It is generally recognized and accepted that music is a vital part of a child's education. The Music Educators National Conference stated in "The Child's Bill of Rights in Music":
Every child has the right to full and free opportunity to explore and develop his capacities in the field of music in such ways as may bring him happiness and a sense of well-being.
It is impossible to deal with all aspects of elementary music education in a single presentation; consequently, this thesis is directed toward a specific need in a particular school district, namely the Vallecito Union School District.
In the Vallecito Union School District there is no district-wide plan for classroom music instruction. Music is taught by classroom teachers with little expertise in the field of music. This plan, offering a balanced program with variety, will enable a teacher to present musical concepts to children in five areas of instruction: singing, listening, moving, playing and notation.
