音乐,学还是不学?
Music, to learn or not to learn

音乐是人类声音的最高艺术表达形式,是人脑的产物,与语言类似,都涉及复杂的感知运动加工过程。与语言的明确表义的功能不同,音乐侧重表达情绪,与人类的社会性息息相关。不论经济文化状况与社会生产力发展水平,古今中外,音乐无处不在。然而,人类社会为什么会有音乐,目前仍是一个迷题。曾经有学者质疑音乐存在于人类社会的意义,认为音乐是人类听觉系统的奶酪蛋糕,并无实际效用。这一观点也影响着人类音乐教育的发展,致使人们对音乐教育始终怀有模棱两可的犹豫态度。20世纪六十年代初,脑科学作为一门独立的综合性学科诞生了,致力于探索与提示人脑的功能与奥秘。本次讲座即在这一历史背景下,简述由脑科学给人们带来的对于音乐的独特魅力的全新认识。

Music is the highest art form of sound for human beings and the product of human brain. Similar to language, music involves complex sensory-motor processes. Unlike language, which conveys clear meaning, music is a media of emotion, being tightly linked to social nature of humans. Regardless of the condition of economy, culture, and production capacity of a society, there is always music in modern or ancient times, in China or abroad. Why we have music is still a mystery. Some scholar questions the very existence of music in human society and speculates that music serves no meaningful function to humans other than auditory cheese cake. This view dominates the development of music education, rendering our commitment to music education equivocal. Born in the 1960s, brain science aims to explore and discover the functions and mysteries of human brain, as an interdisciplinary subject. This talk will briefly introduce some new findings of music learning in brain research, offering an insight into the unique charm of music.
