Unit Description
Details
1VMU01Responding
An individual’s musical taste is influenced by previous experiences (culture, family, community, education, religion, etc.). Students will verbally identify and describe musical elements like tempo, dynamics, instruments, rhythm, and form when listening to music examples.  Students will distinguish between quality and non-quality performances and describe personal responses.

1VMU02Performing
 Performance experiences are critical to the development of musicians. Vocal and instrumental performance skills encompass the tools needed to master, interpret, and produce a musical work. Performance skills are acquired when students rehearse and study music in preparation for culminating performances.

1VMU03Creating
Music composition is not an elite skill, but rather it is an artistic process that all students can engage in with guidance and support. Musicians generate and conceptualize ideas and work often through improvisation. Artistic ideas must be organized and developed. Musicians’ presentation of creative work is the culmination of a process of creation and communication.
1VMU04Connecting
Students will relate knowledge and personal experiences to make music. Musical ideas and works are studied in societal, cultural, and historical context to deepen understanding critical to growth as a young musician. The principles and subject matter of various disciplines outside the arts are interrelated with those of music to the processes of analysis, inquiry, and creativity used in mathematics, literature, and physical and/or social sciences. Moreover, the roles of creators, performers, and various vocations continually evolve in the production and presentation of the arts.
