(p.51) Chapter 5 Music as Subject Matter
An Orientation to Musical Pedagogy

Birch P. Browning

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses what makes music an activity or a discipline worthy of study and what about music is worthy of study. It shows how music, like all disciplines worthy of study, can be understood to have cognitive, psychomotor, and affective components. Understanding the hierarchies in each facet and the relationship between the various facets helps teachers understand what music should be taught and in what ways. Music was long considered a fringe subject, but in 2014 it became a core subject in the national curriculum. Leaders within the field have written standards—curriculum guidelines—to help music teachers understand what students should know and be able to do as a consequence of music study.

Keywords:   Bloom’s taxonomy, cognitive domain, psychomotor domain, affective domain, national standards, curriculum
