Russian term or phrase: народное музыкальное творчество
Listed as a subject in a music teacher's degree diploma. Is this just "folk music" or something else?

Explanation:
"Народное музыкальное творчество" как изучаемый предмет - понятие более широкое, чем просто folk music. Сюда относится не только знание самой музыки (песен, частушек, танцевальных мелодий и т.п., то есть музыки песенной и инструментальной), но и теория народной музыки (этнические особенности, музыкальные тенденции, мелодика, ритмика, использование тех или иных инструментов и т.д.) Кроме того, в русском языке слово "народный" в сочетании с "творчеством" имеет еще и смысл "любительский, непрофессиональный" (что, правда, в данном случае имеет меньшее значение).

In case you assume that "folk music" includes all the above mentioned, than it's okay; if not, some additional words should be added, e.g. theory and practice of folk music (or maybe folk and ethnic), or something like that.

Thank you, Natalie. From what you and the others say, I think i'll say "Fok music: theory, practice and composition". I hope I'll be able to send the translation back to the holder of the diploma as a draft for checking before finalizing it - she will know what she studied and what she didn't.

Thanks, I like my coffee black, without Irish whiskey even though I was in Dublin last weekend.

folk music


Explanation:
I think you are right..."narodnoe" would cover the "folk" and "muzykal'noe tvorchestvo" would take care of the "music".

You know how economy of words plays in English as opposed to Russian.

Sorry my Russian keyboard is acting up this AM..had to phoneticize.

folk music composition


Explanation:
hey Doc, it's too early in the morning to be nice so I have to disagree...ok, partially agree...Jack/Doc, the 'tvorchestvo' bit gives me pause. It's a music teacher's diploman, right? So she might've studied folk music composition, correct? 'Tvorchestvo' comes from 'tvorit', doesn't it? To create, in this context 'to compose'.

Ok, if you both disagree, then I'll molchat and have my morning tea.

Doc, vstayosh vsedga tak rano aka ya?

or are you a somnambulist like me? ;-)
