Folk music is defined in several ways. It is a music transmitted by mouth, as music commercial and classical styles. This music is also referred to as “traditional music” and in the United States of America as “roots music”
In the mid 20th century is century form of popular folk music evolved from traditional folk music. The process and period is called the (Second) folk revival and reached the zenith in the 1960s.
The most common name for this new form of music is also “folk music”, but is often called “contemporary folk music” or “folk revival music” to make the destination.

folk music is a genre generally distinct from traditional folk music it often shares the same English name performers and venue as traditional folk music even individual songs may be a blend of the two. A consistent definition of traditional folk music is elusive. The terms folk music, folk song and folk dance are comparatively recent expressions. They are extensions antiquation William. Thomas to describe “The traditional customs and superstitions of the uncultured classes”. The term is further derived from the German expression folk in the sense of “the people as a whole” as applied to popular and national music by JohHerder and the German Romantics over half of a century earier .Traditional folk music also includes most indigenous music .However despite the assembly of an enormous body of work over some two centuries ,there is still no certain definitions of what folk music is .Folk music may tend to have certain characteristics but it cannot clearly be differentiated in purely musical terms .One meaning after given is that of old song with unknown composers” another is that of music that has been submitted to an evolutionary “process of oral transmission. The fushioning and re fashioning of music by the community that gives it its folk character “such definitions defend upon “[culture]” process, rather than abstract musical characterizing one side of a “continuity and oral transmission….seen as characterizing one side of a cultural dichotomy, the other side of which is found not only in the lower layers of feudal capitalist and some oriental societies but also in “primitive” societies and in parts of “popular cultures” are widely used definition is simply “folk song/music is what people sing”
For scholars, such as Bela Bartok, the sense of the music of the country is distinct from that of the town. Folk music was already seen as the authentic expression in a way of life, now past or about to disappear (or in some cases to be preserved or somehow revived)”particularly in community, uninfluenced by art music” and by commercial and printed song.clychord their in favour of a simple distinction of economic class, yet for him true folk music was in chades secogers words, associated with a lower class in societies which are cultures and socially stractified,that is, which have developed an elite and possibly also a popular, musical culture. In these terms, folk song/music may be seen as part of a scheme comprising four musical types; primitive or trial “elite” or “folk and popular”.
1.1 TRADITIONAL TEACHING
Traditional teaching is concerned with the teacher being the controller of the learning environment. Poor and responsibility are held by the teacher and they play the role of instructor (in the form of lectures) and decision making (in regards to curriculum content and specific outcomes). They regard students as having “knowledge holes that need to be followed with information. In short, the traditional teaching view that it is the causes learning to occur (Novak, 1998).
Learning is chiefly associated within the classroom and is often competitive. The lessons content and delivery are considered to be most important and students master knowledge through drill and practice (such as rote learning, folklore which is usually accompanied with song i.e. music). Content need not be learned in context.
The most common seating arrangement used by traditionalist is rows. For instance in the olden days, the man in the house, usually the grandfather or mother, in the evening time, will sits down the young children (teen) on a mat and start teaching them lessons through the folklore which is also accompanied with folk song in order to make it interesting and will also make the children to sing along and if it warrants clapping they clap to it too.
The young children which stands as students always find it interesting to learn norms and philosophy of life through the folklore and folk music.
