Oregon Calls the Tune. Oregon ASCD Curriculum Bulletin, Vol. XXXI. No. 334.
Aebischer, Delmer W.
This music curriculum bulletin is designed for curriculum directors, administrators, and teachers for use in examining and expanding their existing music programs for elementary and secondary grades. It describes rationale, exemplary programs, and evaluation measures for music education programs in Oregon. Chapter one discusses the importance of the community, school board, school administration, and individual music teachers in creating an environment in which music programs can be successful. In chapter two, a series of articles explains how music experiences are integral in childhood education; suggests concepts and tasks to be taught in elementary and intermediate grades; and reviews programs which introduce children to electronic synthesizers or ethnic music. Five mini-courses for fifth to seventh graders are described in chapter three. These focus on jazz, opera, and sight reading. Chapters four through six present exemplary high school music programs, a string program, and a survey of careers in music. Results of the 1975 survey of Oregon music education show data on factors such as facilities available to music teachers or instruments on which elementary students are proficient. Purpose and goals of evaluation are reviewed in chapter eight, followed by an appendix containing six evaluation checklists for school music programs. (AV)
