Rescuing Tradition At The Pierre Verger Cultural Space: Teaching And Learning Afro-Brazilian Culture Through Music In Brazil, João Carlos Junqueira 2010 University of Colorado at Boulder

Rescuing Tradition At The Pierre Verger Cultural Space: Teaching And Learning Afro-Brazilian Culture Through Music In Brazil, João Carlos Junqueira

Musicology Graduate Theses & Dissertations

This study investigates how the Pierre Verger Cultural Space (PVCS), an educational organization dedicated to teaching Afro-Brazilian culture in Bahia, uses music to construct a sense of Afro-Brazilian self. Located in a poverty-stricken neighborhood of Salvador, Bahia, the PVCS sees its mission as “rescuing” (resgatar) an Afro-Brazilian sense of identity and it promotes a sense of self based on African descent that can contribute to the possibility of greater social inclusion among marginalized Afro-Brazilian youth. Learning music is an essential part of this rescuing mission. Based on fieldwork conducted in Bahia between 2007 and 2009, this dissertation describes how the ...

Preservice Elementary Classroom Teachers’ Attitudes Toward Music In The School Curriculum And Teaching Music, Christopher J. Della Pietra, Sara Bidner, Thomas A. Devaney 2010 Santa Cruz, California

Preservice Elementary Classroom Teachers’ Attitudes Toward Music In The School Curriculum And Teaching Music, Christopher J. Della Pietra, Sara Bidner, Thomas A. Devaney

Research & Issues in Music Education

The purpose of this study was to determine the attitudes of preservice elementary education classroom teachers toward teaching music and the importance of music in the school curriculum as they prepare to enter the field in an era of high stakes testing, state standards, and accountability. More specifically, responses to twenty-nine statements were used to determine attitudes toward the following three constructs: (a) academic and social benefits of music education, (b) inclusion of music in the curriculum, and (c) comfort in teaching and leading music in the classroom. The survey instrument was a modified version of that used by Lewis ...

From The Editor's Desk, Jeremy C. Baguyos

Music Faculty Publications

I first joined the ISB as a student member at the urging of Charles Hoag, one of my bass teachers when I was growing up in Kansas. For me, the most important benefit of TSB membership was the ISB's journal. Back in those days when the primary tools for research were card catalogs and the RILM Abstracts, I couldn't just do a Google search on the keywords "double bass" to learn more about my instrument and other bassists. The journal of the International Society of Bassists, presently titled Bass World, was my only link to the national and ...

Beyond The Myth Of East-West Hybridity: An Analysis Of Lou Harrison's Works For Gamelan And Western Instruments, Rachel Elizabeth Chacko 2010 University of Colorado at Boulder

Beyond The Myth Of East-West Hybridity: An Analysis Of Lou Harrison's Works For Gamelan And Western Instruments, Rachel Elizabeth Chacko

Music Theory Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Frequently cited as being among Lou Harrison’s most important East-West fusions, the works for Indonesian gamelan and Western instruments have served as emblems of Harrison’s distinctive transcultural voice. Yet, as my research shows, treating these pieces as hybrids between East and West creates a limited frame for understanding Harrison’s compositional interests. While these pieces outwardly display his life-long interest in Asian musics and his penchant for combining disparate musical styles within a single composition, hidden beneath this timbral juxtaposition lies a compositional complexity far more essential to Harrison’s creative process. More than blending East and West ...

Faculty Works: Music Therapy

This study explores what occurred between a mother and her son with high-functioning autism who were seen for 24 sessions at the Nordoff-Robbins Center for Music Therapy at New York University. This was the first time that a parent and child had been seen in music therapy sessions at the center in which the parent was an active participant. The study was conducted one and one-half years after the sessions had concluded. The prima-ry data sources included the 24 sessions on videotape, transcripts from interviews with the mother and each therapist, therapist index sheets and notes, treatment summary re-ports, and ...

Space Age Love Song: The Mix Tape In A Digital Universe, Megan M. Carpenter 2010 University of New Hampshire School of Law

Space Age Love Song: The Mix Tape In A Digital Universe, Megan M. Carpenter

Law Faculty Scholarship

Music sharing is one of the most controversial topics in copyright law. And mix tapes have been the classic, iconic form of music sharing for the last 30 years. Even in the face of technological development so rapid and far-reaching as to remove the literal “tape” from “mix tape,” there are nonetheless modern incarnations that crop up on a regular basis, from mix CDs to mix-sharing websites. Social norms permit and even encourage the creation of these modern mix tapes for such diverse reasons as wedding favors and birthday gifts.

If copyright law is meant to promote creativity and proscribe ...

Intonation And Compensation Of Fretted String Instruments, Gabriele U. Varieschi, Christina M. Gower 2010 Loyola Marymount University

Intonation And Compensation Of Fretted String Instruments, Gabriele U. Varieschi, Christina M. Gower

Physics Faculty Works

We discuss theoretical and physical models that are useful for analyzing the intonation of musical instruments such as guitars and mandolins and can be used to improve the tuning on these instruments. The placement of frets on the fingerboard is designed according to mathematical rules and the assumption of an ideal string. The analysis becomes more complicated when we include the effects of deformation of the string and inharmonicity due to other string characteristics. As a consequence, perfect intonation of all the notes on the instrument cannot be achieved, but complex compensation procedures can be introduced to minimize the problem ...
