ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book sets out to build on the initial aspects of singing at sight in reading both the rhythm and pitch accurately, as begun in Sight-Singing 1. Sight-Singing 2 is divided into two parts. Part 1 comprises 95 exercises in either single or 2-part form. These cover methods to secure the line of the pitch, sequences, singing a lower part, ties, awareness of chord structure, canons, chromatic movement, modulations and tone rows. A section of 2-part exercises is also included using treble and bass clefs. Part 2 consists of 16 solo pieces which are presented in the treble clef, and aim to develop the singer's ability to pitch independently from their accompaniment. These short pieces are based on chords, intervals, the Dorian mode, pentatonic scales, melodic minor scales, chromatic movement and changing time signatures. The aim of this volume is to develop a secure sense of pitch, providing a comprehensive range of styles and challenges which will be of value not just to singers but to all dedicated musicians. The skill of being able to 'vocalise' a melody independently and accurately is a valuable asset for all musicians regardless of vocal ability or instrument played. The ability to 'hear' a phrase before it is sung or played is especially useful. - 95 solo/2-part exercises - 16 accompanied solos - 1 wide range of challenging styles - valuable both to singers and instrumentalists

Teaching Approaches In Music Theory
Author: Michael R. Rogers
Publisher: SIU Press
Release Date: 2004
Pages: 249
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Drawing on decades of teaching experience and the collective wisdom of dozens of the most creative theorists in the country, Michael R. Rogers' s diverse survey of music theory-- one of the first to comprehensively survey and evaluate the teaching styles, techniques, and materials used in theory courses-- is a unique reference and research tool for teachers, theorists, secondary and postsecondary students, and for private study. This revised edition of Teaching Approaches in Music Theory: An Overview of Pedagogical Philosophies features an extensive updated bibliography encompassing the years since the volume was first published in 1984. In a new preface to this edition, Rogers references advancements in the field over the past two decades, from the appearance of the first scholarly journal devoted entirely to aspects of music theory education to the emergence of electronic advances and devices that will provide a supporting, if not central, role in the teaching of music theory in the foreseeable future. With the updated information, the text continues to provide an excellent starting point for the study of music theory pedagogy. Rogers has organized the book very much like a sonata. Part one, " Background," delineates principal ideas and themes, acquaints readers with the author' s views of contemporary musical theory, and includes an orientation to an eclectic range of philosophical thinking on the subject; part two, " Thinking and Listening," develops these ideas in the specific areas of mindtraining and analysis, including a chapter on ear training; and part three, " Achieving Teaching Success," recapitulates main points in alternate contexts and surroundings and discusses how they can be applied to teaching and the evaluation of design and curriculum. Teaching Approaches in Music Theory emphasizes thoughtful examination and critique of the underlying and often tacit assumptions behind textbooks, materials, and technologies. Consistently combining general methods with specific examples and both philosophical and practical reasoning, Rogers compares and contrasts pairs of concepts and teaching approaches, some mutually exclusive and some overlapping. The volume is enhanced by extensive suggested reading lists for each chapter.
