This guide outlines a music program for kindergarten through grade 6. The developers believe that a knowledge of music will lead to increased enjoyment and participation now and later in life. The bulk of the guide contains a program outline for each grade level. The program is comprised of three categories: objectives (the skill or concept that is being developed), experiences and activities, and examples or specific illustrations of the activities. The activities are sequenced so that song materials and skill development at one stage become the basis for further development at a later stage. Concepts focused on are rhythm, melody, harmony, form, and tone color or texture. Children learn to read simple melodies from notation, hear a wide range of recorded musical compositions and tone colors, experience the relationship between music and movement, play a variety of percussion and simple melodic instruments, write simple musical phrases or compositions, sing a wide variety of songs, and participate in musical groups and activities that are generated by school music programs. Also included in the guide is a discussion of teaching methods for creating music, choral techniques, sequentials, recorder techniques, listening, and movement. Another section cites recommended texts and additional resource materials. (Author/RM)
