Youth music movement

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The guitar lute was a typical instrument of the youth music movement

The youth music movement (often also the singing movement in the 1920s and 1930s ) was a musical educational direction influenced by the youth movement at the beginning of the 20th century . She endeavored to promote music-making among laypeople , including the maintenance of traditional folk songs .

One of the starting points was the rediscovery of the German folk song in the Wandervogel , which was written around 1900 . The songbook Der Zupfgeigenhansl , published by Hans Breuer , and a new musical instrument, the guitar lute, were widely used in the youth music movement . In addition, old and in some cases forgotten instruments experienced a revival in the Wandervogel movement , such as the recorder , the forest zither or the mandolin .
