The aim of this thesis is to give a suggested outline for a program of music for the junior-high department of music of the Dunbar Junior-Senior High School, Lubbock, Texas, that can be used by the writer and other persons who teach music fundamentals to the junior high students in this school.

In the preparation of this thesis, there are two limitations. First, this thesis deals only with music fundamentals to be taught in the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades. Second, it deals with units of instruction developed to meet the needs of the students in the IXinbar Junior-High School, and the units are planned for one semester with only one unit for each grade developed in detail to be used as a model for developing other units for each grade. The classes are designed to last sixty minutes, meeting twice a week.

The information for this thesis was secured from materials and information in the W.R.Banks Library, a music questionnaire, a tentative course of study for music for the Lubbock Public Junior-High Schools, Periodicals, and books.
