Books about Teaching and Learning

[rev_slider slider7] Teaching and Learning Books One thing we know for sure is that the ways we teach and learn have to change to meet a very new and exciting paradigm of education. What has served us well in the past does not fit the fast moving world in which we exist today. We need to make sure that education in the arts serves, rather than hinders, learning and performance. The avenues of creativity and innovation have never been greater. The open-minded will enjoy this—and those who still live in the past will fight it. Which are you? If you have not heard Ken Robinson’s TED talk, Do Schools Kill Creativity. Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity. Also: Bring on the Learning Revolution. In this poignant, funny follow-up to his fabled 2006 talk, Sir Ken Robinson makes the case for a radical shift from standardized schools to personalized learning — creating conditions where kids’ natural talents can flourish.

The Singing Book-Spiral-Bound

[rev_slider slider7] The Singing Book [Spiral-Bound] Authors : Meribeth Dayme and Cynthia Vaughn Available:Amazon(UK)  Amazon(USA) Amazon Review Unlike other texts, The Singing Book gets students singing on the very first day of class. The authors’ “Sing first, talk later” philosophy encourages beginning students to sing without judging or constraining themselves, which is an essential prerequisite for learning repertoire and the more technical aspects of the vocal mechanism. The Singing Book‘s thoughtfully crafted three-part structure begins with motivational chapters, then systematically builds vocal strength and skill through carefully chosen repertoire, and finally introduces important information on the major aspects of developing healthy vocal techniques. Suitable for all skill levels and voice types, The Singing Book provides an anthology of over sixty songs, chosen specifically for the beginning singer. A 2-CD set (sold separately) provides melody, rhythm guides, and piano accompaniments for all selections in the anthology (with additional keys available on the Student Web Site), and the text’s useful appendices feature methods for preparing song texts, extra warm-ups and vocalises, a guide to the International Phonetic Alphabet, and a brief primer on reading music. About the Authors Meribeth Dayme, an authority on the singing voice, has given master classes in singing throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe.
