This guide delineates Utah's secondary school music course curricula. The introductory section, "Music Connections," contains a music achievement portfolio for a general music course. The guide explains that "Music Connections" is an extension of the K-6 music core and includes concepts and skills to integrate music into everyday life. It states that the study includes explorations in creating experiments with singing/playing/reading music, development of analytical and evaluative skills in music listening, investigations of music purposes, and inquiry into music's impact on culture, history, quality of life, and other subject areas. The guide further explains that the Utah state music core divides the goals of music education into these four music standards: (1) perform; (2) create; (3) listen/analyze/evaluate; and (4) discover meaning. Following the introductory section, the guide contains 12 other sections: (1) "Guitar"; (2) "Choir I"; (3) "Band I"; (4) "Orchestra I"; (5) "Music Aesthetics"; (6) "Choir II"; (7) "Band II"; (8) "Orchestra II"; (9) "Composition"; (10) "Choir III"; (11) "Band III"; and (12) "Orchestra III." Each section is outlined in a music achievement portfolio and a student achievement portfolio format. (BT)
