Abstract

Music education has many benefits in students’ lives including increases in student engagement, motivation, cognition, test scores, and academic achievement. However, cuts in creative arts funding has decreased music class offerings in some districts. As many believe music must remain in the K-12 curriculum, educators are looking for ways to effectively keep music education in the curriculum so students benefit from a well-rounded educational experience. Research shows that subject-integration can be a useful curricular approach. Therefore, a standard-based multiple-subject curriculum was designed to show how to effectively blend music and core subjects into a rich comprehensive learning experience for students.
