Other chapters offer practical information on maintaining musicians' health, training music teachers, and evaluating music education programs. Philosophical issues, such as musical cognition, the philosophy of research theory, curriculum, and educating musically, are also explored in relationship to policy issues. In addition to surveying the literature, each chapter considers the significance of the research and provides suggestions for future study
Music in general education by Music Educators National Conference (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book challenges all music educators to return to their original role--to accept as their first responsibility the objective of music for every child. In making this challenge, ideas that could bring about some major revisions in the pattern of music education in this country are presented. These include: (1) General education in music must be planned over the entire 12 or 13 years of a student's school life and should not be limited to the elementary years plus a course or two in junior high school; (2) Every school system needs to develop well-defined goals for music in general education; (2) All music educators must come to recognize the general education nature of school music experiences and to place this aspect of their teaching before other activities; (4) Musical learnings are the responsibility of the entire school; (5) The secondary school music teacher who directs performing groups has a responsibility of organizing his rehearsals in a way that will permit his pupils to improve their attitudes toward music; (6) The relationship between music at school and music at home needs to be strengthened; (7) An extensive in-service training program is needed to re-orient thinking with respect to the objectives of secondary school music experiences; (8) a five-year collegiate program for prospective music educators is necessary to provide the breadth of education needed to meet these challenges adequately; and (9) All future members of the profession of music education should expect to assume their responsibility to enhance the general education of pupils through appropriate experiences in and with music.

Music for the academically talented student in the secondary school by William C Hartshorn( Book )

3 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the implementation of whatever recommended practices are found to be appropriate for a particular school, it is believed that greater meaning can be given to the teaching of music not only for the academically talented student, but for all students, thus enriching the entire school program. The purpose of the music program for the academically talented student is not different from that for other students, although it must be of greater depth and breadth. The music curriculum should provide continuity of experience in a broad range of musical activity. Studies in music for the academically talented student should include studies of music as a means of communication, studies of musical forms and styles, studies of sound, and development of a sensitive recognition of music in everyday experience. The music education should include experience in other arts besides music. Examples are given in each area. Scheduling should be flexible to allow seminars and team teaching. Teachers and administrators should be willing to be flexible in permitting students a diversity of musical experience. Teachers should be carefully selected for high intelligence and abundant training. They should then be supplied with an ample number of phonographs, a large library of recordings, time for preparation and research, and an understanding of the problems facing them. To strengthen the existing program it must first be evaluated. Then by aiming at the goals of learning in performing groups, music history and music theory, and continuing improvement in scheduling and academic challenge, a new program can be begun
