Aziz A. Madi, Tsonka M. Al-Bakri


This research deals with music folkloristic and its relationship with other general sciences. The study of folklore, its analysis and classification, is not only of historical value, because of its social character, but also because of its impact on the professional music and its undisputed aesthetic value. In the article researchers essentially deals with discussing the way of notation of the musical artefacts, their classification and analysis, presenting the Eastern-European methodology as basic, which is to help local music researchers to be grounded also with this way of ethno musicological researching, in terms of music and theory, and samples collected. The main point is a presentation of basic standings of European music theory, definition of concepts, positioning of the terms in the relevant scientific fields, but not analysis or discussion about them. The need to establish the present article was dictated of noted indeterminate knowledge about boarders of examined sciences by many of the students in Yarmouk and Jordan University. This provoked the need for their exact theoretical location and precise definition, which may help in more clear understanding and differencing them.
The researchers has dwelt on the methods whereby the recorded melodies are analyzed, at the same time giving in a graph, a possible notation of dance movements, which are part of the notation of the folk songs. The determinate folk samples will not be discussed, to keep the theoretical aim of a clear trend in the article.
In this work, researchers have paid also attention to the study of the folklore instruments, which are an inseparable part of the performance of folk songs and dances.
