Rarely are researches discussing about a theme-based music education intended for elementary school students found. The research on this topic, nonetheless, is particularly important to reveal whether or not the practice currently implemented by primary school teachers have met the principles of effective thematic lesson. This research is purposed to figure out the themes and songs along with dominant teaching method and teaching media utilized by teachers in the theme-based lessons. This research employs a mixed method research design. The results yielded by this research show that only a quarter of teachers (25%) have attempted to teach the entire lesson themes embedded in the Curriculum of 2013. Even though there are few irrelevant songs that teachers integrated into the lessons, majority of them have adhered to the lesson themes mandated by the curriculum. Additionally, cooperative learning is accounted for 57.9% of preferred teaching method by the teachers, while an individual learning (lecture) makes up the smallest proportion of teaching method used (12.3%). As for the teaching media employed, the three- top selected teaching media include book (69.73%), hand phone (60.5%), and computer (57.9%). Finally, a number of suggestions are addressed to the education practitioners and other related stakeholders about a more rigorous execution of a theme-based music education for primary schools.
