BUENO, Paula Alexandra Reis; COSTA, Rosa Maria Cardoso Dalla e BUENO, Roberto Eduardo. Educommunication in music education and its impact on school culture. Educ. Pesqui. [online]. 2013, vol.39, n.2, pp. 493-507. Epub 13-Nov-2012. ISSN 1517-9702. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-97022012005000021.
The study analyzed the communication/education interrelation in contexts of teaching/learning of music as part of a supplementary curriculum program entitled Programa Viva a Escola, organized by the State Secretariat for Education of Paraná in the city of Curitiba during the academic year of 2009. We argue that such interrelation occurs when, in a high-quality music education, there is also an effort aiming at forming able listeners, critical consumers, and autonomous and responsible producers, using approaches from the education for the media, from the technological mediation of teaching, and from the mediation in communication management, in other words, from educommunication in music education. Through a content analysis of documents and interviews carried out with students and teachers, we concluded that a high-quality music education took place: we observed music fluency in significant moments of music composition, performance and appreciation, moments which were sustained by the theoretical and technical development, and permeated by significant human interactions. Educommunication found fertile ground for its development, and there were initial manifestations within the sphere of music education in the contexts investigated. However, such communication/education interrelation still did not take place in an intentional, planned and systematized manner. This fact points to the reflection about the importance of the interdisciplinary work between the music educator and the educommunicator, in harmony with the new human sensibilities emerging from a society conditioned by the technologies of information and communication.
