Two of my children are currently attending junior high and both are taking "Guitar" as an option.  They both enjoy it very much and are getting to be pretty good at it. 

I am HIGHLY impressed that they are taught Beatles song as part of their Program :)   Between the two of them, they have learned "Yellow Submarine", "Hard Days Night" and "I Saw Her Standing There".  Those are just from the first year of the program, so not sure what lies ahead.  They are really proud to show Mom what Beatle songs they have learned too - lol! a-hard-days-night-george-10

Good to know some schools know to teach what is really important...like the Beatles! a-hard-days-night-george-10

Awesome heart Great they are teaching at a young level.

In my English Comp. II class in college a Beatles song was in my book and the teacher played it for us. It was to show us the different poetic lyrics through music. I think it was Eleanor Rigby, but I'm not entirely certain because its still the morning and brain is still not functioning. lol 

Then they appeared in Music Appreciation class book too; furthermore, he told us to bring in "modern" music for an assignment. Modern, meaning within then the last 50/60 years to now because we studied all the way back into chamber music of like the 1500s or so. I and another girl brought in The Beatles for our assignments. This is a music teacher that really does not know about modern music especially The Beatles which I was a little put off by. How can you be a music teacher and not know anything about The Beatles?

I can't believe you have a music teacher who does not know about the Beatles?!  I'd be put-off too!  Wow....

The teacher is probably a classical purist.

A couple of days ago, I wore a Beatles shirt to school and some kid saw it and said "THE BEATLES SUCK!" I asked him why, and he didn't have a response. Our music teacher tries to teach us about music from that period, but none of the kids pay attention because they think he's a hippie and is all weird. Oh well.

In Ireland, if you're doing music for your Leaving Cert (your final school exam which determines if you go to college) you study the Sgt.Pepper album but only the title track, When I'm 64 and She's Leaving Home. When I heard "When I'm 64" was on the list I just did a "...really?" kind of moment now I'm not saying "When I'm 64" is bad or anything but all the good songs on Sgt.Pepper and you pick THAT?!? Okay then... And if you do music for Junior Cert (the exam I'm doing now which is a pointless exam) you study "Yesterday". Obviously the people in the department who pick the songs are  massive Paul fans :/

We haven't done that much on The Beatles, or anyone else modern* for that matter. We once had to analyze 'Yesterday' (seems a popular choice), and the lyrics for 'Imagine' (kind of Beatles) and 'Let It Be' appeared early on in the book. We only do music from the 19th century backwards so I think it's great that there's a few schools out there where some kids are being taught about all types of music, including some of the brilliant stuff from the last few decades.

*modern in comparison to what we do

I'm in a choir at school, and we're singing a Beatles medley- Hello Goodbye, Ticket To Ride, Penny Lane, and Can't Buy Me Love.

At Junior High School (secondary school) we sometimes played acoustic guitar/sang "Let It Be" and "Can't Buy Me Love". Our english/music teacher used to play and sing to us. He was an adolescent back then (the 60's) and I'm glad he put som effort to showing us how great music used to be. He even let us watch Paul McCartney's "Back in the U.S." concert DVD.
