THE SINGING

MUSICIAN

2nd Edition, CHORAL TEXTBOOK SERIES

The Singing Musician  offers music reading exercises, literature in sequence, theory, music history, listening activities, vocal production, concert etiquette, expression, and creativity.

 

Level 1 is written for the beginning choral student - it's based on the Orff philosophy and uses Movable Do, solfege hand signs, open-fifth accompaniments, Orff orchestrations and Kodaly rhythmic syllables. It moves slowly and presumes no prior music reading knowledge on the part of the student.

 

The series provides:

  • An in-depth coverage of state and national standards

  • Sequential learning based upon music literacy skills

  • Material in multiple voicings at Levels 2-4

  • Literature that supports the learning sequence

  • The ability to encourage and promote student independence and creativity

  • An objective observable and measurable assessment

  • A tool that lends itself to vertical and horizontal curriculum alignment throughout a school, district and state.
