The Musical Experience

Oxford University Press

With the goals of increased enrollment and the development of lifelong musicianship skills, this chapter presents suggestions regarding potential changes to existing music education curricula for secondary schools in the United States. These suggestions involve the areas of teacher control, musical and creative decision making, formal concerts, size of music classes, the instruments and musical styles studied in schools, traditional notation, the development of lifelong musicianship skills, program entry points, and the achievement of functional musicianship. Additionally, new courses are suggested and described for undergraduate music education programs that could help prepare preservice music teachers for a different teaching/learning model.

Keywords:   change, curricula, musicianship, teacher control, musical decision making, creative decision making, teaching/learning model
