The Creative Music Curriculum for Pre-Primary Schools
Lam, Stella Wai Man; Wright, Susan
Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, v5 n2 p207-220 2004
This article examines the multifaceted nature of pre-primary music teachers' and supervisors' beliefs and practices in music education. It focuses on the general process of creativity (particularly as applied to music education); the classroom setting and how it influences the way music educators approach teaching and learning; and the structuring of music curricula to encourage higher levels of musical thinking in children. The article recommends that regular formal training opportunities in a creative music curriculum should be made available to equip teachers with the skills necessary to integrate music into their current curricula and to improve the quality of education.
