The Operationalization of Music Teaching in Basic Education: A Documentary Research at the Municipal Education Council of Porto Alegre/Brazil

Cristina Rolim Wolffenbüttel


The teaching of music in Brazilian schools has come a long way, going through insertion and exclusion moments. These processes can be analyzed based on the actions of the education councils that, according to Resolution CNE/CEB No. 2/2016, have an important role, as they are consultative, normative, supervisory and deliberative bodies of the education system. Based on these assumptions, this article presents the research that investigated the performance of the Municipal Council of Education of Porto Alegre, state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, based on the documents drawn up by it. The methodology was structured in a qualitative approach, using documental research as a method, and in the use of document collection and Internet research as techniques for data collection. Data analysis took place through the use of content analysis, having the theoretical frameworks structured in educational policies, legislation, and concepts of music education. This research is relevant as it is considered appropriate to relate the existing legislation regarding the teaching of music in schools, the need for its consolidation in state and municipal bodies, through education councils, and to connect institutional bodies in this process. It is expected that with the results of this investigation it will be possible to strengthen the current legislation, encourage the elaboration of new laws, as well as to reiterate the importance of education councils for the effective insertion of music in schools.
