Seven years in the making, this classic survey of music for the piano is the most comprehensive manual of its kind in English. It achieves a well-rounded treatment of the entire spectrum of the pianistic repertoire, from the pavanes and galliards of Byrd and Gibbons to the bewildering diversity of forms composed today. In a format making for quick and easy reference, it comprises direct and carefully researched brief characterizations of every major work, as well as an enormous number of minor works, composed for the piano by more than 500 composers between 1580 and 1952. The annotations to each piece touch on form, type of fingerwork, degree of difficulty, technical requirements and interpretative treatment, and always include the publisher's name. Critical essays on periods and styles appear where necessary.No other single publication covers such a wide range of material. Not only the solo piano literature is included, but also works for four hands at one and two pianos as well as concertos for piano and orchestra. The selection has many remarkable features, not least of which is a comprehensive view of Latin American music that sends the pianist beyond Villa-Lobos to the works of such lesser-known masters as Bosmans, Paz, Ginastera, Guarnieri, and the Castros. In the case of s...

Kodály in the First Grade Classroom: Developing the
Since the mid-twentieth century, Zoltán Kodály's child-developmental philosophy for teaching music has had significant positive impact on music education around the world, and is now at the core of music teaching in the United States and other English speaking countries. The Kodály Today handbook series is the first comprehensive system to update and apply the Kodály concepts to teaching music in elementary school classrooms.Kodály in the First Grade Classroom provides teachers with a step-by-step road map for developing children's performance, creative movement, and literacy skills in an organic and thoughtful manner. Through six years of field-testing with music kindergarten teachers in the United States, Great Britain, and Hungary (the home country of Zoltán Kodály), authors Micheál Houlahan and Philip Tacka have developed a methodology specifically for 21st century classrooms. Houlahan and Tacka use the latest research findings in cognition and perception to create a system not only appropriate for the developmental stages of first grade students but also one which integrates vertically between elementary music classes. The methods outlined in this volume encourage greater musical ability and creativity in children by teaching them to sing, move, play instruments, and...
