Abstract

The integration of disciplines in the school is not a new idea. Music is often brought into other classrooms. The same possibility exists in the music classroom. Integrating literature and music can help to strengthen musical concepts that are apparent in literature. Literature can broaden the students’ horizons and provide another technique for teaching. By bringing literature into the music classroom the teachers are able to accomplish their goal of teaching every child.
