Aligned to national music standards

Quaver lessons are completely aligned to National Coalition for Core Arts Standards (NCCAS), which are embedded in the lessons in each grade to create a comprehensive General Music curriculum. We have also laid out the Enduring Understandings and Essential Questions tied to each related artistic focus (Creating, Performing, Responding, Connecting) for each grade.

State Standards and Correlations

In addition, we have worked with teachers and administrations across the country to develop various levels of content that address specific state and district standards:

  • In many states, we’ve created a Custom State Curriculum to align to specific state standards.
  • In other states, we’ve developed State Standard Crosswalks to show how our standard curriculum works with state standards.
  • Finally, in large district implementations, we’ve partnered with curriculum teams to develop content to meet district needs.
