EXPERIMENTS IN MUSICAL CREATIVITY, A REPORT OF PILOT PROJECTS SPONSORED BY THE CONTEMPORARY MUSIC PROJECT IN BALTIMORE, SAN DIEGO, AND FARMINGDALE.
Music Educators National Conference, Washington, DC.
THREE PILOT PROJECTS WERE CONDUCTED IN BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, AND FARMINGDALE, NEW YORK, WITH ELEMENTARY AND JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS. THE PROJECTS IN BALTIMORE AND SAN DIEGO PROVIDED INSERVICE SEMINARS FOR MUSIC TEACHERS ALONG WITH PILOT CLASSES IN DIFFERENT TYPES OF SCHOOLS. OBJECTIVES OF THESE TWO PROJECTS WERE PRESENTATION OF CONTEMPORARY MUSIC TO CHILDREN THROUGH SUITABLE APPROACHES, EXPERIMENTATION WITH CREATIVE MUSIC EXPERIENCES FOR CHILDREN, IDENTIFICATION OF CONTEMPORARY MUSIC APPROPRIATE AT SEVERAL GRADE LEVELS, PROVISION THROUGH CONTEMPORARY MUSIC OF NEW MEANS OF CREATIVE EXPERIENCING, AND INSERVICE EDUCATION OF TEACHERS. THE PILOT PROJECT IN FARMINGDALE WAS DESIGNED TO DEMONSTRATE TWO TYPES OF CREATIVE TEACHING--EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES IN MUSIC COMPOSITION USING 20TH CENTURY IDIOMS AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF MUSICAL RESOURCES THROUGH RHYTHMICS, SINGING, IMPROVISATION, AND COMPOSITION. THE INTEREST AND MOTIVATION WHICH RESULTED ON THE PART OF TEACHERS AND PUPILS WERE VIEWED AS SUPPORTING THE PREMISE THAT CHILDREN ARE RECEPTIVE TO CONTEMPORARY MUSIC AND ARE CAPABLE OF EMPLOYING CONTEMPORARY TECHNIQUES IN CREATIVE ACTIVITIES. RECORDINGS OF SOME OF THE CONTEMPORARY MUSIC USED IN THE PROJECTS ARE LISTED. THIS DOCUMENT AS PUBLISHED BY THE MUSIC EDUCATORS NATIONAL CONFERENCE, 1201 16TH STREET, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036.
