Halick, Mary E.
General Music Today, v30 n1 p4-10 Oct 2016
Music teachers, who are working to develop students' musicianship skills, often focus on exposing students to new styles and genres of music. These initiatives encourage students to analyze, develop opinions, create, and perform music they may not normally hear. The purpose of this article is to introduce music educators to Electronic Dance Music (EDM) as a viable option for inclusion in the music education classroom. This article explores the following questions: "What is EDM?" and "What can you teach with EDM?" An EDM track list is also included, containing musical and contextual highlights, as well as suggestions for creating, performing, responding, and connecting with EDM. The suggestions are applicable to a variety of classroom environments as well as both progressive and traditional teaching philosophies.
