Musical Cultures and their application in daily lessons

Course description

Course overview and purpose:
The acquisition of musical abilities within general education is today a requirement as necessary as any other aspect of knowledge.
Music, in addition to its socializing and emotional capacity, provides essential elements for the development of rational and scientific thought. From praxis, this course aims to provide participants with the necessary conceptual and technical tools for a collective and participatory music teaching. The use of the body and language, improvisation and creativity, listening and sensitization, will be our main instruments.

Learning outcomes:

  • Demonstrate the understanding and use of public performance as a means for engaging communities, creating cultural awareness, and providing ethical leadership.
  • Be able to create, analyse, and synthesize different music as a means of supporting developing careers in music teaching.
  • Be able to recognize, classify, and interpret a common body of basic repertoire and by written and oral means.
  • Be able to demonstrate teaching skills for individual studio and group settings for teaching and audience education purposes.
  • Understand tools and methods used in musical research for being able to analyse sources accurately and critically.
  • Demonstrate a broad understanding of musical materials and styles both as categories of musical education.
  • Demonstrate competence as a teacher on the chosen instrument both in solo and ensemble repertoire.
