This guide outlines a music program for grades seven through nine. The guide replaces the interim guide issued in 1977 as part of an overall revision of music programs for Manitoba schools and is designed to articulate with the existing guide for K-6. The developers believe that junior high school students learn best through active personal involvement, and they designed the program with this in mind. The 7-9 music program is organized into five routes: chorus, string/orchestra, band, guitar, and the modular route. For each route the guide contains a scope and sequence for grades 7, 8, and 9 and discusses rationale, objectives, course content, program organization and implementation, and resource materials. All routes, with the exception of the modular route, are performance oriented, stressing a sequential skill development in the performance skills (technical skills pertinent to the route of study), language of music (terminology and theory pertinent to the route of study), and the story of music (repertoire pertinent to the route of study).
