Exploration of the Use and Reform of Vocal Music Teaching Materials in Chinese Art Colleges


Lu, Ji, Canadian Social Science


Abstract

With the development of economy and society, new backgrounds and new situation have new expectations of China's vocal education and higher and higher requirements of vocal teaching materials. This paper raises the idea that "Only brave to create, continue to create, and accelerate to create, can promote the scientific development of vocal music education", and on this basis, the research idea "taking the applicability of vocal teaching materials as a foothold and taking the language of teaching materials as a breakthrough" is proposed. Meanwhile this paper points out it needs to focus on the unity of means and content in dissemination results; focus on the unity of localization and internationalization in the vision of development; focus on the unity of heritage and learning of tradition and future in study resources; focus on the unity of external expression and grasping the essence in the interpretation of works; focus on the unity of short-term and long-term in the guidance of education. Meanwhile, pointing at the chaos of current textbook publishing and actual situation of many problems, this paper develops a specific reform idea and train of thought, and proposes the wishes and expectations to all the vocal music educators: often having the mind of innovation, often grasping the innovative spirit, often having innovative behaviors and often presenting innovative contribution. It is believed that with the efforts of musical colleagues, our enterprise of vocal music will flourish, the compiling of vocal materials will also become increasingly standardized, and we can expect the appearance of standardized textbooks with professionalism and applicability.

The times g0 forward má vocal music education also goes forward. With the development of economy and society, new backgrounds and new situation have new expectations of China's vocal education and higher and higher requirements of vocal teaching materials,

Combing with the current teaching practice of vocal music educati0n of Chinese art colleges, I think that as an inexhaustible and motive force for national progress, innovation is the "propeller" for progressive education, wbich we should pay great attention and firmly grasp. In which, the compiling of teaching materials must adhere to the idea that "brave to innovate, continue to innovate, and accelerate to innovate to promote the scientific development of vocal music education", and establish research idea of "taking the applicability of vocal teaching materials as a foothold and taking the language of teaching materials as a breakthrough".

1. THE MAIN PROBLEMS CURRENTLY EXISTING IN TEACHING MATERIALS OF VOCAL MUSIC

1.1 Teaching Materials Are Lack of Characteristics of Times

Some textbooks are old, rarely include outstanding vocal works reflecting the achievements of China's reform and opening up, or promoting a new era of spiritual civilization.
