MUSIC IN MUNICIPAL PUBLIC SCHOOLS OF RIO GRANDE DO SUL
ABSTRACT This research investigated music in municipal public schools of Rio Grande do Sul. The methodological design used included a quantitative approach, an intersectional survey method at large scale, and self-administered questionnaires for collecting data. In order to analyze the data, a content analysis was performed, taking as reference concepts of music education based on education legislation and the policy cycle approach. As a result, it was found that in spite of the applicable law and the existence of some music activities in schools, there is still a struggle for effectively implementing music education in the state.
