Keywords: Music and education | Law 11.769/08 | Teacher education

The article discusses the education of music teachers, and the new challenges brought by the Law 11.769/08, and its imposition of musical education in elementary schools as part of the mandatory curriculum of the arts subject. The veto to the second article of this law, which foresaw the need of specifi c training to music teachers, revives the debate on the required training to the professional in charge of the musical teaching in these schools. Through case studies in schools of the Costa Verde Sul Fluminense, it was noticed that musical instruction was complementary to other subjects or a playful element devoid of any specifi c content knowledge, and that adds confusion to the conception about who should teach this subject. Despite the lack of human and specifi c material resources, such reality indicates the need for educative measures that qualify all the historical process in which musical education can be recognized as an area of specifi c knowledge. Thus, the article tries to emphasize that the Law 11.769/08 needs actions that turn it into a reality; for this to happen broader investigations of Brazilian school realities are necessary.
