INFLUENCES ON A LEVEL COMPOSERS......

Discussion in 'Music' started by ViolaMan, Jun 19, 2011.

  1. I am currently researching influences on A level composers, looking specifically at any impact the music they listen to recreationally has on their work. Can anyone recommend any literature that is worth looking at? I've read quite a lot already but am keen to read more. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Thanks.

    Boal-Palheiros & Hargreaves (2001). Listening to music at home and at school. British Journal of Music Education, 18:2. 103 - 118.
    Lamont, Hargreaves, Marshall & Tarrant (2003). Young people's music in and out of school. BJME, 20:3, 229 - 241.

  4. Emma....thank you SO much for your help. Can I be cheeky and add that I'm also looking at how they are influenced by the stylistic features of melody, rhythm and structure in other music. Any further ideas on this one? Once, again, thank you very much.
     
  5. Look at the Boal-Palheiros and look at the references section - might be some further suggestions there!
