Choral singing--Instruction and study
The exploration of contemporary music is frequently a neglected area of music study in the junior high school choral program. This problem has been influenced by several factors. Teachers often lack an educational background in the contemporary idiom and thus fall to include it in their course of study; or if it Is included, It is frequently dealt with in a superficial manner. There is also the problem of identifying contemporary music suitable for junior high school use. In order for teachers to expect maximum results from the teaching of contemporary music, it is necessary to make available selective lists of successful contemporary music materials for this age group and the sources for those materials. Successful results will also depend upon a knowledge of the subject and guidelines for the presentation of such materials to young people. The aim of this project is to investigate and determine appropriate ways to teach contemporary music successfully in the junior high school choral program.
