General Music 10-20-30. Guide to Implementation.
Crawford, Lorraine, Ed.
In Canada's province of Alberta, senior high school General Music 10-20-30 is a sequence of courses for students who are interested in a broad spectrum of musical experiences within a nonperformance-based environment but not interested in specializing in choral or instrumental performance. General Music 10, 20, and 30 courses are offered for 3 or 5 credits. Each general music course includes required and elective components. Each module contains the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that most students can achieve in 25 hours of instruction. Some modules are developed in a three level sequence. In these cases, the preceding level is a prerequisite to the succeeding one. The program modules are: (Required Components) Theory: Elements and Structures, Levels 1, 2, 3; Music Making, Levels 1, 2, 3; (Elective Components) Composition, Levels 1, 2, 3; History of Western Music, Levels 1, 2, 3; Music and Technology, Levels 1, 2, 3; World Music, Levels 1, 2, 3; Careers in Music; Jazz Appreciation; and Popular Music. The General Music 10-20-30 program is designed to help students develop competencies and strive for excellence in performing/listening, creating, researching, valuing, and attitudes. The student is involved as a performer, a listener, a critic, a consumer, a historian, a creator, and a composer. Music education should begin at an early age, be continuous, and encourage continuous creative expression. This guide presents an overview of the modules; information for planning and managing the music class; teaching strategies; and evaluations. Following the introduction, the eight modules are presented in depth. Includes five appendixes of additional information. (BT)
