Music Education. Student Terminal Goals, Program Goals, and Behavioral Objectives.
Mesa Public Schools, AZ.
While the goals of the music program of the Mesa Public Schools are outlined in this guide, implementation techniques are left to school faculties. The terminal goal is for each student to attain the highest level of musical understanding and appreciation. Program goals, for which specific behavioral objectives are listed by primary, intermediate, and junior high grade levels, include the following: a) an understanding of the basic elements of music notation; b) an aural and visual recognition of orchestral instruments; c) an ability to differentiate between periods of music history and to identify their dominant personalities; d) an ability to conduct basic metric patterns; f) an ability to differentiate between various voice classifications and to determine individual range and quality; and g) an ability to read simple melodies at sight and to maintain a harmony part. Objectives that carry out the program goals are to be considered check points in a continuous progress approach to music education. (JH)
