Abstract


The initial material used in developing basic music literacy among younger elementary school children (learning to assign pitch and the primary types of rhythm) are folk songs of the area in which the teaching process is taking place. According to the requirements of Music Literacy Methodology, preparation for sight-singing and sight-singing are performed based on songs the children already know, whereas mastering sight-singing involves the use of unknown material. With the aim of creating a conceptual framework of developing music literacy in the area of Novi Pazar, it was necessary to determine which songs that meet the methodological requirements children know and which of them they do not know.

            The aim of the research was to establish a basis for selecting music material for assigning pitch and learning primary types of rhythm based on the cultural heritage of the children living in the multi-cultural area of Novi Pazar. Data collection was performed by the means of testing technique and test analysis, whereas the results were interpreted by the descriptive method. The research has shown which songs of the area of Novi Pazar, which meet the methodological requirements, the children know (as many as 79.54% of the songs), and this gave to us the starting point for creating a conceptual framework for developing basic musical literacy within it.
