Simplifying Music, Nurturing Creativity, and Calming Things Down.
This paper addresses the simplification of music as a way to introduce all beginners to making music. Creative play is emphasized to encourage students to feel ownership of the music they create. Suggestions are given for improvisation to known songs with small guitars, ukuleles and dulcimers. The paper advocates a return to the roots of music where everyone was involved and where it became a process of spiritually connecting with all things in the present. (EH)
