World Music Resource List

Here are some resources that I plan to use in my future music classroom!

1

Youtube - Music Cultures of the World

Youtube is an informational site that allows students to see music demonstrations first hand. I chose this site because it provided a brief overview of many different musical styles around the world. This gives students an opportunity to see which musical cultures interest them, so that they can have an idea of which to research further. ()

Encyclopedia Britannica - World Music Definition

Encyclopedia Britannica - World Music Definition

The Encyclopedia Britannica is an informational source that provides direct and easy to understand definitions of various subjects. I chose to use this article from the Encyclopedia Britannica to give my students a clear understanding of what world music is before they start to gather information that pertains to it.

Daria Music

Daria Music

This is a specifically world music site that teaches students about the different aspects involved in world music. I chose this site because, among other things, it teaches students about the different instruments, how they sound, how they are played, and then shows students tutorials on how to recreate them on their own. This is a great creative activity for students who learn kinesthetically. (http://www.dariamusic.com/dulcimer.php)

This site features an interactive map that allows students to click on the continent, country, and style of music that they want to hear and gain access to recordings and text.

This is a quiz that will assess students knowledge of the world instruments that they are learning about. I chose to use this quiz as a resource because I believe that self-assessment is an important tool for students to use as they are learning about world music. I particularly liked this quiz because it showed a short descriptive answer to each question after students answered them on their own.

This is an article based site that focuses on multicultural topics. I chose this site because I thought that it presented a good case for the differences between western and world music. One feature that this site provided was the ability to compare and contrast the musical scales of different cultures. I think this tool will help students to see one of the fundamental differences in musical cultures. (http://www.oh-i-see.com/blog/2013/11/24/culture-smart-the-musical-scale-across-cultures/)
