 Music is like a rope: it links people!



On this page, we will investigate how, why, when and where music links people. 

For instance, people join to learn music at music schools. They play together in orchestras. They go to concerts at concert rooms or festivals and so on... 

We are expected to show here our town/country's music schools, concert rooms, orchestras, choirs and music festivals.

Does your cointry fit into a piece of music?

Polish group listened to pieces from all countries participating in our project. I must admit that students had some problems. Or rather I should say: some students couldn't feel the countries' spirit in the pieces of music they listened to and some of them turned out to be more sensitive to national identity painted by music. The easiest pieces were the ones from Norway and Spain. Some students managed to recognize a piece by a Polish composer although they didn't recognize the author. I assume the results of the quiz mirror the lack of knowledge and sensitivity or imagination of the group as a whole. Individual results are more varied. Although the task was a challenge students liked it:-)

Thanks Weronika!
I knew it would be a VERY difficult task to do!!! I even told my students that if it were me in their shoes I don't know if I would accomplish it! emoticon

I believe that even if we had let them listen to traditional music it would still be hard to 'see' the country behind it!

But we must regard this has a survey (a 'study' or investigation) to make us think a little bit more about this issue: the (almost) complete lack of knowledge we have about other European countries' traditional music.
