Common teaching materials for singing, which are particular songs for generations set by the Ministry of Education in Japan, have been employed for the curriculum guideline. Since 1998, common teaching materials for appraising, which are particular pieces of music set by ministry of education, have not employed for the curriculum guideline. This change came about as a result of fewer music lessons being provided in Japanese schools; it was not because there was any question over the essential significance of the common teaching materials presented. We reviewed the significance of common teaching materials in a previous study. There, we examined how the Fate motif in Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony was dealt with in textbooks and teacher manuals. In the present study, we examined The Moldau by Smetana in the same way.
