Title
Transdisciplinary dimensions in the composing activities of children : transfer of strategies and transformation of knowledge
Author
Abstract
Existing studies show the value of using visual expression as a means of teaching children to understand and create music. This study aspires to point out an additional valuable aspect, namely, the influence composing via visual expression whereby children transform their own drawings may have on children's subsequent compositional processes. This is an area which is, as yet, largely unexplored. The article will examine this within a context in which children compose individually at the keyboard. With the aid of some examples taken from actual teaching practice, the author shows how children consciously or intuitively and in a more complex and sophisticated manner transpose their playing strategies from visual composing to a primarily musical context or a context incorporating new, non-musical references.
