Sicherl-Kafol, Barbara; Denac, Olga
Online Submission, US-China Education Review v8 n2 p129-136 Feb 2011
This study presents an example of a music workshop which brought together pupils and students of different music schools, students of musicology, composition and classroom teaching, teachers, professors and composer on the common topics in contemporary music. The purpose of the workshop was to encourage an active and creative participation of everybody involved in a way that went beyond the usual practice used in cultural activities in education. In this respect, the workshop emphasised the importance of the creative expression of experience, ideas and emotions in the field of music. The results of the interview, which were conducted by some of the workshop participants, point out the complex occurrence of various indicators, which at the level of personal and social factors have determined the nature of communication through contemporary music and indirectly influenced the development of competence in cultural awareness and expression. Challenges identified included students' lack of musical experiences for contemporary music at all educational levels, the low priority given to contemporary music in schools as well as teachers' lack of professional knowledge in this field. The study highlights the need for more experience in contemporary musical language in general and music professional schools. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
