OF MUSICAL EXPERIENCE. TEACHERS SHOULD BE CAREFULLY SELECTED FOR HIGH INTELLIGENCE AND ABUNDANT TRAINING. THEY SHOULD THEN BE SUPPLIED WITH AN AMPLE NUMBER OF PHONOGRAPHS, A LARGE LIBRARY OF RECORDINGS, TIME FOR PREPARATION AND RESEARCH, AND AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE PROBLEMS FACING THEM. TO STRENGTHEN THE EXISTING PROGRAM IT MUST FIRST BE EVALUATED. THEN BY AIMING AT THE GOALS OF LEARNING IN PERFORMING GROUPS, MUSIC HISTORY AND MUSIC THEORY, AND CONTINUING IMPROVEMENT IN SCHEDULING AND ACADEMIC CHALLENGE, A NEW PROGRAM CAN BE BEGUN.
