Music is both an aural and a temporal art. All its elements, when interwoven in the highest artistic order, are likened into a -tapestry moving in time. The  global  weavings  of  this  tapestry  in  historical and  cultural  contexts  are  diverse –having  spurred  a  continued  metamorphosis  to  include  a  full  range  of purposes, functions, and identities, from the utilitarian to aesthetic.

However, the basic nature of music does not change.   In his book A Structure for Music Education, Ronald Thomas articulates that the nature of music is expressive, ongoing, and creative.   Through a language and medium of its own, music conveys ideas and feelings in a way that addresses the human spirit, and has great value in its communicative process.   Music, being responsive in interpreting contemporary times, is a continuing art.  Aaron Copland describes this characteristic as a continuous state of becoming.   Like the other arts, music is a creative avenue for man’s individual quest for self- expression and fulfillment.

Teachers GuideOn  these  basic  characteristics  are  founded  the  rationale  of  music  study.  A  keen  sensitivity  to  environmental  and  musical  sounds  needs  to  be developed. The student must learn to ―hear, ―speak, and ―think in the medium of music.   Simultaneously, growth and development in the skills that enable the application of the learner’s knowledge should be encouraged, through active involvement in the various musical processes.

Drawing  from  the  development  of  music  pedagogy  through  the  years,  the  K-10  Music  Curriculum embodies  the  best  practices  advocated  by  the SPIRAL,  MULTI-CULTURAL,  and  INTEGRATIVE approaches  in  music  education,  as  well  as current  philosophical  thought  about  contemporary  general education.

We envision that Music in the K-10 Program will effectively nurture and refine the learner’s artistic expression and cultural literacy, and celebrate his/her national heritage, while it instills, within every individual Filipino learner, pride in his/her own cultural identity.
