Abstract

Preservation of South American Folkloric music is the main element to doing this research study. Written music is one that is a special challenge in certain regions of South America because it is mostly played live and transmitted in oral form. There is a huge necessity to transcribe music from the Andean mountains as we lack the written materials. My method book includes a couple songs for the young beginner that should be well-known to the child in the regions of South America as opposed to learning foreign songs. This is in hopes to have the student understand and adapt their piano skills much easier and faster. Working on this project has given me the opportunity, satisfaction, and encouragement to help facilitate transcribed piano sheet music to young performers to be able to learn and share them with teachers, other students, families, and to the world. Historical background with pedagogical piano knowledge for each area of study will be talked about with its rich musical culture and different rhythm patterns. The pedagogical aspect of why learning those songs are also important. This is an opportunity to, examine, compare, and find similar patterns being taught in the European/Western hemispheres, alongside with South American music and rhythms.
