Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to investigate if the students’ preference and emotions of classical music will be different throughout movie music experiences or not, and to determine what’s the students’ emotions while listening. The researcher selected the film “Together” directed by Kaige Chen and used this film’s underscore (the third movement of “Scottish Fantasia” composed by Bruch). Participants (N=79) were selected from two classes from one vocational high school: students from one of the classes previewed the film, and the others didn’t. After the movie session, all participants were asked to listen the third movement of “Scottish Fantasia,” and answered the questionnaire related to their preference and emotions.

There were three questions in the questionnaire. The first question asked students to indicate preference on a 10-point semantic differential scale (dislike/like). The second question asked students to check their emotions while listening the music on a checklist revised from the emotions tree of music textbook, include 24 emotional adjectives. The last question was open-ended question for participants to describe their feeling about the music.

Results showed no significant difference in preference between the two classes. However, the film group had more emotional response (N=24) than non-film group (N=21). The major emotions of film group were “elegant” (n=22), “peaceful” (n=16), and “noble” (n=15); and the major emotions of non-film group were “elegant” (n=28), “tender” (n=22), and “lyric” (n=21). The future study would select more participants or different elements such as a film with actors familiar and/or preferred by students to determine is there any differences in preference and emotions.
