“Fushizukuri Education” in Chayamachi Elementary School, Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture : Fifth Grade Music Classroom Practice by General Teacher Setsuo Myoraku, 1977
“Fushizukuri Education,” the most successful music education approach in Japan, began in 1966 at Furukawa Elementary School in Hida, Gifu Prefecture. Fushizukuri Education was developed by a teachers’ group that did not contain a music teacher. In this respect, Fushizukuri Education is fundamentally different from the music education of Orff, Kodaly, and Jaques-Dalcroze. The characteristics of Fushizukuri Education are as follows: ① The independence of will of the learner is regarded as important, ② Class rules are completely secured, ③ Group activities are seriously considered, ④ Solos and remarks are secured, ⑤ Frequent use of repetition, ⑥ Reduced time for teacher remarks, and ⑦ Singing ability and performance power of the learners are excellent. Fushizukuri Education was adopted in many elementary schools, and was practiced in each place of Japan. In this article, we examine Fushizukuri Education as practiced in the fifth grade of Chayamachi Elementary School in 1997. Additionally, we review how the seven points of this style of education as performed at Furukawa Elementary are maintained or transformed.
