School Music Trips to Discover the Traditional Music of Japan

Posted on October 25, 2016 By

99One of the clearest lessons learnt on school music trips is how the art and music of a country or region reflect the common characteristics of the people from that area. Nowhere is this more obvious than in Japan, where the music has the same simplicity and closeness to nature that can be found in their art, lifestyle, and even their food.

While the influence of China can be clearly seen in the music, art and literature, the Japanese mark of simplicity is unmistakable. In fact, school music trips to Beijing and Tokyo can show that there are vast similarities in the traditional instruments – the difference in the music that results from these instruments, however, is as vast as the distance between the two countries.
