Music is an important thread in the fabric of the social world. It is a form of social interaction; one amongst many forms which concatenate, interpenetrating and overlapping in the ongoing process which generates, reproduces and transforms our societies in their various local, national and global manifestations.
Music at BGSIAS is taught as a social–cultural and creative. The ultimate goal of music imparted is growth to learners. Music is related to creating opportunities of interaction, developing potentialities and transforming creative talents to possibilities in everyday life by participating in activities such as music listening, composing, and performing.
Music is related to creating opportunities for interaction, developing potentialities and transforming creative talents into possibilities in everyday life by participating in activities such as music listening, composing, and performing. We often listen to, perform, sing or create music using ideas and metaphors, but do not know music from its inherent perspectives. When children listen to music, they refer to objects they are familiar with.
Music teaching and learning are meaningful and engaging when it is regarded as a medium of expressing genuine emotions, enhancing interest, stimulating cognition, and regulating the collective behavior of all learners in all disciplinary learning and teaching. Music teaching and learning can be done in cross-disciplinary, integrated, project-based, and thematic education when music is received as a medium of education such as listening, composing, and performing.
We learn about music with texts (songs), music with titles, music with stories (opera, program music, etc.), descriptive music, music connected to some emotion, and music which includes some concrete sound (cuckoo, cats, waves, and typewriter, etc.) We relate our feelings to what we hear. For instance, we feel “brightness” from the major chord and “sadness” or “darkness” from the minor chord.
