Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop ratings by National Association of Schools of Music member institutions of competencies for an undergraduate curriculum in music education. Competencies were limited to the cognitive aspects of basic musicianship, applied music, and music education methods. Competencies in general education, professional education (including student teaching), music ensembles, and competencies in the affective and psychomotor domains were excluded. Testing conditions and criteria also were excluded. A questionnaire composed of 99 competencies was mailed to each of the NASM schools believed to offer undergraduate degrees in music education. The respondents were asked to indicate their opinion of the value of each competency by rating it on a scale from one (low) to five (high). The result of the study is a list of 84 competencies with a mean rating of 3.5 or higher. © 1978, SAGE Publications. All rights reserved.
