Common Core Standards for MUSIC

The Common Core in English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects, include the arts, music, visual arts, dance and theatre, as “technical subjects” and are designed to work in tandem with the existing California VAPA standards.   What is a “technical subject” within the Common Core initiative? Technical subjects – A course devoted to a practical study, such as engineering, technology, design, business, or other workforce-related subject; a technical aspect of a wider field of study, such as art or music. The arts continue to also be considered an “academic” course of study, as in all arts classes it is the combination of the academic and the technical learning that creates powerful learning for students.
