This curriculum guide has been prepared for use by music specialists in the junior high and intermediate schools in New York City. It also can be used in high schools as a supplement to the required music curriculum. Each unit begins with a teacher's guide which outlines the material to be covered, a summary of unit content, the characteristics of the music of that unit, learning areas, and vocabulary. This is followed by a series of lessons for each unit. The areas covered are: (1) popular music (disco and rock); (2) popular Latin American music; (3) grass roots of U.S. music; (4) music for the voice; (5) jazz; (6) music in the theater; (7) music in the concert hall; (8) program music; and (9) makers of music.
