Music Education in Indiana and the School Music Activities Guide.
Indiana State Dept. of Public Instruction, Indianapolis.
This curriculum guide is addressed to the teacher, administrator, and lay public concerned with the musical education of their children. Section 1 is titled Fundamental Beliefs and Directions. Included also in this section are two extended discussions on the respective roles of performance and listening. The materials in Sections 2 and 3 constitute curricular extensions of the basic beliefs and expected outcomes of Section 1. Section 2 on The Scope of the Music Program presents a comprehensive and balanced view of all phases of the program as they operate in the elementary, junior high and senior high schools. Section 3 presents two major lines of elective offerings in musical performance, the vocal and the instrumental, as they operate throughout the grades, starting in the upper elementary school. Section 4, titled The Administration of the Music Education Program, is an attempt to provide recommendations on time allotments and scheduling of the various classes and activities throughout all grades. Also considered are school-community relations, rooms and equipment, and desirable characteristics of a qualified music teacher. The summary will be of particular interest to school principals and superintendents. A short appendix contains a bibliography of recommended readings. (Author/DB)
