Abstract / Description

Music is often regarded as the most intangible and powerful of all art forms; it cannot be seen and it possesses no physical form yet it can cause a person to feel extreme joy or mournful sorrow. The teaching of music appreciation is thus concerned with the teaching of the intangible. This paper summarises a research study that set out to gain a better understanding of how various learning and teaching methods are able to influence students’ appreciation and understanding of popular music. It has been conducted as action research within the interpretive paradigm, focused on the learning and teaching of an undergraduate first-year, bachelor’s level module on music appreciation, offered at London Metropolitan University.
