School of Music
The following hypothesis was observed during the course of this study: Assuming you have a thirteen year old violin student who has had five years of private study, using a major work from the standard violin literature, how do history, melodic, thematic, harmonic, rhythmic, and compositional devices relate to a child’s perception of music? Also, I found it necessary to research existing teaching methods and interview professional musicians and educators in order to get several perspectives on this subject.
