Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Young children are innately musical and songs are central to their musical cultures. This poster provides an overview of key issues in a study of young children’s engagement with songs. The study combines creative work, ethnography and arts-based research to trace the life of a group of children’s songs composed by the researcher as they become part of the existing musical and social cultures of a child care centre in western Sydney. Central to the methodology are three Rs. The first is relationships – between children and songs, between researcher and children. The second is reflection – by the researcher alone and in collaboration with children, on her role, interactions and data. The third is reciprocity – the recognition that research has an impact on the community being studied, and that the researcher has an ethical obligation to work towards conferring benefits on that community in return for the professional and personal benefits she will achieve through the research. In this study these three Rs all focus around music – relationships developed through the sharing of songs, reflection on those songs, and reciprocity through the gift to the researcher of deeper understanding of children’s relationship with songs and the gift to the centre of songs specially composed and aural and visual forms of documentation of the songs and the research data and findings.
