Skills in research and scholarship introduce students to the language and protocols by which to succeed in today’s competitive market of grant writing, arts advocacy, and public outreach as a contributing member of the community of music educators.
Following the legacy begun by Rainbow and Froehlich in Research in Music Education, published in 1987, the objectives of this book are:
To expand what is meant by music education and research,
To help students find their niche in those definitions, and
To teach tangible skills that are useful for music educators with diverse instructional goals and career aspirations.
This book presents 100 arrangements of favorite Christmas carols and advent hymns for violin solo with guitar accompaniment. Suggested chordal accompaniment is included for each solo so that any chordal instrument can accompany the violin. The author has also indicated whether the guitarist should use fingerstyle or strum accompaniment.
The music in this book spans centuries and represents a wonderful assortment of solos which may be used as preludes or offertories throughout the various seasons in the church year.
Learner-centered teaching provides an approach to music education that encourages social, interactive, culturally responsive, creative, peer-based, open-formed, facilitated and democratic learning. Chapter 1 defines the what, why, and perceived benefits of learner-centered approaches in music teaching and learning contexts Chapters 2-10 will include example lesson plans, rubrics, etc. as models for teachers. The contributors to this book suggest that learner-centered approaches, when embedded into the culture and curricular framework of a music classroom, offer exciting approaches for teaching music in ways that are culturally and educationally appropriate in contemporary education.
MAKIN SENSE WITH MUSIC is a tried and tested program (Book and/or CD) that is the result of successfully teaching the understanding and appreciation of the beauty and wonder of music to people of all ages and all walks of life. In it Professor Procopio has unlocked the language of music and made it as understandable as one's own language.
As a lifetime composer, musician and music teacher Joe Procopio has re-mastered and released his guide to understanding the language of music that he developed for over 30 years and taught as an educator to thousands of successful students worldwide. This method is now available in the iTunes music store, Amazon, CD Baby, etc. as the CD or Book entitled MAKING SENSE WITH MUSIC. Now, for the first time, the average person as well as the trained musician can not only listen but also understand all kinds of music easily.
With MAKING SENSE WITH MUSIC, you need not be a musician or even be able to read music in order to master the language of music. This unique method teaches the listener to become fluent in the language of music by turning musical ideas into words and sentences that anyone can make sense of.
With MAKING SENSE WITH MUSIC, Procopio demonstrates how small groups of notes are used by composers to convey meaning in music. Each of six devices is clearly explained with musical examples and completed works of music. For example, one composition depicts an argument between a woman and a man using one saxophone for the woman's voice and another saxophone for the man's.
MAKING SENSE WITH MUSIC is now available in a completely digital format and delivery, allowing a new generation of music lovers around the world to download new meaning into their music.
