Music in Elementary Education. Bulletin No. 743.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Curriculum Development.
This guide presents a general music program for elementary grades. The program divides the grades into four levels: early childhood through grade 1, grades 2-3, grades 4-5, and grade 6. At each level the program is outlined in terms of rhythm, melody, harmony, form, tempo, dynamics, and tone color. In addition, there is a section on instrumental programs which is strongly recommended as an enrichment of the general music program, a section on evaluation which explains and gives examples of both teacher-prepared and standardized music tests, and a section on equipping the music room which lists instruments, records, textbooks, and other equipment necessary for this type of program. There are short paragraphs dealing with music in kindergarten, multi cultural education, and special education. The document includes a glossary of musical terms and an appendix with a list of resource materials and a directory. (PB)
