爱的教育,教育的爱——记音乐剧《放牛班的春天》

In order to enrich the experience of XiWai students, the junior high school bilingual department once again organized all students to go to the Yunfeng Grand Theatre to watch the classic musical "Spring of the Cattle Class". In the afternoon, the children travelled to Yunfeng Theater. On the road, teachers and students enjoyed a rare leisure time, in which they had stress-free conversations together. Both students and teachers felt relaxed and deepened their understanding of each other.


The selected musical "Spring of the Cowboy Class" is closely related to campus life and was of great interest to students. Einstein once said: "Interest is the best teacher." American educator Bruner also said: "The best motivation for learning is the interest in learning materials." Getting all students to actively participate in learning reflects the new curriculum standard of a "student-oriented" education concept. Students can take this learning process as enjoyable and regard participation in learning as their highest pursuit. In the Western schools, there are many possibilities for learning, and the learning place can also be out of the classroom.


Additionally, music brings hope and illuminates reality. Xiwai students are encouraged by teacher Matthew, their new music teacher and are expected to harvest a lot with their constant trials. We are also gratified that there are so many teachers in Xiwai who are “Matthews”. They devote their love to the students and guide them to do their best to pursue their dreams!

 

为了丰富西外学生的业余文化生活,初中双语部又一次组织全体师生前往云峰大剧院观看经典音乐剧《放牛班的春天》。下午,孩子们满怀期待准时出发来到云峰剧院。观剧前,各班师生们聚在一起,享受难得的悠闲时光,一路上有着聊不完的话题,欢声笑语中,同学们融洽了感情,也加深了了解……或许这就是偷得浮生半日闲吧!


音乐剧是用音乐承载的一种戏剧,也是直接用音乐表现戏剧的艺术形式。有着“无声不歌,无动不舞”的艺术特色。其内容与现代生活密切相关,题材从古代到现代,从轻喜剧到重喜剧,从科幻到神话,无所不有。经过一个多世纪的发展,已经成为一种具有独特艺术魅力且生命力很强的剧种。

此次选择的音乐剧《放牛班的春天》,其内容与校园生活密切相关,很能引起学生的兴趣。爱因斯坦曾说:“兴趣是最好的老师。”美国教育家布鲁纳也曾说:“学习的最好动力是对学习材料的兴趣。”让全体学生积极主动地参与学习音乐剧,体现了新课标“以生为本”的教育理念,把学习过程当成一种享受,把参与学习当成最高追求。在西外,学习方式有多种可能,学习场所也不仅局限于教室内。

电影《放牛班的春天》曾斩获法国电影最高荣誉凯撒奖。此后连续在40多个国家上映,并斩获两项奥斯卡提名。温暖的故事,天籁的童声,平凡而伟大的普世价值,让这部电影历久弥新。

故事中,克莱门特·马修带着他的乐谱来到“池塘之底”,改变了一群孩子的世界和未来;银幕外,这个简单质朴却温暖得直击人心的故事,也或多或少地改变着观众们的感受,甚至人生。

在现场,亲身感受孩子们用母语唱出那些熟悉的经典旋律所获得的情感共鸣,比看法国原版电影所带来的感动更加强大。

演出结束后,随处都能听到孩子们哼唱剧中的歌曲,《风筝》的歌词也刷屏了朋友圈:


学生在欣赏音乐剧的同时也能感受到艺术带来的快乐,置身其中,体验到音乐剧中不同音乐元素的美。音乐剧的表演过程是丰富生活、提高修养的一种方式,使学生在感知和理解中获得审美感受。


音乐带来的光,照亮了现实,愿西外学子带着被马修老师激励的理想,迎着天际绛红的霞光,未来一路收获憧憬的光荣。


我们也欣慰,在西外,总有那么多的老师,像马修老师一样,在偷偷爱着你的孩子!
