 Pathways to Learning and Teaching indigenous and world music Ensembles

Show Summary Details


This article, which explores ensemble teaching models using the learning experiences of the Monash University World Music Orchestra (Australia) as an example, discusses both indigenous and world music in an ensemble setting. It also includes definitive processes for teaching both indigenous and world music ensembles, an investigation of teaching and learning challenges, and solutions for teachers. Learning and teaching principles and methods that facilitate multiple approaches toward the acquisition of skills and knowledge are discussed in an ordered teaching plan. Challenges, strategies, and solutions are central to the analysis, and use case studies as a guide.
