OVERVIEW

The course introduces the student in the language of music and also deepens a historical journey

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course provides a series of practical and theoretical training and suggests some strategies for a basic music literacy aimed at teaching.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The primary objective is to provide future teachers with a knowledge base that allows them to deal with music in the classroom in a conscious and non-amateur way, as often happens. At the same time, stimulate to know the history of music by inserting it in the more general historical-cultural context.

TEACHING METHODS

The course includes lectures, watching music videos and direct knowledge of the instruments with the intervention in the classroom for various musicians of the Conservatory

 

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The program includes two in-depth sectors that will be treated in parallel: the first of a theoretical-didactic nature of knowledge of musical grammar; the second to historical address.

Part I - Music theory

Notes on teaching music; sound and its qualities; the production, reflection and transmission of sound; the notation (history and current notation); the rhythm (solfeggi in 2/4, 3/4, 4/4); intervals, alterations, tones and semitones; the major scales; the tonalities; the classification of instruments and the orchestra; the human voice.
