Music History and Culture: a Suggested Method of Presenting Music History At the High School Level
Date of Graduation
Master of Music
The purpose of this study was to create an alternative method of presenting music history at the high school level. The study was designed to provide music educators with a method of presenting music history as it relates to elements outside of music with the purpose of helping students gain a better understanding of the culture and related events surrounding a period of art music. The suggested lesson plans are intended to open the musical arena to include non-musical elements in order to deepen student comprehension of music history. The study was designed to help teachers build a general music curriculum in which music is presented within a historical and cultural framework. Included is a set of goals containing unit objectives and learning activities for teachers and students as well as two teaching units based on the goals.
