A Handbook for Music Education.
Taylor, Hortense P.
The music education program for the public schools of Washington, D.C. is presented in this handbook of K-12 music programs, collateral music programs, resource information, and teacher competencies. A philosophy, calendar, and sequential skills chart precede the main body of the handbook which first outlines the elementary program (grades K-6), a general and instrumental program. Details of this program, as for all levels, describe the basic instructional program, scheduling, and supplementary activities. The junior high school program (grades 7-9) also includes general music and instrumental music, but expands into choral, band, and orchestra activities. The senior high program (grades 10-12) introduces music appreciation, black music, history of music, piano, organ, humanities, and music theory in addition to existing choral and instrumental programs. Special programs at the high school level are a comprehensive musicianship program and a related arts program. Each course is outlined in a statement of course content, terminal performance objectives, enabling objectives, and teaching suggestions. (KSM)
