Abstract

The search for educational goals in music productions leads the teacher to a variety of sources for guidance: publications, workshops, and other teachers. None of these sources alone are adequate to the task. The need, then, is to bring together all of this information into one sourcebook. It is this sourcebook that the present study has endeavored to provide.

The purpose of this study has been to develop a sourcebook of practical information for the production of elementary musical dramas and programs and to provide general principles of production as a guide for music teachers. Criteria for creative environments which could lead to productions have been investigated and educational objectives have been established from related literature, from interviews with practicing teachers, and from personal experiences. From these three sources, general principles and specific suggestions for productions have been derived.
