NTNU conducts music survey as part of plans to launch popular music department (2014/05/01)

National Taiwan Normal University plans to found the nation’s first department of popular music. As part of its preparations, it conducted a survey of high school students asking their thoughts on today’s leading artists. 

The popularity of the film You Are the Apple of My Eye contributed to the fame of its theme song, “Those Years.” According to the National Taiwan Normal University survey, this Hu Xia recording is Taiwan’s best known pop song among high school students.

The most popular artist was Mayday, and this rock group also had the three most popular songs. The purpose of the survey was to get the university ready to launch Taiwan’s first department of popular music.

We hope to welcome famed singers or musicians to serve as lecturers here, such as Jody Chiang, Jay Chou or Mayday.

The university is opening the department to try to stop the decline of Taiwan’s influence in popular music.

What I’ve observed is not a fear of China superseding us but rather that China already has superseded us. Categorically, executives in the music industry say that popular music in Taiwan has fewer than three years left to shine.

Classes in the department will cover topics such as composing and playing music, singing and digital arrangement, mixing and recording. The goal will be to train a new generation of pop artists.

流行樂調查

台師大目標成立全台灣第一個「流行音樂系」,要請線上歌手和資深製作人來當教授,為了先了解高中生流行音樂偏好,師大也先做了調查,結果發現胡夏那些年最有名,而最受歡迎的歌手,則是搖滾天團五月天!

電影《那些年,我們一起追的女孩》紅翻亞洲,主題曲也跟著爆紅,台師大最新調查,胡夏這首《那些年》,最有名!

拿下最受歡迎歌手的搖滾天團五月天,則是包辦了最受歡迎歌曲前三名。台師大針對高中生做流行歌曲偏好調查,最大目的,是為成立全台第一個「流行音樂系」做準備。

[[台師大音樂系教授 李和莆]]
“江蕙,這樣一個知名度歌手,如果真的有機會,邀請來學術殿堂擔任講師,或是像周杰倫、五月天”

會成立流行音樂系,就是擔心台灣流行音樂市場被中國鯨吞蠶食的情況會愈來愈嚴重。

[[台師大音樂系教授 李和莆]]
“我所觀察的現象,我們不是怕被中國取代,而是我們現在真的被中國取代,尤其業界大老們都非常斬釘截鐵說,我們台灣流行音樂產業,甚至只剩下三年不到的光景”

從作曲、演奏、演唱、數位編曲、到混音、錄音工程,台師大都打算開課,要讓流行音樂向下扎根。
