Wendrich, Kenneth A.; Palisca, Claude V.
This report summarizes the work of the Yale Music Curriculum Project, the purpose of which was to develop an academically respectable music literature course to stimulate the listening capacity of the secondary school student through his recognition and analysis of musical genre form. Included are (1) a rationale summarizing the need for such a curriculum, (2) author summaries of the 9 units of the curriculum, each unit analyzing one or 2 major musical works which represent major styles and composers of the music of western civilization from the 18th century to the present and which illustrate a particular genre form--music for the dance, music for the keyboard, chamber music, the symphony, the concerto, the opera, the oratorio, program music, and American music, (3) an evaluation of the development and application of the curriculum in the classroom, indicating those participating in the project, student and teacher evaluations of the program, and evaluation instruments, and (4) a chronological list of lectures and demonstrations on this project's approach and materials.
