SPA MUSIC CURRICULUM


CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK
Music occupies a very important role in Philippine society. Its function is well entrenched in the various occasions and festivals and in the day
to day activities of households. Music is used as a means to express and convey messages to members of the community. In the Philippine context,
there is no direct translation for the word music but there is a multitude of words relating to music which describe song forms, musical instruments,
and processes. This just means that music is more than just an abstraction as it is found in the everyday experiences of the people.
The SPA music curriculum focuses on four threads which at the end of the program will equip the learner as an engaged artist in the field of
music: 1. music as borne of the expression of the self as seen in the Filipino tales, epics, rituals, and festivals;

2. music as a community resource

rooted in the natural, tangible, and intangible heritage of the people; 3. music as an continuing expression of the peoples history and; 4. music as a
contextualized reality from the local to global perspectives in the contemporary times.
Along with four threads, the curriculum will develop the learners knowledge, appreciation, and skills in music using the seven building blocks
of music distributed across the curriculum (Philosophy of Music; Overview of Music; Music Elements and Concepts; Music Processes and Skills;
Musical Instruments; Music Genre and Styles; People of Music). The SPA program is a spiraling program, grounded on performance-based learning.
At the end of the program the learners will have gained the basic and intermediate skills in music which will prepare them for a career and/or higher
education in music and other art disciplines.
The philosophical foundations upon which standards and competencies are based on are aligned with the regular K-12 program for music
and the arts. These include among others, the following sources: A Process of Education by Jerome Bruner, Performance-Based Learning by
Cleve Miller, Aesthetic Education by Bennett Reimer, Praxial Music Education by David Elliott, Multiple Intelligences by Howard Gardner, A
Structure for Music Education by Ronald Thomas, Gongs and Bamboo by Jose Maceda, Compendium on the Humanities: Musical Arts produced
by the National Research Council of the Philippines, Dictionary of Filipino Musical Terms produced by the UP Center for Ethnomusicology, Content
Standards from the National Standards for Arts Education by Music Educators National Conference (MENC), Integrating Music Throughout the
2

Curriculum by Claudia Cornett, Cultural Dictionary for Filipinos by Thelma Kintanar and Associates, Creative and Mental Growth by Viktor
Lowenfeld and W. Lambert Brittain, Discipline-Based Art Education by Elliot Eisner, Encyclopedia of Philippine Arts and Tuklas Sining, both
produced by the Cultural Center of the Philippines, and Malikhaing Guro by ARTISTS, Inc.

SPA MUSIC CURRICULUM


PHILOSOPHY AND RATIONALE FOR MUSIC EDUCATION
Source: K-10 Philosophy and Rationale for Music Education
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 diversehaving 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 mans individual quest for self-expression and
fulfillment.
On 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
3

the skills that enable the application of the learners 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 thoughts
about contemporary general education. We envision that Music in the K-10 Program will effectively nurture and refine the learners 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.
