Teaching General Music in the Digital Age

Teaching General Music in the Digital Age

(p.327) Chapter Fifteen Teaching General Music in the Digital Age
Teaching General Music

Ann Clements

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses secondary general music practices in the digital age. Using the analogy of analog and digital signaling, it provides theoretical arguments for why transmission practices in traditional schooling do not work adequately in the digital age. Among the arguments provided are traditional schooling’s difficulties overcoming issues of habituation, frozen and prescriptive policy, closed environments, overaccreditation, antiquated administrative models, and inequities at various levels. The dysfunctions of traditional schooling are then compared to the freedoms afforded through modern learning in the digital age, as it commonly occurs outside of schooling. Models presented include the hacking of a musical education through open sources in digital spaces and student empowerment and ownership of their own learning through optimization, customization, and collaboration of both content and approach.

Keywords:   secondary general music, modern learning, traditional schooling, policy, optimization, customization, collaboration, hacking, open sources, digital age
