Community Music-Based Structures of Learning (CoMu-Based SL) Framework: Nurturing Critical Musicality and Artistic Thinking
This chapter presents findings that strengthen and refine the theory that when Community Music-based Structures of Learning (CoMu-based SL) is used as a framework in teaching general music education, twenty-first-century skills (critical musicality) and dispositions (artistic thinking) are effectively nurtured in the process. Through design-based methodology, specialist music teachers developed units of lessons using CoMu-based SL that impact students’ critical musicality and artistic thinking relevant to the future. The results of the study are intended for the development of future models of pedagogies founded on artistic thinking towards a theory of aesthetic education.
