GCHC1057 Chinese Popular Music: Its Cultural and Musical Meanings

  此科以音樂學習歷史。從歌詞意思到曲風的轉變,原來一切一切也很有意思。
  老師花了很多時間預備課堂內容,詳細並深入的介紹流行歌曲,當中所選的歌曲有新有舊。同學不用怕課堂沉悶,因為大部份歌曲亦是我們熟悉的。對流行歌有興趣的同學,很應該修讀這科目,因為當老師講解歌曲的意思和音樂要素,往往能夠令我們更加了解歌曲,更喜歡流行歌。
  除了中期測驗外,老師要求我們做了一個填詞並演唱表演、一個小組專題報告及一篇論文。功課量看起來挺多,但這科不用考試 😉 重要的是,完成了以上的功課,學到的知識比考試得著還要多,值得推介!

(Translation) In this course, we learnt history through listening to music. I realized that lyrics, composition styles and themes all have some implications related to the society.
The teacher spent lots of time on pre-class preparation. She introduced students to both old and new pop songs in details. For those who are interested in pop music should take this course. While the teacher explained the meaning and music elements, we understand and appreciate pop music more and more.
Apart from Mid-term, students are required to perform a song with lyrics re-written by ourselves, do a group presentation and an essay. The workload seems heavy but there is no exam. And most importantly, through completing these assignments, we learnt much more than just taking an exam. This course is highly recommended!
