Distance learning of sol-fa and music theory in Ukraine: a review of Internet-sources.

Languages of publication



This article analizes the open online-courses, video-lessons, video-schools for sol-fa and studying of music theory. We investigated the reasons for their accessibility and efficiency for musician’s study. We used for it the empirical methods (measurement, comparison, description) and experimental and theoretical methods (hypothetical, analysis, inductive). We have identified five reasons for occurrence of the open online-courses, video-lessons, video-schools for sol-fa and studying of music theory in Ukraine. One of them is the emergence of the lifelong learning’s concept. The second reason is Internet spreading. The third one is practices of active using Internet by modern youth. The fourth – imperfect infrastructure of the Websites of the Ukrainian educational establishments. And finally, impossibility of distance learning on the Websites of Ukrainian musical education institutions. That is why now it is popular to study on the open Web-resources. It was found out that the majority of open video-lessons are predominantlyRussian-speaking. We found one official site of the Ukrainian online music school, three video-schools, one video of the open lesson. They were all in Russian. We hope, that the reason of that is intention to reach a larger audience. We have determined that video-courses are made taking into account the psychological features of learning people of all ages. Classes are becoming longer and more difficult if students were more trained. The Internet has a lot of video on sol-fa and music theory for beginners-musicians of different ages, which corresponds to mission of the distance learning as part of “lifelong education”. This means that distance learning can be used in the process of music education. But there are some videos for the average level of learning (video recordings of open lessons), and there is almost no videos for higher school. We hope, that distance learning begin to develop faster in Ukraine if we will begin to use Ukrainian language more often and to develop the infrastructure of the official Websites of the Ukrainian educational establishments. Musical-theoretical subjects also include polyphony and analysis of musical composition. So, we will investigatе the situation of their distance learning in Ukraine .
