Using Informal Education through Music Video Creation
Cayari, Christopher
General Music Today, v27 n3 p17-22 Apr 2014
Music video creation provides students a new way to express themselves and become better performers and consumers of media. This article provides a new perspective on Lucy Green's informal music pedagogy by enabling students to create music videos in music classrooms; thus, students are able to create music videos that informally develop skills in music and technology. The author offers his own experiences as a junior high and high school ensemble director and general music teacher that led to his students engaging technology in new ways both inside and outside the classroom. Video sharing websites such as YouTube have provided a new way for musicians to create and distribute their art, and by encouraging students to create music videos, students have the potential to learn lifelong music making skills. Practical advice on how to embark on a music video project is provided, and project outcomes are reported.
