Transmission of traditional musics and music teaching and learning in the Canary Islandsn perspective.
Emma Rodriguez Suarez
Written in English
For generations, an oral transmission process has served as the primary means for preserving and teaching traditional music of the Canary Islands. This informal music education occurs among family members, singers and performers in folkloric bands, and in lessons taught by respected traditional performers, yet it is seldom acknowledged for its role in Canarian music by formal educational and academic institutions. The process and applications to music learning have not been previously documented.Significant findings from this research include the following: (1) The transmission of music and music teaching and the process of learning in the Canary Islands is an oral tradition. (2) Music in Gran Canaria is a personal experience. (3) Formal and informal music coexist within this island. (4) The informal music of the Canary Islands reflects its culture. (5) Music is in all media; it speaks of its culture and people, and it transmits through the generations the legacy of its heart and soul. The nature of Gran Canarian music education is of the body, mind, and spirit. It is an emotional, psychological, and spiritual experience.All three of these methods of collecting data were examined and discussed in a triangulation analysis to discover further conclusions and implications regarding use of the methods within the traditional music community and possible applications for music educators worldwide.This study seeks to examine the transmission process of teaching traditional music on Gran Canaria, one of the seven Canary Islands, in Spain, through a qualitative mixed-method case study. Three methods of data collecting were used: personal narrative, interviews of selected practitioners of traditional Gran Canarian music, and observation of rehearsals and performances by singers and folk bands. Five subjects were selected for interviews from a population of music teachers, professional and amateur musicians, and professionals from fields outside of traditional music. Each was questioned extensively on early experiences and familial associations with music, experiences as a performer and/or teacher, and involvement in extended musical activities to identify commonalities and distinctions in experience that could provide insights into how traditional music has been passed from generation to generation in this culture.
