 Articles on Music and Literacy. An assortment of articles taken from MENC's State Music Educators Association Journals.
As music educators we ought to be grateful for, and knowledgeable about, three major developments in recent years that have strengthened our position in promoting music as a significant and research supported discipline that ought to be at the core of the curriculum.
Sometimes music teachers unwittingly limit their students to discrimination responses ("tell me which notes are higher-lower, louder-softer, longer-shorter," etc.) when they are equally adept at considering the more musical question of what sounds express, and using a variety of learning processes (singing, playing, dramatizing, illustrating) to demonstrate this sensitivity.
The study, developed by Powderhorn music instructor Elizabeth Olson as part of her master's thesis, suggests that it's not only students' test scores that can benefit from extra time spent in the music classroom: students' behavior and self-esteem may improve as well, with as little as 30 additional minutes of Kodály music instruction a week.

About this time, too, she made her first solo music hall appearance at the Middlesex, and shortly afterwards, in January 1908, she changed her name to Ida Barr for an engagement at the Bedford music hall, Camden Town.
She subsequently appeared in two further films: a musical entitled Laugh it Off (1940) with Tommy Trinder, and the comedy Let the People Sing with Alistair Sim, Fred Emney (junior) and Patricia Roc.

In addition to those changes in the words, it is notable that the poem was not always sung to the tune presented on this website ("Materna," composed by Samuel A. Ward in 1882, nearly a decade before the poem was written).
In fact, for two years after it was written it was sung to just about any popular or folk tune that would fit with the lyrics, with "Auld Lang Syne" being the most notable of those.
For example, in 1926 the National Federation of Music Clubs held a contest to put the poem to new, reportedly "less somber," music, but no other entry was determined to be more acceptable.
