Abstract: Indian music is the music of the Indian subcontinent. It is the music of India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Maldives and Bangladesh. Indian music has two branches, North Indian or Hindustani music and South Indian or Carnatic music. Carnatic music is practiced in the four South Indian states of Karnataka, Tamil Nad, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh. An increasing number of nations now connect with each other through the travel, internet, television and radio. Cultures and traditions are subject to pervading global influences. Indian music with its evocative melodies and rhythms, is gaining popularity all around the world. Indian music, with its roots steeped in antiquity is complex and intricate, but now, more than ever before, it is accessible even in the elementary classroom. Melody and rhythm are the fundamental concepts of most musical traditions. In this workshop, participants explore these concepts in Indian music through movement, song and speech percussion pieces. The workshop aims to provide music educators with concrete lesson ideas that will be effective in the music classroom. The focus of the workshop will be on the music and dances of the Indian subcontinent. The religious practices in the region greatly influence the music. Hence the festivals of Ramadan and Diwali will be discussed. Participants will be led through the teaching process of Dandiya (stick) dances, and Orff arrangements of Ramadan and Diwali percussion pieces, songs and dances. All of the above pieces maybe integrated successfully in any performance that celebrates diversity. Each piece will be presented using the Orff processes of movement, body percussion, and performing on Orff instruments. Participants will be provided with handouts that include lesson plans on introducing Indian Music in the General Music classroom and sheet music and Orff arrangements of the songs.

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.

Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: Old Time music is one of the oldest forms of traditional folk music in North America, geographically tied to Appalachia. Traditionally people learned Old Time music from friends or relatives and later, through attending local jam sessions and festivals. With the advent of the Internet however, Old Time music has become accessible to any learner in any geographical locale with a URL connection. The Sugar in the Gourd (SITG) website ( is a primary congregating space of the online Old Time community. The purpose of this paper is to explore the music teaching and learning in the Old Time music online community.

I joined the SITG forum in December 2007 initially participating as an observing non-poster, gaining first insights of member interactions. In July 2009, I began posting on the SITG forum in order to become an active participant-observer for the purposes of this research. Following Hines (2000) and Lysloff (2003), I interviewed participants – members of the SITG forum – online, through chat rooms, e-mail, and bulletin boards.

Questions I ask in this paper include: What compels participants to participate in the Old Time online music community? What factors do participants perceive as significant about their online learning? Do learners perceive online music learning differently from offline music learning? What technologies do learners use and how are learners modifying them to fit their needs?
