Music Core Curriculum: Grades 7-12.
Utah State Board of Education, Salt Lake City.
Designed by the Utah State Board of Education, this music core curriculum represents the standards of learning for all students in grades 7 through 12 including the ideas, concepts, and skills that provide a foundation for subsequent learning. The curriculum guide describes the elementary and secondary school core curriculum and high school graduation requirements. Completion of the core guarantees entry into college or vocational-technical education through required course completion. The core guide offers intensive vocational-technical education, entry into research universities, and a released-time component through specialized options. An arts course chart illustrates the core art areas at different education levels. Mastery of the music core occurs when the student demonstrates the skills contained in one level sufficiently to move to the next level. Course descriptions of general music, beginning chorus, beginning band, and beginning orchestra provide information on the four core options for grades 7 and 8. After each course description, the core standards of the course and the objectives are listed. Grades 9 through 12 core options include music appreciation, intermediate chorus, intermediate band, intermediate orchestra, music theory, advanced chorus, advanced band, advanced orchestra, beginning dance, intermediate and advanced dance, beginning theater, intermediate theater, and advanced theater. Core standards and objectives for each course follow the course description. (CK)
