Teaching Singing to Children and Young Adults 2ed (Paperback)
Following on from the enormous popularity of the first edition, this exciting new edition provides yet more practically relevant information for everyone working with children's voices.
Completely new content includes much more up-to-date material on how to deliver information and exercises to the student. Learning new skills is not purely about repetition, the style and variety of information delivery from the teacher is crucial. The author has incorporated the latest research from sports science and the psychology of learning in order to explain lesson structure and the nature and frequency of feedback. New information from classroom teaching has given us useful guidance for effective group teaching. The nature of creativity and the particular needs of the creative child are explored in the light of recent research in psychology and learning.
