Techniques for Exploring Why and How Music Matters

(p.191) Chapter 10 Embodied Pedagogy
College Music Curricula for a New Century

Sonia Tamar Seeman

Oxford University Press

Ethnomusicological methods and perspectives provide important contributions to twenty-first-century music pedagogy. In this chapter I make a number of claims regarding (1) the effective teaching of music and what it entails; (2) how heightening awareness of the gap between far and near may be most effectively addressed; and (3) how effective enactment of these teaching goals may aid student engagement with issues in the outside world. I offer three case studies to illustrate the techniques I lay claim to. I conclude with a description of core curriculum reforms at the Austin branch of the University of Texas, reforms that embody these and related pedagogical techniques, and reflect on the consequences of their implementation.

Keywords:   curriculum reform, embodied pedagogy, ethnomusicology, far-experience, near-experience
