An important law of learning states that learning companied by pleasant associations tends to be remembered longer than learning accompanied by unpleasant associations. Thus, it behooves the classroom teacher to strive to set the stage for learning amid pleasant associations. ac- Music, with its wealth of songs and many other types of activities, furnishes a pleasant accompaniment for learning as well as a medium for the enrichment of classroom experiences.
Repeated inquiries from teachers of music in the public school, system point to the conclusion that general educators and music educators are concerned with the problem of bringing musical experiences into harmony with the whole growth of the individual child. Both the curriculum of daily activities and underlying courses of study in music in a program must develop out of the character and needs of the children whom it is to serve.
