The South Carolina Framework for Music Education.
This document is a South Carolina curriculum model that identifies four broad areas of study. These components, which should be present in all music education courses, are: (1) aesthetic perception and concept development; (2) creative expression and skills development; (3) music heritage, both historical and cultural; and (4) aesthetic valuing, or application of knowledge and skills. The first component consists of sound generations and modifications, pitch, rhythm, harmony and texture, form, tempo, dynamics, and timbre. The second component consists of singing, playing, movement, reading and writing music, creating, and listening. The third component consists of personal, musical, social and historical heritage. The fourth component is made up of cultural background, judgment, function of music, music structure and elements, and valuing. Goals and objectives are given for each component. This section is followed by an overview and content divided by the grade levels kindergarten to grade 2, grades 3 to 5, middle school, and high school. The final portion of the framework contains model learning objectives that are specific for the various instructional settings found in the public schools of South Carolina, such as general music, instrumental music and band, string orchestra, vocal music, music theory, music appreciation, and various advanced placement settings. The framework details outcomes of instruction in music that are recommended goals for the comprehensive and balanced program of learning experiences for students. A listing of 21 references is included in an appendix. (DK)
