Pages: 253
ISBN: 0195117859
Release: 2000
Editor: Oxford University Press on Demand

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This book is a hands-on investigation of the stages musicians go through as they learn to hear, read, and perform music. It draws on the latest research in music perception and cognition, music theory, and pedagogy, along with centuries of insight from music theorists, composers, and performers. The first part explores the development of music listening skills, including such broader activities as dictation and transcription, and specific abilities such as meter perception, short-term musical memory, and tonic inference. The second part then examines the skills involved in reading and performing music. It looks at such physical skills as vocal production and eye movements and at such complex integrated tasks as sight-singing transpositions and modulations. Throughout the book the author presents these skills in their musical contexts and emphasizes their roles in the general development of musicality. Aural Skills Acquisition builds important bridges between music theory, cognitive psychology, and pedagogy. It subjects ideas from music theory to the rigors of psychological testing and combines findings from the psychology of learning with ideas and methods of contemporary music theory. It will prove an invaluable guide for music teachers, music theorists, and psychologists interested in music perception and cognition.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Today’s music theory instructors face a changing environment, one where the traditional lecture format is in decline. The Routledge Companion to Music Theory Pedagogy addresses this change head-on, featuring battle-tested lesson plans alongside theoretical discussions of music theory curriculum and course design. With the modern student in mind, scholars are developing creative new approaches to teaching music theory, encouraging active student participation within contemporary contexts such as flipped classrooms, music industry programs, and popular music studies. This volume takes a unique approach to provide resources for both the conceptual and pragmatic sides of music theory pedagogy. Each section includes thematic "anchor" chapters that address key issues, accompanied by short "topics" chapters offering applied examples that instructors can readily adopt in their own teaching. In eight parts, leading pedagogues from across North America explore how to most effectively teach the core elements of the music theory curriculum: Fundamentals Rhythm and Meter Core Curriculum Aural Skills Post-Tonal Theory Form Popular Music Who, What, and How We Teach A broad musical repertoire demonstrates formal principles that transcend the Western canon, catering to a diverse student body with diverse musical goals. Reflecting growing interest in the field, and with an emphasis on easy implementation, The Routledge Companion to Music Theory Pedagogy presents strategies and challenges to illustrate and inspire, in a comprehensive resource for all teachers of music theory.

Pages: 493
ISBN: UOM:39015064164901
Release: 1997
Editor: Scarecrow Press

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Though the teaching of aural skills is one of the most important tasks facing the college-level music educator, it is often one of the most problematic, sometimes the most feared. Some of this apprehension undoubtedly arises from the lack of effective pedagogical tools that can reliably and more completely address the needs of the discipline. Functional Hearing fills this void with its unique method of comprehensive ear training. This book not only presents melodies for dictation and sight-singing, but also instructs students in how to develop the skills and strategies to hear and sight-sing unfamiliar music. In addition to presenting harmonic and rhythmic dictations, students are also shown how to listen and use their theoretical knowledge to comprehend the harmonic and rhythmic contexts in which they are listening. The book is divided into seven areas which include: Hearing the Essential Elements of Music; Hearing Quality, Function, and Inversion in Triads; Hearing Quality, Function, and Inversion in Seventh Chords; Hearing Secondary Functions and Modulations; Hearing and Performing in Multiple Parts; Hearing Chromaticism; and Hearing in Nonfunctional Contexts. Together, they incorporate unique and groundbreaking ways to train the ears of developing musicians and to encourage them to acquire a high level of aural skill. Functional Hearing is intended to be used in any aural skills sequence lasting from two to seven semesters, or as a companion text in most traditional courses in music theory. The corresponding Instructor's Manual is available free upon request (1-880157-58-6).

Editor: Pearson College Division

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Fresh on the market, this interactive book helps those musically inclined develop their acumen in sight singing. Organizing each chapter around one musical problem and one rhythmic problem, it contains traditional sight singing materials as well as exercises for composition and analysis, improvisation, and transportation. Beginning with an extensive foreword by an acknowledged expert in the field of music theory pedagogy and aural skills, the book explains how to hear patterns in relation to a tonal center - or, in atonal patterns, how to relate the acquired knowledge from tonal studies to patterns that do not revolve around a tonal center. It presents hundreds of melodies alongside representative works from music literature which are divided in two categories: 1) pedagogically effective tunes that focus on a single problem and include sufficient repetition to insure user mastery, and; 2) melodies spanning the entire range of music literature from the Renaissance to the present day and representing problems in the context of major works of art. It provides warm-up activities that allow users to focus on one problem at a time (i.e., common rhythmic patterns without melodic complications, or pitch patterns without changing rhythms), and offers a variety of ensembles, both newly-composed and from the literature. It also includes an extensive glossary of foreign musical terms and symbols.For musicians, composers, and others in the field of music.
