ETHN 222 - Building Community Through Music

FC CNDP
4 credits
Students will assist in teaching a community-engaged musical ensemble for underserved youth in Lorain County. In the first module, you will learn about best practices of community engagement, the emerging field of ‘community music” and the relationship between ethnomusicology and community-based work; conduct demographic and ethnographic research to understand the local community in which the partner is based; and then turn your attention to pedagogy and designing lesson plans. In the second module you will work directly with the youth as you learn how to facilitate music-making using the Javanese Gamelan. Prerequisites and notes: Prior gamelan experience not required; musical experience is desired.
