Perspectives for Teachers Workshops
A04, Room 4-411 | 2:00–4:30 PM

Workshop 1 – Music and Cultural Appropriation: The New Hot Potato in the Classroom?
Laurenz Volkmann (Universität Jena)

Beethoven, Beyoncé, Boney M, Burning Spear, Childish Gambino, Elvis, Garry Glitter, Gentleman, German brass music, Jimi Hendrix, Laid Back, Lou Reed, Kendrick Lamar, Midnight Oil, Pink Floyd, Snap, Bruce Springsteen, Steel Pulse, Tanja Tagaq—what do they all have in common? They will be featured in this presentation on cultural appropriation as a rapidly emerging issue in the teaching of music or with music. First, I will outline the challenge of dealing with this particular issue, using a variety of examples from the English language classroom. I will address its complex ramifications, including the choice of music and "appropriate" classroom activities. Then, in a classroom-oriented discussion, we will explore why and to what extent long-established practices need to be reconsidered.

Workshop 2 – Film Music for the US Courtroom
Anja Rosenbrock (Gymnasium Brake)

Justice, freedom and equality are considered some of the chief values of the US—values which throughout American history were sometimes questioned by individuals and even by state and federal governments. Films about famous US court cases often take us on an emotional journey showing how such values are defended—accompanied by film music representing the victory of these values prevailing against the odds.
The workshop will contain a presentation of an example by the presenter and will then give participants the chance to work on a film example of their own in groups to determine in an evaluation phase whether there is a common musical language to film music for the US courtroom.
