1 A Music Curriculum for the Lutheran Elementary School Author: Dr. Edward H. Meyer, Professor of Music at Martin Luther College Here s what teachers are saying about Sing and Make Music: The lesson plans themselves are very clear, and could easily be understood and taught by a non-musician.... In fact, there are so many good ideas ready for use that teachers who otherwise avoided music class, might be inspired to devote more class time to it.... It is accessible to the non-specialist, very user-friendly, and presents the musical skills children need in a logical and appealing manner. Lutheran Education May/June 1999 Reviewer Susan Wente In the past, teaching music was difficult and haphazard because there was no standard curriculum to follow.... Now, if teachers use Sing and Make Music, students should be equipped to demonstrate a high level of musicality at the end of grade school. We are beginning to reap the reward of using Sing and Make Music and are allowing enough time in classroom schedules for an emphasis on music. This will certainly equip our students to be more proficient in the future, whether it be as a worshiper in the pew or as a classroom music teacher or choir director. The Lutheran Educator May 2001 From interviews with WELS teachers

2 Here are three reasons to make Sing and Make Music your music curriculum: detailed teacher s guides make these simple lessons easy to teach perfect for classroom teachers with limited musical background useful for teachers in both small and large schools Sing and Make Music can be used as a stand-alone music curriculum or as an enhancement to any standard music curriculum. In addition to teaching basic musical concepts, it also examines the music and liturgy of the church. Each level includes activities to teach students to appreciate music. Easy-to-Use Teacher s Guides Lesson notes and copy masters are housed between colorful tabs in convenient, sturdy three-ring binders. Functional indexes provide quick reference to unit contents, songs, and CD tracks. These all-inclusive guides enable teachers with limited musical ability to teach Sing and Make Music with ease. Lessons This music curriculum teaches both music listening and reading skills. Lessons in each level build upon one another from year to year. Songbooks Accompaniment and Student Editions Simple keyboard accompaniments help teachers with limited keyboard experience accompany their students. Student songbooks for levels two through five provide the words and music for all the supplementary songs. Contents include a variety of songs new and traditional, secular and sacred, and easy as well as challenging. Each level offers a wide variety of Christian hymns. Lessons can easily be adapted for use with any hymnal. Compact Discs Two sets of CDs provide accompaniments and supplementary music for Sing and Make Music. Lesson CDs contain unit lesson songs and listening activities. Songbook CDs contain all songs found in the songbook. The voice or accompaniment track can be used alone by adjusting the left-to-right balance control on your CD player or sound system. The teacher s guides list the digital CD track location for every song. Select and play a specific song quickly or create a custom, daily-lesson playlist.

3 Sing and Make Music Supplementary Recordings Each level of Sing and Make Music includes a unit on the classics. Recordings of the required compositions are available on various CDs from music stores, school-supply catalogs, or public libraries.
