World Music as a Source of Improvisation and Composition

Wil and Cat Greenstreet


This research paper describes the Austin Waldorf High School’s world music program for each of the four grades. It offers a very valuable discussion of the method for each lesson and then shares the data from a questionnaire that was circulated, hoping to discover whether the course had changed the way students related to music in a wide range of categories.

Also included are valuable appendices on the various world musical traditions and a discographic resource list for each grade level.
