  • Early Nineteenth Century American Influences on the Beginning of Japanese Public Music Education: An Analysis and Comparison of Selected Music Textbooks Published in Japan and the United States

    Indiana University, School of Music   2000.5

    No Setting   Single Work    [Reviewed]

     More details

    The purposes of this study were to analyze and compare music textbooks used in the early nineteenth century and the Meiji period between the United States and Japan, and to assess the influences of nineteenth century American school music education in the philosophy, teaching methods, and song materials.
    I examined (1) the notable American music textbooks of Lowell Mason, Thomas Hastings, Elam Ives Jr., William Bradbury and Asa Fitz, (2) Luther Mason's National Music Course, and (3) official and selected private Japanese music textbooks published between 1880 and 1911.
    From the analysis it was found that during the process of adaptation, some American characteristics were preserved almost identically, some characteristics were changed from minor to substantial degree, and some characteristics were rejected. Where change did not occur, characteristics had to do mainly with musical matters of the song materials. The keys, meters, measures, vocal ranges, and vocal settings were almost identical to the American and Mason's song materials. Where partial changes or omissions occurred, characteristics had to do mainly with teaching methods and sequences. Pestalozzianism was introduced, but it was transformed to merely a practical methodology and not a philosophical principle, at least in school music education. Where substantial changes occurred, characteristics had to do mainly with philosophy and texts. Religious texts were rejected and Mason's intrinsic value of music as a purpose was not adapted. Also the idea that every student has a talent for music was not transferred to the Japanese curriculum. Only the original American idea of moral and physical merits of music was preserved and used for different purposes, for example, developing moral sense, nationalistic and patriotic feelings.
    It was also found that there were many American influences far beyond those attributed to Luther Whiting Mason. Likewise, the Japanese government and leaders in the Music Study Committee had very careful screening filters to the incoming American culture, and did not give it an unlimited free hand in applying it to indigeneous Japanese culture. This study evidenced that the Japanese took the initiative and were always at the center of the decision-making.
    The findings of the present study clarified the connection between the beginning of Japanese school music education and nineteenth century American music education. The results of this study also underscore the fact that music education is a form of cultural transmission and transformation.

    Abstract:
    Japan has been one of the leading countries in Asia, where many world-class music professionals are continually produced. As an insider, the author has witnessed and experienced how “musically talented children” are raised in Japan for more than three decades. The purpose of this paper is, therefore, to articulate the career path for becoming professional classical musicians from infants through college period. The findings are four folds: (1) piano is the most popular instrument, to begin with from early age, (2) most young children participate in music competitions, (3) there are three critical periods when young children have to decide whether they continue to study music or quit, (4) Two music universities, the Tōhō Gakuen Music School and the Tokyo National University of the Arts are the top schools in producing professional musicians, particularly in the piano, the violin, and the composition fields. In addition, the systems of three notable music education organizations, the Suzuki Methods, the TōhōMusic School for Children, and the PTNA, are explained.

    Making Children Happy through Music:
    A Universal Mission of Music Teachers in the Classroom

    Masafumi Ogawa, D.M.E.
    Yokohama National University, Japan

    Abstract

    My speech is about an issue of music teachers. I would like to explore if there is a common theory of music teachers regardless of difference in politics, educational systems. I limit my argument primarily within the general school curriculum.
    In my previous keynote speech at the Silk Road Music Education Conference, I have checked national music standards in twelve countries and found that objectives of music standards could be categorized into at least five domains each of which is continuously linked each other namely; (1) Music experience & literacy, (2) Cultural identity, (3) Aesthetics, (4) Morals, and (5) Patriotism. From this result, it is certain to say that intrinsic objectives are seen in most Western countries whereas Eastern countries tend to have more extrinsic objectives.
    I chose eight music teachers around the world to compare how similar or different between them. The countries I selected are China, Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam, Indonesia, the United States, Norway, and Japan. Regardless of difference of nations as well as teaching styles, it could be true that all music teachers were trying hard to make friendly atmosphere in the classrooms. Teachers are doing their best to have their students enjoy and learn music. As far as I have observed music classes of the world, any music teachers are not different among nations regardless of political, educational, and social backgrounds.
    It is inevitable that national curriculum policy or educational purpose sometimes conflicts with individual teacher's philosophy or mottos of music teaching. Music teachers in Japan may not be an exception. I would posit three fundamental flaw of music education and school system in Japan. First, music itself is not the purpose music education in Japanese schools. Second, Japanese music teachers are forced to follow the curriculum guidelines or school tradition. Third, Japanese school music teachers suffer under harsh working condition. Japanese teachers in Japan have to spend much more time in life guidance, non-academic matters than preparation for teaching. Teachers often have to work even holidays to attend local events without salary.
    From the discussion above, we come to a new conclusive statement. Although the gsational curriculum and education system are different nation by nation, but music teachers are essentially the same. Why so? Because every music teacher is willing to teach music of what they have and wishes to improve musical skills and knowledge so that the students could enjoy music making and listening.
    I would like to propose that the universal mission of music teachers is to make children happy through music. This is the mission that any music teachers in the world must achieve. Why this mission? Because it is also the mission of music by itself. Happiness, I believe, is one of the purposes of what humans are doing music. If this mission fails, any teaching theory or latest technology are meaningless. Happiness, by what I mean, is not just being joyful or cheerful. It also includes healing mind, consolation, and deep satisfying feeling.
    How can we achieve that mission? To answer this, let me propose two key words, these are “Flow" and “My music." “Flow" is a moment when human is most creative and happiest. It is most precious and important thing to experience state of “flow" when we are doing music. Thus in music class, to make “flow" state, teachers must give students appropriate tasks matching their skill levels. Music teachers must have “My Music" and teach “My Music" to students, not anything else. The term “My Music" was coined by me as an essential component of music teachers. Whenever music teachers teach music, the music materials must be belonged to both teachers and students, and perhaps local cultures. And teaching music is a process of becoming “My Music" of students.
    When setting educational objectives in the music curriculum, it might bear great risk of that music, teachers, and students become slaves of that curriculum. We definitely need theories of music teachers because music teachers must improve their musical skills and knowledge continually in order to make better teaching performances.
    Music teacher's duty is not just teaching music, but teaching how to live wise, how to think deeply, and how to grow to his/her maximum possibilities through and with music. Only music teachers are able to change students' lives through music for the future. Music teachers are not the soldiers of political forces, nor state curriculum guardians. Music teachers are always for the students as Thomas Regelski states “the service should benefit the students, not the teacher and not the programs as though they were autonomous ends in themselves. Music education in schools, regardless of educational systems, political states, nor economical status of nations, should be education in music, not music in education. And music teachers always play the central role in this structure.

  • Dreaming, Becoming, and Being a Music Teacher in Japan: An Insider's View of the Relationship between a Music Teacher's Career Path and Education Policy

    The article intends not only to reveal aspects of the real lives of music students and teachers but also to tie the music education policies to music teachers' minds and behaviors. The career path was divided into three periods: from young age until high school, time during college as a music education major, and time as a music teacher in the public schools. The case study analysis reveals that it is likely that educational policy is introduced at the college level for the first time, permeates music teachers' live gradually throughout their careers, and almost becomes invisible for in-service music teachers as they internalize it.
