Arts and Music
The establishment of the junior high school as a division of the public school system has had a profound influence upon the instructional work of the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades. Music, along with other subjects, has had to establish itself in an organization still more or less in the experimental stages. The junior high school is the newest and least-understood unit of the modern school system, and this situation has been reflected in the problems of its music department. For musical development, this arrangement has been fortunate in some ways and unfortunate in others. The fortunate part is due to the fact that the ages are similar and there is more similarity of vocal material. The unfortunate part is that adequate material for this group has not been produced. The most frequently used music is of a type known as the SAB (Soprano, Alto, Bass) arrangement, providing for two unchanged voices and one in the process of changing known as the baritone.
