This project was to design and develop a model program in music orientation and skill development for Li-Gang Elementary School, Ping-Dong, Taiwan. To accomplish the purpose, a review of current literature regarding elementary-level music programs was conducted. The program emphasizes activities that will help music become a part of a child's overall development and education, and is based on the premise that music classes for young children should be "Fun with a Purpose" and "Learning by Doing". The program concentrates on four specific areas: listening to music, moving to music, singing and playing musical instruments. More specifically the musical concepts of melody, rhythm, form, tempo, and dynamics are addressed through a variety of methods and activities.
