Essential Preparation for Beginning Instrumental Music Instruction
What is appropriate readiness for instrumental music instruction?
How can we prepare children for maximum success on their instrument?
And why are dropout rates so high?
In this challenging book, renowned musiceducator Edwin E. Gordon states that many students drop out of beginning instrumental music for one simple reason: they do not have the necessary musicalreadiness to learn what beginning instrumental educators are attempting to teach.
With Essential Preparation for Beginning Instrumental Music Instruction, Dr. Gordon arms teachers with the tools to prepare students for success when they begin an instrument.
Dr. Gordon argues that teachers musthelp students build appropriate musical vocabularies as readiness, much like a child learns a vocabulary of words before learning to read and write.
In this book, Dr. Gordon outlines how to build a Listening Vocabulary, a Singing and Chanting Vocabulary, an Improvisation Vocabulary, a Reading Vocabulary, and a Writing Vocabulary. This thought-provoking and practical book provides tools for building all of these vocabularies in young musicians, setting the stage forunprecedented success in beginning instrumental music.
