The purpose of this study was to determine whether elementary music teachers in United States of America (U.S.) believe that they were prepared in their undergraduate studies for implementing the National Standards for Music Education and to find out what courses music education faculty at higher education institutions in the U.S. believe enable or should enable implementation of the standards. Electronic, world wide web-based surveys were completed by teachers at randomly selected NASM accredited colleges and universities concerning undergraduate preparation in the grade level category--K – 4. Data were reported in this category including results of the e-mail survey question answered by U. S. elementary school music teachers who were members of MENC (MENC-the National Association for Music Education).
