First Steps in Music, Revised
By: Margaret Swain  -  8/27/2020
GIA Music has recently released a revised edition of John Feierabend's popular First Steps in Music for Preschool and Beyond curriculum. Here's what you need to know if you already own these materials, or if you are interested in purchasing them for the first time.

Regarding the new materials GIA Music writes, "Over the past year, a committee formed by the Feierabend Association for Music Education (FAME) developed a set of standards for evaluating repertoire associated with the curriculum. With their guidance, we have removed several songs deemed to be harmful, derogatory, or disrespectful in regard to their histories or context. We have also added a number of new high-quality songs and rhymes from a variety of world cultures."

The following items from the First Steps in Music for Preschool and Beyond curriculum are being revised:

First Steps in Music for Preschool and Beyond: the Curriculum

The Book of Beginning Circle Games
The Book of Call and Response
The Book of Children's Songtales
The Book of Echo Songs
The Book of Fingerplays and Action Songs
The Book of Songs and Rhymes with Beat Motions

Old Joe Clark CD
Had a Little Rooster CD
There's a Hole in the Bucket CD

The following items will remain the same:

Keeping the Beat CD
The Book of Movement Exploration
The Book of Pitch Exploration

For those who already own these materials GIA is providing a supplement that lists the songs that have removed from the curriculum, as well as printed music for the materials that have been added. Download the official First Steps in Music for Preschool and Beyond supplement HERE.
