The Creative Music Curriculum for Pre-Primary School
This paper examines the multi-faceted nature of pre-primary music teachers' and supervisors' beliefs and practices in music education. It focuses on general process of creativity (particularly as applied to music education); the classroom setting and how this influences the way music educators approach teaching and learning; and; the structuring of musical curricula to encourage higher levels of musical thinking in children. The paper recommends that regular formal training opportunities in a creative music curriculum should be made available, to equip teachers with necessary skills to integrate music into their current curriculum and to improve the quality of education.
