The study on the strategies of choosing music schools from the viewpoint of Kansei engineering
This research is to apply the kansei engineering to the study of choosing music schools. The purpose is to help parents select the perceptual characteristics and priorities of environment elements which are suitable for children to learn music. In this study, the combinations of Nagai method (5W1H), AHP (Analytical Hierarchy Process), ISM (Interpretive Structural Modeling) and GRA (Grey Relational Analysis) are used to clarify the development characteristics of music schools, and establish feasible options and assessment models. It is hoped to provide good references for the parents who wish to let their children engaged in music education.
