Abstract or Summary
  • Music is a global tradition. Different cultures around the word have different musical traditions and histories, but all people create music for the same reason: the love of music and expressing oneself. In the spring of 2011, the Oregon State University Music Department entered into a cultural exchange program with the government of the Henan Province in China. During this tour, research was conducted considering the similarities and differences to be found between the music traditions of the United States of America and China. The Chinese approach to learning and performing music was revealed to have a difference emphasis than the American or Western approach. While the Chinese approach emphasizes mathematical precision and a dramatic performance, the American approach emphasizes artistic integrity and a polished performance. However, these differences do not separate the Chinese and American music traditions. Music requires artistic integrity, mathematical precision and performances that are both polished and dramatic. This research confirms that although cultural practice does inform musical practice, all music traditions are united through a common love of song.
