MUSIC GRADE LEVEL EXPECTATIONS

The Music Grade Level Expectations (GLEs) represent content that Missouri students are expected to know at each grade level. The GLEs
are not a curriculum. They are, however, the learner outcomes that should be assessed at the local level to appraise student achievement.
The GLEs should not be taught in isolation. Rather, they should be bundled together where possible into well-planned, sequential, and
targeted lessons to accomplish district objectives to meet the Show-Me Standards.

Alignment to the Missouri Show-Me Content standards is found in the row titled “State Standards.” The row titled “National Standards”
refers to the nine standards from MENC: The National Association for Music Education.

The following coding system should be used to reference the Music GLEs:

STRANDS:
PP = Product/Performance
EP = Elements and Principles of Music
AP = Artistic Perceptions
IC = Interdisciplinary Connections
HC = Historic and Cultural Contexts

BIG IDEAS:
Use the numeral preceding the Big Idea

CONCEPTS:
Use the capital letter designation

EX: The GLE “identify standard pitch notation in the treble clef” can be found in the Elements of Music strand (EP), under the first Big Idea
– Develop and apply the knowledge and skills to read and notate music (1), in the concept Melodic Notation (A), in grade 4. Therefore, the
code for that particular GLE is: EP1A4. Generally avoid the use of periods or dashes in the coding.
