What resources can you suggest for teaching music appreciation in High school?
One resource I’ve used is The Story of Christian Music by Andrew Wilson-Dixon.
It’s basically an overview of major Christian traditions of worship. from Gregorian chant to the present.
It does well in helping students understand the context and traditions from which the variety of hymns in a typical hymnal have been birthed.
I’m thinking the new Grade 8 (?) music curriculum put out by Rod and Staff has a nice dose of music appreciation-type materials in it, along with rudiments and all. When I looked through it, it looked like a worthwhile course.
