Abstract:The “How to Listen Classical Music” conferences serve to the goal of spreading the classical music out. The target group of these conferences is the students from elementary education, high schools and universities from different fields. The conference has already lectured in several cities in Turkey by the creator (Dr. Ozan Tunca) as well as the volunteers. It is also lectured in educational foundations and made a big effect on those institutions. These conferences also address the people who alienated from classical music caused by the lack of knowledge about classical music. Overall, it reached almost 7000 people in our country.
The main subjects that held on these conferences are about what the classical music is, why and how we should listen. It also contributes how we should approach the classical music and what we can feel if we have more information about it. The example music pieces will be played from cd’s and images will be shown with powerpoint program. The lecture is prepared as clear as possible to understand and it is designed quite far from technical terms.
As a volunteer of these conferences, I intend to indicate that the classical music for young people is significant for their future cultural accumulation. I also aim to prove these effects by expressing the audience’s own thoughts.
Keywords: classical music, conference, music education.
