This report attempts to set down the collective thought of 31 musicians, scholars, and teachers who met during the Seminar on Music Education, held at Yale University from June 17 through June 28, 1963, intent on improving elementary and secondary school music. The participants represented a cross-section of professional interests in music and brought different perspectives to discussions concerning music education and curriculum development. The object, as in other disciplines such as the sciences and mathematics, is to bring the subject matter and method of teaching in line with contemporary knowledge and culture. Bulletin contents include: (1) Why Hold the Seminar?; (2) Developing Musicality; (3) Broadening the Music Repertory; (4) Listening--The Key to Understanding; (5) Keeping the Interested Students Interested; (6) Bringing Professional Musicians to the Schools; (7) Aids to Teaching; (8) Teacher Training and Retraining; (9) Thoughts on Educational Research and Development; and (10) Summary. Appended is a list of seminar participants and observers. (Contains 3 footnotes and 1 figure.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
