A Beginning Music Curriculum for Home Schoolers

December 1, 1997 / By: Lisa Graham

The purpose of this study was to provide an eclectic, experientially based music curriculum for home schoolers. The ideas of Dalcroze, Kodaly, and Orff and their followers helped to shape the content of the curriculum. Its organization and the teaching process it sets forth were based on the writings of Dewey (1938), Tyler (1949), and Eisnern (1994), four modern leaders in curriculum reform.
