Indian Prairie School District 204

Music

The Music Program at May Watts

District 204 is presently using THE MUSIC CONNECTION by Silver Burdett Ginn as our textbook for kindergarten through fifth grade music. The series has been organized into three developmental sections in each text, following the district’s music curriculum.


The sections are:


CONCEPTS OF MUSIC: This section is arranged by units: RHYTHM,  MELODY, HARMONY, FORM, TONE COLOR, TEXTURE, AND EXPRESSION. A careful selection of song literature, from a variety of cultures is presented with each concept.


THEMES: The music literature presented in this section is based on common classroom themes related to self, family, friends, adventures, and celebrations. These songs also help reinforce the music concepts taught in the concept section of the book.


READING: The purpose of this section is to teach tonal skills, rhythmic, and melodic concepts.
