Course Title: Music as Culture: Native Music (Co-Instructor)

Description: This course presents an introduction to the musical world of North American native peoples. Although some musical analysis will be essential, nevertheless the primary focus will be on the relationship between music and the role that it plays in the broader cultural context. The music will, in a sense, be a prism through which we can view, and which will at the same time reflect, broader social issues, beliefs, values and concerns. All types of music, from the most traditional to recent contemporary trends, will be given serious consideration. Musical texts, commentaries by performers, scholarly writings, class discussions and wisdom shared by guest speakers will all contribute to a collective knowledge that will develop as the class proceeds. The richness of that knowledge will depend, to a large extent, on the contributions made by all participants. The direction of the course will also be guided by this involvement. The class format will involve something of a lecture component, but a strong emphasis will be placed on the student's ability to contribute to weekly class discussions regarding the reading assignments, presentations made by local musicians or fieldtrips involving musical events. Many classes will feature a guest speaker (an elder, or an accomplished musician or dancer from the native community), and at this time the instructor will embrace the role of coordinator, and become another student of native music and culture. Since we live in Anishinaabe country, and most of the speakers will be Ojibwe, particular attention will be paid to the traditions of that nation.

Qualifications: The successful applicant will co-teach this course and have at minimum BA and BEd with intermediate and senior qualifications in First Nations, Métis and Inuit Studies. Previous teaching experience is required; and experience teaching Native Music courses is preferred.
