Throughout the course of the twentieth century, as newly formed nations sought ways to develop and formalise their national identity and acquire a range of identifiable national assets, we find new musical canons springing up across the world. But these canons are not arbitrary collections of works imposed on the public by the authorities. Rather they acquire deep resonance and meaning, both as national symbols and as musical repertoires imbued with aesthetic value. This book traces the formation of one such musical canon: the Twelve Muqam, a set of musical suites linked to the Uyghurs, who are one of China's minority nationalities, and culturally Central Asian Muslims. The book draws on Uyghur and Chinese language publications; interviews with musicians and musicologists; field, archive and commercial recordings, and aims towards an understanding of the Twelve Muqam as musical repertoire, juxtaposed with an understanding of the Twelve Muqam as a field of discourse. The book brings together several years' work in this field, but its core arises from a research project under the auspices of the AHRC Centre for Music Performance and Dance.
This core text is written for Early Childhood Education courses in Music and Movement, and the Creative Arts and Expression.
By balancing research coverage and theory with applied practice, this best-selling text covers the most current and comprehensive of topics while encouraging teachers to not only inspire young children to move with music, but be inspired themselves.
The seventh edition presents a comprehensive and up-to-date survey of professional research while continuing to provide links between theory and practice. Edwards encourages teachers and caregivers to attend to the importance of research and contemporary thought regarding music and movement education. At the same time, the narrative frames theoretical ideas in meaningful ways for the adult who has chosen teaching as a profession. The songs, ideas, suggestions, and music and movement concepts included are time-tested. Parents, teachers, student teachers, caregivers, and students have aided in compiling and assessing the contents of this edition. Musical concepts and activities appropriate for each age and grade level have been included to accompany some of the songs and rhythms. Movement and dance concepts are also presented in age-specific content.
