Developing a Listening Library of Amercian Music

December 1, 1992 / By: Jody Osman Abboud

The purpose of this capstone project, "Developing a Listening Library of American Music," is to create directed listening opportunities for elementary students. In reality, most students will eventually become music listeners and appreciators rather than performers. Therefore, the more listening opportunities they are afforded they are afforded at a young, impressionable age, the greater the likelihood of their enjoying a broader variety of musical styles as they mature.
