Observing a Yang Ch'in Lesson: Learning by Modeling and Metaphor.
Davidson, Lyle
Journal of Aesthetic Education, v23 n1 p85-99 Spr 1989
Describes a Chinese lesson during which the techniques for playing the yang-ch'in are taught. Discusses why Chinese teachers use rote instruction in music lessons and why they use poetry and nonmusical scenes as indicators of music's expressiveness. Compares this method of utilizing imitation with U.S. teaching techniques and relates it to educational theory. (KO)
