4 Curriculum documents at times are issued in publications that include all the program guidelines for a certain grade level or even several grade levels. The document then may be designed so that each section is complete in itself as a description of objectives, instructional techniques, and resources for a specific subject area. Such a publication can be described as an omnibus curriculum document. Prince Edward Island's A Style for Every Child is an example of an omnibus document. We analysed each of the three music sections of this document as a distinct curriculum, and enumerated each section separately in our analysis.
5 CMERC is a network of music education researchers from across Canada. Established in 1989, it is located at the University of Toronto Faculty of Music. The Music Education Data Project was begun by Lee Bartel and Patricia Shand
in 1988 with financial support from the Institute for Canadian Music at the University of Toronto. The music curriculum document content analysis research described in this article is one of the main investigations of the Music Education Data Project, now under the auspices of CMERC.
6 We gratefully acknowledge the contributions made by David Melhorn-Boe, Angela Jones, Esther Leung, Bram Abramson, and students in the undergraduate and graduate classes in music education research during the 1990 fall term.
7 This number must be qualified by the fact that this document was issued for the province's anglophone school boards.
