This Unit of Study addresses the nature of teaching music in a senior secondary school context (Years 11-12, Stage 6) and contributes to preparing students for a career in the challenging field of music education. Current NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Music 1 and Music 2 (plus Extension) Course syllabuses are analysed, approaches to music curriculum construction are discussed, and contrasting pedagogical theories are examined. Technology and media issues related to music education are addressed, and special emphasis is placed on resource selection and development. These components are studied in the broader context of creating and managing a vital classroom learning environment and the fostering of self-motivated learners.
