Abstract

This research aims to investigate the effect of musical production on school music education from the teachers’ perspective, in terms of the workload, musical knowledge, relationship with students, and effects on the students’ learning process. Case study is used as a method to investigate a primary school, Tsang Mui Millennium School. It produces original musical every academic year, which is very rare for a school with students in learning stage one and two. Interviews with two music teachers from the school were conducted individually to understand the effect on their teaching from the experience. The interview questions were designed based on the four aspects mentioned above.
Both of the teachers agreed that the workload was very heavy, and stated that the experience had significant effects on their knowledge and relationship with students. The knowledge enhancement could not aid the teaching directly, while the better relationship can help. For the students’ learning process, they expressed that the students’ learning motivation had increased, also their musical skills were improved. The implication of this research is to explore possibilities for schools to include music as an extra-curricular activity in order to train students’ musicianship.
