In this curriculum guide a flexible music program is offered that provides a variety of interesting and challenging courses for pupils in grades 9 through 12. The objective is to present a musical education program to meet the wide range of needs of different pupils many of whom will use music as a hobby or to enrich their cultural background. Emphasis is upon courses consisting of three important and specific areas in: 1) skill development that includes various kinds of vocal, instrumental and keyboard experiences; 2) musical knowledge that comprises courses in general music, music history and literature, music theory, foundations of music, composition, and conducting; and 3) attitude development offering enrichment activities that help students achieve objectives representing greater personal music involvement. A minor portion of the syllabus is devoted to general information useful to both administrators and music teachers, providing a general frame of reference for the development of a high school music program.
