Learning Cantonese Opera and Development of Cultural and Life Education

Project: Research project

Project Details


This QEF project aims to develop primary and secondary school music teachers in developing their Cantonese operatic singing skills and relevant knowledge in order to equip them in teaching Cantonese opera in music classes. Since 2003, primary and secondary school music teachers are encouraged to teach the genre during music lessons. However, due to the western music background in general, music teachers found difficulties in teaching the genre. The project will offer 40 classes (3 hours each) for music teachers from 20 local schools in an academic year. After 20 classes, teachers will be required to apply what they have learnt in their daily teaching, while the research team will visit the classes for advisory and research purposes. In addition, elements of life education will be added to enrich students' learning experiences.
