Integrating Common Core into the Music Classroom

Integrating Common Core into the Music Classroom

Integrating Common Core Standards into the music classroom is an important (and often required) contribution to the school’s learning community. As music educators, we need to reexamine the music rehearsal to encompass all aspects of learning while simultaneously maintaining high-level, culminating performances. Integrating writing and reading skills into the rehearsal room is a common sense approach to including Common Core Standards that can deepen music learning and lead to expressive performances.
