Curriculum Guide for Pre-Instrumental Program--Elementary Schools.
Bazar, W. Gayre; And Others
A team of teachers, administrators, and supervisory personnel developed this curriculum guide for a pre-instrumental program in the elementary school. It is suggested that all pupils in the grade immediately preceeding the beginning band grade be included, and that all sections taught by the music specialist be taught a minimum of 30 minutes a week for the entire school year. Although the Belwin method is suggested, this 30-lesson guide can also be adapted for use with other books. The primary exploratory instrument recommended for use in the classes is the tonette. Examples of class activities in the program include instructions on: posture, breathing, and tonguing; music reading fundamentals; pick up notes; breath marks; key signatures; introduction of 2-part harmony; note values; accompaniments; and instrumental technique. Students are encouraged to keep a notebook of each new fundamental learned. Other guides in this series are SO 006 547-549. (OPH)
