Recommended Standards and Evaluative Criteria for the Education of Music Teachers.
Music Educators National Conference, Washington, DC.
This document represents a compilation of questionnaires designed to arrive at standards and evaluative criteria for the education of music educators. The document is divided into five broad areas: a) personal qualities, b) musical competencies, c) professional qualities, d) general education, and e) professional procedures. Under these broad headings possible standards are broken down as to type and degree. The stated assumption that reflects all the standards in this document is that music educators need to demonstrate more than performance skills; they need broad musicianship, coupled with open-mindedness towards the use of any sounds combined in a musical context, that will enable them to address themselves to any music they encounter. A recommended music education curriculum outline is appended. (JA)
