PSG Friday: Teaching Notation


Notes from virtual conversation February 18, 2022; How can we effectively teach non-notated music to students with differing aural skills? What are the advantages and disadvantages of teaching notated music to non-majors, and what are the most effective, supportive techniques for using notation in non-major classes? Discussion questions include:

  1. How do we teach notated music to students without notational literacy
  2. How do you talk with notationally literate students about the problems with notation?
  3. How do you get music theoretically well-versed students to talk about music that requires a terminology from outside the Western classical tradition?
