Abstract:
Methods and ideas for the creation of ‘transparent’ music in the classroom The aims of this port-folio are as follows;  To provide a coherent sequence of pieces and methods which can be used to create music in an educational context and also encourage students and teachers to develop their own creativity.  To provide pieces which develop student’s confidence in their own ability to create music in a variety of ways including composition, improvisation and creative leadership.  To provide exercises and pieces which help to develop the listening and appreciation skills essential for ensemble musicmaking.  To provide methods that enable the creation of ‘transparent music’. This is music in which the some, or all, of the decision making involved in the creation of a piece is accessible and apparent to an audience during its performance. This submission consists of a teaching book containing thirteen pieces/exercises, instructions giving guidance on their possible use in a teaching context and recorded examples. Also included are separate instructions where appropriate for the use of pieces in a concert or other non-educational setting and two essays giving context and background information on the ideas behind the pieces.
