Teaching Music through Performance in Orchestra Volume 1

Gain a deeper understanding of string literature...

By Michael Allen, Louis Bergonzi, Jacquelyn Dillon-Krass, Robert Gillespie, James Kjelland, and Dorothy Straub

Compiled and edited by David Littrell and Laura Reed Racin

This valuable guide offers words of wisdom from six successful orchestra teachers with more than 150 years of combined experience. Each writer gives practical advice on subjects ranging from producing well-rounded musicians, rehearsal suggestions, and preparing for festivals to selecting high-quality music.

Part 2 contains thorough analyses of 100 of the most significant works for strings and full orchestra, Grades 1–6. Researched and compiled by scholarly musicians and teachers around the country, the book gives important information on each musical selection, including composer and composition information, historical background, technical requirements, stylistic considerations, musical elements, suggestions for additional listening, and a guide to selected references.

As a reference guide or a college-level text, this volume is ideal for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the repertoire.
