dc.description.abstractThis thesis, Teaching Musical Meter to School-Age Students Through the Ski-Hill Graph, aims to demonstrate the “pedagogability” of modern meter theory, that is, that new scholarship on meter can translate into a coherent and practically implementable instructional curriculum, with various advantages for school-age students. The curriculum model developed in the thesis is derived from Richard Cohn’s work on and approaches to meter theory, which focuses on “sound rather than notation” and graphic representations of meter through mathematical music theory. The materials set out in the thesis demonstrate ways students might be taught to articulate their experience of meter. A unified approach, it incorporates Cohn’s ski-hill graph and other instruments of mathematical music theory such as the SkiHill app, numbering for counting meter, cyclic graphs, and beat-class theory. Among the outcomes it anticipates is a deeper engagement with music in classroom settings. Through this new foundation, where meter studies fits more compatibly with studies of tonality, students should logically be able to perform, compose, and analyse music both aurally and visually with increased confidence and understanding.en_AU
