Lost and Found: Music Activities Delivered by Primary Classroom Generalists
King, Fiona
Victorian Journal of Music Education, n1 p3-8 2015
Primary classroom teachers can play a vital role in the music education of primary school students, providing a basis for lifelong learning in music and the arts. Research shows that not all Victorian primary school students have equitable access to music education and that the role of the classroom teacher becomes valuable in supplying or augmenting music education. An instrumental case study was conducted on the music activities delivered by three purposefully selected participants located at Melbourne metropolitan schools. The resulting data, representing the teaching practice and perceptions of participants has been presented in two frameworks, with the aim of assisting classroom teachers to include music activities in their day to day teaching, and to deepen student learning in and through music.
