An Approach to Chinese-English Bilingual Music Education
Ward, Lisa-Jane
Victorian Journal of Music Education, n1 p11-16 2014
Music departments in Chinese universities incorporate Western musicology and instruments as part of their undergraduate or graduate courses (or both). However, many of these students may have had limited exposure to Western classical music and English, as a medium of communication. Furthermore, these courses are predominantly offered in Chinese. This article suggests that only a bilingual approach to teaching can help these students participate in global music making and research. In this way, the language and cultural divide which exists between Chinese mainland students and the West can be narrowed to facilitate cross-cultural learning.
