Curriculum development is regarded as an integral part of educational planning and therefore as subordinate to the overall planning objectives of the educational system. There has been a growing awareness among the Nigerian Music Educators of the importance of the relevance of the Music Curriculum contents to the societal aspirations. In view of this, this paper takes critical examinations of the music curriculum process and how it might best be directed and guided as a tool for musical educational changes in the society. The study adopted a qualitative descriptive and prescribed guideline in order to bridge the gap between the curriculum developer’s ideas and the reality of what happens in the school and the larger society. The paper concluded that changes in the curriculum need a more research, better organized study and participatory approach.
