GDAR1056 Music of Our Lives: Understanding and Enjoying the Musical Arts

課程包含不少課題,例如古典、宗教、爵士、身份認同等等,三小時課堂中算是很充實,即使我在高中曾修讀音樂科,亦學到不少新知識。不過,部份課題範圍太大,難以在堂上完成講解,有時令到音樂選段只能播放一小節,對於學生掌握概念、欣賞音樂稍有欠缺,始終作為音樂科目,聆聽與講解同樣重要。故此,部份題目或可稍作修訂,將其範圍縮小,令課堂時間鬆動一些,便可以有更多時間聽音樂。另外,偶然得知導師曾編著有關中樂的書目,所以認為此科可考慮將三份一時間撥予中樂,講解一些大眾化的中樂,和中、西方音樂如何互相影響,這樣整科便會更全面。
(Translation) The 3-hour course covers substantial amount of themes such as classical, religion, jazz and sense of identity. I have learnt a lot of new knowledge about music even I have studied in Music in high school. However, the content of some themes are too much and wide that the instructor can hardly finish in one lesson. During the lesson, most of the music can only be played for one bar which students can hardly appreciate the music and grasp the related musical concepts. As a Music course, listening to music and elaboration of the related concepts are crucial. Thus, the content of some themes should be adjusted or trimmed down. Besides, I know the instructor has written a book related to Chinese music. Thus, I suggest one third of course time can be used for teaching Chinese music and the mutual influence of Chinese and Western music. Then the course will be more comprehensive.
