Abstract [en]

The research had an anthropological perspective, regarding the integration of Art and Music in Zambia. By using qualitative interviews and participating observations I collected information about how some teachers in Zambia reflect about the integration of Art and Music. Through the theoretical framework I analyzed the results. The results demonstrated how the teachers were responding due to the curriculum and teacher’s guide but acting differently through the observations. The teacher’s role in Zambia is affected by the social status and of certain rules one must follow in order to behave correctly. Music and Dance are used as a result of their culture according to the teachers. The lack of financial resources seems to be one issue that explains why Arts education in form of creative material is not being used.
