From Folk Songs to Masterworks
Shipping international restrictions confirmation
Ann Eisen’s "From Folk Songs to Masterworks" presents a Kodaly-based approach to music listening, By presenting classical music selections in the same manner as folk songs and games, young students will gain an equal appreciation for these masterworks (art music). This collection is divided into sections by grade, although most of the lesson fragments can be used interchangeably among all grades.
77 art music examples and lessons are included. The art music examples come from a variety of composers including Bach, Haydn, Beethoven, Debussy, Copland, Bartok, and others. Background information is given for each musical example as well as abbreviated examples of music scores included for the teacher's benefit.
Each lesson has an art music selection, music element focus, background information, abbreviated art music score and music lesson fragment (folk song score and teaching procedure). If a singing game is used, the game directions are included. CD recordings (4-disc set) of the art music are incorporated for classroom use.
Recommended for grades K - 6.
