The Curriculum of the Horace Mann Elementary School--Arithmetic, Geography, History, Music: Music


by Henry Carr Pearson - 1913

The plan for the music of the elementary grades is based upon " Education Through Music'" by Professor Farnsworth of Teachers College. The work is divided into three groups: From Song to Notation, Grades 1-3; from Notation to Song, Grades 4-6; Broadening Musical Experience, Grades 7-8. FIRST AND SECOND PHASES The first phase, From Song to Notation, presents the work through a direct musical appeal. The pupil is led to observe, define, and finally describe in terms of musical notation what, in all cases, he has first heard and sung. Musical experience in the form of rote songs is given and this experience is gradually defined through association with notation. The child passes from expression through imitation, to thought. Drill grows out of the effort to formulate what is felt.
