High School Music Programs
Through sequenced instruction in music, Wicomico County hopes to instill in students knowledge of the world’s diverse musical and cultural heritage, a knowledge of music skills for experiencing our complex musical environment, and a foundation for future music experiences. The nature of music instruction relies heavily upon student participation and this is reflected in the curriculum. The curriculum guides are based upon, and align with, the Music Essential Learner Outcomes for the High School as stated by the Maryland State Department of Education. Through the materials in guides, the teacher is provided with the state outcomes, expectations, and indicators. Included is the scope and sequence of skills with suggested activities, and an appendix that includes a literature list and musical references.
