Facing the Music

Huib Schippers

Oxford University Press

Taking into consideration the form and content of various forms of music and the interaction between learner and teacher, this chapter explores tangible and less tangible aspects of music that are considered the essential skill base for musicians in various cultures. Juxtaposing Western art music with African musics, Indian court music, and village gamelans, it demonstrates that there are vast differences in approaches and priorities, which resonate in systems of music education. This ranges from tangible aspects such as repertoire and performance practice; (explicit or implicit) theories; creativity and expression; and the culture and values underlying any music practice. It goes on to examine how these aspects of music are learned or transmitted: with or without notation, atomistic or holistic, with emphasis on tangible or intangible aspects?

Keywords:   teaching, learning, notation, atomistic, holistic, intangibles, constructivism
