Music Education and Folk Music

Cristina Rolim Wolffenbüttel


This essay deals with aspects related to folk music and its insertion in music education, considering the possibilities that the pedagogical-musical work, in dialogue with the teaching of music can bring. It also presents some suggestions for activities, both in Basic Education and in a more specific work with music teaching, as in schools specialized in this teaching. Focusing on folklore and its importance in people's lives and teaching, the essay proposes the use of various folk music genres, weaving historical and musicological explanations, in order to support the planning of possible pedagogical-musical activities.
