Conversational Solfege is a dynamic and captivating second through eighth grade general music program that enables students to become independent musical thinkers with the help of a rich variety of folk and classical music.
Teacher's Manual for Level 3 of John Feierabend's Conversational Solfege series.
In this approach, music literacy for Gr. 2-8 begins with great literature and an "ear-before-eye" philosophy that correlates with the National Standards. Traditional songs are broken down into component parts and reassembled to meet the ultimate goal of engaging young musicians to hear, understand, read, write, compose and improvise.
Inside the Teacher’s Guide, you will find units that systematically roll out not only additional rhythm and tonal vocabulary, but also reading in new keys, meters, harmonies, and tonalities.
The new Conversational Solfege Level 3 Teacher's Manual introduces all diatonic tones in major and minor, subdominant harmony, aeolian, and all duple and triple meter signatures.
Paired with the Classical Music CD (21335), you are ready to take your students to a new Level 3!
Central to the Conversational Solfege program is the use of music harvested from our rich and diverse American musical history. This variety of music serves as a common thread that spans and bonds generations. Each book contains varied song material so the teacher can select appropriate music for the lower grades or older beginners.
This 12-step teaching method carefully brings students from readiness to, ultimately, creating music through inner hearing and then transferring their musical thoughts into notation—in other words, to compose music!
This series is a complete, innovative approach to teaching music that will stay fresh year after year.
