Since music is one of the main facets to a wholesome and happy life, it has been the consensus of the administrators of the Dallas Independent School District to plan a music education program that will enhance the musical growth of the students. It has been realized, that in music education, just in any other phase of education, apprehension and meaning will not be the same to all students because of the differences in maturation and understanding levels.

The music education program is not one that is thought of as only to supply music for special occasions, but it is treated as an integral part of the elementary school curriculum.

The purpose of this study was: 1. To emphasize the importance music education in the elementary school curriculum 2. To emphasize methods and procedures used in teaching music education on various class levels 3. To emphasize different interests, abilities, and capabilities of class divisions 4. To emphasize musical growth through musical experiences

The scope of this research will include the general overview of music education on each grade level in the Dallas School System.
