Thanks for the chat everyone. See y’all throughout the week! #MusEdChat

@tykalina I think that is enough. Music should be studied for music’s sake. It is inherently “enough”. Cultural lessons season it #MusEdChat

@tykalina honestly, I would say less than that if I’m comparing study of culture to rehearsal of music. But it is there. #MusEdChat

And I contend MUCH is learned through the music itself. It should be the primary reason for learning music. #MusEdChat

@tykalina True, that’s why we discuss historical/cultural/biographical/period info and connections. #MusEdChat

via TweetChat in reply to tykalina

@tykalina not sure what you mean by a “cultural” piece as every piece is. What perspectives do you refer to? #MusEdChat

via TweetChat in reply to tykalina

Certainly the “DOing” is the primary. But discuss historical background, biographical on composer, period as relates to art/lit #MusEdChat

We study the cultures of the music. Even without overtly doing so. Of course more study of the c. would enhance the performance #MusEdChat

via TweetChat

@byperc so do you think we should put more history/culture study into rehearsal, or out of rehearsal activities, or neither/both? #MusEdChat

@margaretssmith thank you. I figured, but never had any reference. #MusEdChat

I like that! RT @jguarr: One of my old classmates always said that being a musician was akin to being an anthropologist #MusEdChat

via TweetChat

@jguarr Agreed! It makes sense as musicians to study history through music. & as history students to study music through history. #MusEdChat

via TweetChat in reply to jguarr

Music is history, culture, math, science, language arts - English & foreign. #MusEdChat

Should we/Should performance ensembles be strictly performance based? We should, but music performance is inherently c-curricular #MusEdChat

via TweetChat

@margaretssmith yes, they do. We fix up the MPR like a 40’s night club, have students/community members mix dancing in costume. #MusEdChat

My Jazz Band does a big 30’s/40’s era swing dance each year. We’ve talked about integrating w/ History/Dance/etc. but haven’t yet #MusEdChat

RT @zweibz7: #musedchat in 15: To what degree do u plan cross-curricular activities? Should we? Performance groups strictly performance?
