Description of Music Connections
Music Connections is an extension of the K-6 Music Core and includes concepts and skills to integrate music into everyday life. Study will include explorations in creating, experiments with singing/playing/reading music, development of analytical and evaluative skills in music listening, investigations of various purposes of music, and inquiry into music’s impact on culture, history, quality of life, and other subject areas. No prerequisite course is required.
Explanation of Standards
The Utah State Music Core divides the goals of music education into four music standards which are Perform, Create, Listen/Analyze/Evaluate, and Discover Meaning. These four divisions or standards organize the curriculum into manageable and related units and guide the student through a rich experience with music. Each standard is broken into objectives, each objective into indicators. A scoring box is placed to the left of each objective. The student scores his or her achievement within each objective using a number ranging from 0 to 10. A legend is provided wherein the student and teacher tally both the average score from the objective boxes and the total number of indicators the class has studied.
Playback/recording technology is required.
