Unit of study_

Non Western Music - MUED1004

Year - 2018

Music educators today must be equipped to teach from a perspective that acknowledges the cultural dimensions of music. Contributing to the development of such a perspective, this unit of study provides students with the opportunity to encounter a musical culture and nonfamiliar music system through direct practical experience, and to consider the implications this presents for teaching and learning. Issues including methodologies of teaching, learning and research; ethical considerations; and the availability and applications of resources are covered in the unit. In some years this unit may be offered in a field location.
