For music learning to occur, involvement must be combined with study. Music study procedures include defining, investigating, discriminating, analyzing, evaluating, organizing and associating. Successful study results in the formation of concepts about music and in improved skills in listening, reading, and performing. This building block approach is used throughout the program from Kindergarten through 8th grade.
