Brief Discussion on the Application of National Musical Instruments in Middle and Primary Schools’ Music Course —Taking the Qiang people’s Qiang Flute for Example



Since the Qiang is an ancient nationality, its musical instruments also have a long history. However, with the rapid development of the times, we gradually forgot such classical minority musical instruments and have very limited applications and understanding of them. The current researches regarding Qiang musical instruments mainly focus on specialized higher institutions and related professional groups and seldom involve the music class in middle and primary schools. This paper researches the application of Qiang’s national instruments in music teaching, introduces Qiang’s cultural background and traditional instruments, and mainly states how to use Qiang’s musical instruments in music appreciation, music activities and music creation, in the hope of carrying forward Qiang instruments, cultivating students’ interest in national music culture and attaining better inheritance of Qiang instruments.
