MUSEP 2001 - Music Education and Pedagogy 2A

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2016

The course information on this page is being finalised for 2016. Please check again before classes commence.

This course begins with a focus on the creative processes of improvisation and composition, and will include practical creative activities. Relevant research literature will highlight the role of improvisation and composition in music learning, both in the development of musical understanding and in the acquisition of practical skills. Psychological principles, particularly with regard to motivation and practising, will be further explored. There will be an introduction to the widely known music teaching and learning methodologies, including the Dalcroze, Orff, Kodaly, Suzuki and Yamaha approaches. Students will increase their knowledge of relevant teaching resources and also begin developing their own teaching materials.
