Now more than ever, the ability to sight-read fluently is an essential part of the pianist's training, whether playing alone, as an accompanist or with ensemble. This workbook is designed to help overcome the nerves that can cause sight-reading problems. Step by step it helps the player create a complete picture of each piece, first through rhythmic and melodic exercises related to specific problems, then by the study of prepared pieces with associated questions for the student to answer, then finally to the real, unprepared sight-reading test itself. Check-boxes for each stage allow both teacher and pupil to evaluate progress.

An Index to Articles Published in The Etude Magazine 1883 1957 Chronological index Author index

Author: Pamela Richardson Dennis
Publisher: A-R Editions, Inc.
ISBN: 0895797119
Release Date: 2011
Genre: Reference

As America's geography and societal demands expanded, the topics in The Etude magazine (first published in 1883) took on such important issues as women in music; immigration; transportation; Native American and African American composers and their music; World War I and II; public schools; new technologies (sound recordings, radio, and television); and modern music (jazz, gospel, blues, early 20th century composers) in addition to regular book reviews, teaching advice, interviews, biographies, and advertisements. Though a valued source particularly for private music teachers, with the de-emphasis on the professional elite and the decline in salon music, the magazine ceased publication in 1957. This Index to the articles in The Etude serves as a companion to E. Douglas Bomberger¿s 2004 publication on the music in The Etude. Published a little over fifty years after the final issue reached the public, this Index chronicles vocal and instrumental technique, composer biographies, position openings, department store orchestras, the design of a successful music studio, how to play an accordion, recital programs in music schools, and much more. The Index is a valuable tool for research, particularly in the music culture of American in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. With titles of these articles available, the doors are now open for further research in the years to come. The Index is published in two parts and sold as a set for $250.00.
