Melissa Mills : Working with Young Singers - Vol 2 : Book : G-9357

Melissa Mills : Working with Young Singers - Vol 2new

This important resource is the culmination of a lifelong dream of author Melissa M. Mills to share the wisdom of many of the most influential community children's choir directors in North America, especially those responsible for pioneering and shaping this wonderful art form.

Across two volumes, Mills collects and organizes interviews with 23 expert conductors. Through their conversations, Mills gleans wisdom about their training, teaching philosophy, motivations, and practice, and provides a special focus from each conductor on topics ranging from assigning vocal parts and teaching healthy tone production to planning rehearsals and developing independent musicians.

Teachers of young singers will find a broad and deep exploration of the issues that conductors must consider, leading to more purposeful instruction and increased effectiveness in the choral setting. The philosophies and principles discussed in these books offer insights for teachers of the youngest singers through teenagers, in all choral settings (children's choirs, church choirs, and elementary, middle, and high school choirs).

The growing interest in both community children's choirs and choral conducting philosophy makes Working with Young Singers a timely and invaluable resource for all choral music educators.

Bridget Sweet : Thinking Outside the Voice Box : Book : 9780190916381

Bridget Sweet : Thinking Outside the Voice Box

The changing adolescent voice counts among the most awkward of topics voice teachers and choir directors face. Adolescent voice students already find themselves at a volatile developmental time in their lives, and the stresses and possible embarrassments of unpredictable vocal capabilities make participation in voice-based music an especially fraught event. In this practical teaching guide, author Bridget Sweet encourages a holistic approach to female and male adolescent voice change. Sweet's approach takes full consideration of the body, brain, and auditory system; vocal anatomy and physiology in general, as well as during male and female voice change; and the impact of hormones on the adolescent voice, especially for female singers. Beyond the physical, it also addresses the emotional and psychological components: ideas of resolve and perseverance that are essential to adolescent navigation of voice change; and exploration of portrayals and stereotypes in pop culture that influence how people anticipate voice change experiences for teens and 'tweens, from The Brady Bunch to The Wonder Years to The Simpsons. As a whole, Teaching Outside the Voice Box encourages music educators to more effectively and compassionately assist students through this developmental experience.

Jean Ashworth Bartle : Lifeline for Children's Choir Directors

Life Line for Children's Choir Directors, by Jean Ashworth Bartle, is a must for people who work with children's voices. As the founder of the Toronto Children's Chorus and experienced educator, Bartle compiles her 20+ years of experience into this book. The beginning provides an overview of important details necessary for any choir, such as diction and musicianship. The remaining chapters are devoted to specific types of children's choirs in school and the community. Each chapter is thoroughly detailed from organization through performance and includes extensive repertoire lists. Bartle includes many useful references throughout the book. This revised and expanded version can help anyone who conducts a children's choir and should be read cover to cover.

Jean Ashworth Bartle : Sound Advice

Sound Advice is a valuable resource for college students, beginning teachers, and experienced conducters of children's choirs. It covers the vast array of skills needed by today's conductor and will benefit all choir directors who want their choirs to reach a higher level of artistry. This book will be useful on many levels: for the college student studying the child voice and elementary teaching methods; for the teacher beginning to direct choirs in schools, synagogues, churches and communities; for experienced children's choir directors who wish to know more about orchestral repertoire for treble voices, conducting an orchestra, and preparing a children's choir to sing a major work with a professional orchestra. The underlying educational philosophy is sound; the author sees development of musicianship through singing as the primary goal of a children's choir program. This philosophy differs dramatically from the traditional concept of the conductor as all-knowing and the singers as receptacles. An outstanding aspect of the book is how the author leads the reader to an understanding of how to teach musicianship. Developing literacy in the choral setting is a mysterious, amorphous process to many conductors, but the author clearly outlines this important process with practical suggestions, well-documented examples, and a clear reading style which will reach readers on many levels. The comprehensive repertoire, skill-building sheets, and programs for all types of children's choirs will provide teachers with immediate and highly valuable resources.

Martin Ashley : Singing in the Lower Secondary School

This is an essential text on an important area of the music curriculum consistently judged weak or inadequate by school inspectors in Britain. It covers social, physiological, musical, and pedagogical aspects of young adolescent singing, with focus on Key Stage 3 (ages 11-14) and the progression from primary school. Grounded in extensive research and authoritatively written, it uses case studies to illustrate best practice, and introduces the principles of cambiata, a dedicated approach to the adolescent voice. Other chapters contain practical and proven advice on repertoire, technique, and the motivation of reluctant singers, boosting the confidence of teachers for whom choral work is not the main specialism.
