Suggestions for a great Christian Music Curriculum for Elementary
Date: November 18, 2011
I've just started a teaching job at a private Christian school and currently I'm teaching grades 7-12 choir. They are adding grades 2-6 to my schedule. It's a small school, so it's not as overbearing as it may sound; however, with my background in music education for public schools, I'm looking for a conservative Christian curriculum that would teach elementary music with an excellent methodology.
I'm a strong believer in teaching movable 'do' solfege and the importance of rhythm. I also want to teach music literacy and basic recorder skills.
Any suggestions? Has anyone tried Bob Jones University Press (BJU Press), Pfeiffer House Music, or A Beka?
