Universitas Muhammadiyah Surabaya


Music has a positive role in teaching to shape ones mood. (Sousa, 2011). As a music, rap can be a learning medium to help students feel happy and relaxed (Segal, 2014). Various obstacles were found in implementing it such as cultural constraints and the fast tempo of the lyrics pronunciation. This study aimed to analyse the perceptions of students who perceived English learning by using rap music media. The population were 36 elementary school students at extracurricular classroom, while the samples taken were 18 students. They had been taught English by using rap music media from September 2017 to December 2017. The research data used questionnaires and interviews. The results showed that the students- music taste, their listening music habits, and their fatigue influenced their learning enjoyment. Nevertheless, the students who were often exposed to English songs considered it necessary to apply English teaching using rap music media. They had motivation to learn the fast pronunciation of rap music. The positive thing obtained from teaching using rap music was that most of the students would be relax without felt tense when they were learning if it was compared to conventional method.
