Hanging out with Alfred Music at the

MTNA CONFERENCE in los angeles By Elissa Milne

The MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) conference is convened every March in a different city in the United States of America. Last year it was New York; this year Los Angeles. (In 2015, Las Vegas, for those who like to gamble AND plan ahead.)

S

trictly speaking the MTNA Conference this year was held in Anaheim (Orange County is not the same thing as Los Angeles, I was assured by locals). Even more strictly speaking - at Disneyland. Literally. So the decision to attend this year’s MTNA conference was made for me by my family. Who spent 4 days in the happiest place on earth while I experienced one of the biggest music teacher conferences on earth!

publishers, exam boards and instrument manufacturers present showcases to highlight their latest products and services. And did I mention the performance competitions that are held throughout the conference? It’s a hive of musical and pedagogical activity. A lot of the action happens in the Exhibit Hall, where publishers and manufacturers congregate to display their wares.

Alfred are a massive part of the North American music education scene, and their display area in the Exhibit Hall took pride of place. My Little Peppers and Pepperbox Jazz series were part of the Alfred display (my publisher, Faber Music, is distributed in Australia and the US by Alfred), and I was quickly made to feel part of the extended Alfred family! Hanging out at the Alfred stands I had the chance to discover the newest, hottest

This conference is huge. Keynote addresses and masterclasses are held in huge ballrooms that can accommodate every conference attendee, and there are up to five different events on at any given time, so just working out the timetable of events you want to attend requires some pretty serious homework. Nearly any teaching topic that might interest a piano teacher is covered, and

publications coming off the Alfred presses – and to chat with the authors. Nancy Bachus (who is touring Australia in June and July*!) has two extraordinary repertoire series published by Alfred. The Exploring Piano Classics series now extends to Level 5 (Grade 4/5 standard) with Repertoire and matching Technique books. The Repertoire collections are excellent, but I am particularly excited by the Level 5 Technique book: all kinds of voicing and balance exercises, introductions to trills and mordents, a range of ways to practice extended chord progressions, detailed arpeggio work, cantabile tone and alternating between different kinds of touch. I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen a book so well suited to the technical needs of Grade 4 and 5 pianists. This book (and the Level 4 Technique, an essential prequel) will become an indispensible resource for developing and strengthening all the pianistic skills needed to go on to harder repertoire. Level 5 Repertoire pieces are microcosms of the technical skills being explored in the Technique book: easier, rather than harder, to allow for maximum success and minimum irritation! Cherished classics (Tchaikovsky’s Sweet Dreams, Opus 39, No.21; Bach’s Minuet from the French Suite in E major, No.6) and some lesser known works (by Gershwin and Maykapar, for example), are introduced with beautifully written historical and stylistic notes: you’ll want all your Grade I then discovered a series called Belwin Contest Winners. The title of the series doesn’t mean much to those of us outside North America, but these are great collections of sheet music-style solos for beginner piano students, nearly all written in the 50s and 60s. Book 1 is for students who have been learning for between a term and a year. My favourite pieces include Little Frog (Louise Garrow) and Distant Chimes (Jon George) both published in 1969. [Hello, hipsters.] Book 2 is roughly Preliminary standard, although the pieces are a bit longer

“Hanging out at the Alfred stands I had the chance to discover the newest, hottest publications coming off the Alfred presses – and to chat with the authors.” than we’d normally expect at this level. Tricky Traffic (Louise Garrow, again!) and Blinky the Robot (David Carr Glover) are my current favourites, from 1967 and 1960 respectively, both unbelievably clever pieces that kids will love the feel and the sound of. Book 3 heads into Grade 2 territory. Aeolian Harp (William Gillock) is a complete surprise. Very hard to believe that this very contemporary-sounding piece was written in 1957- you will love it. Book 4 is most appropriate for Grade 5 standard students, with extended recitalappropriate pieces that will intrigue (The Peacock, by Olive Dungan) and charm (Lament, by Gilbert Allen). Alfred’s newest repertoire collection is Classics for the Developing Pianist, compiled by two of North America’s most respected teachers. This is a 5 book, 100 piece collection/curriculum: a top of the pops collection of classics for piano lessons! Book 3 includes many Grade 5 favourites, while Book 4 is more at the Grade 6/7 level, and Book 5 is Grade 8 standard. Great selections and great value for advanced students. Also catching my eye on the Alfred stands was a new Dancing on the Keys book by Catherine Rollin. This series is a collection of original pieces in a range of dance styles (Rumba, Gigue, Mazurka, Cha Cha, Paso Doble, etc.) and Book 3 has 5 new pieces at Grade 3 and 4 Piano for Leisure standard. Focussing on dance styles is a brilliant concept, and these books are great fun. It wasn’t just books I was seeing at the conference: Dan Coates is one of my alltime favourite Alfred authors, and I was really excited to chat with him in person! Dan has new arrangements coming out

all the time, but I just love reminding people about Dan’s own original pieces. “Classical Folly”, from his collection With You In Mind, is a seriously fun piece for Grade 5/6 standard students. Order it in. Teach it. You will thank me! Alfred hosted an Author Appreciation cocktail party during the conference, and getting to hang out with Dan and with Nancy Bachus, Dennis Alexander, Jane McGrath, Robert Vandall, Gayle Kowalchyk, E.L. Lancaster and others was a delight. But the biggest highlight for me was getting to meet Morty and Iris Manus, the founders of Alfred Publishing. They are an inspiration. And having met them I understand how it is that Alfred consistently bring out so many fascinating collections that meet the needs of piano teachers: they have a perfect blend of drive, vision and humility – just the qualities each one of us as teachers need. Now, of course, I can hardly wait to get to the next conference…! *Nancy Bachus is a guest presenter at this year’s Australasian Piano Pedagogy Conference being held in Toowoomba and is doing a workshop tour in Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

RHYTHMIC AND HARMONIC

INNOVATIONS

Part 1: TEACHING/UNDERSTANDING LATE 19th And early 20th century music by Nancy Bachus

I

t is difficult to generalise about music at the turn of the twentieth century because there was such a wide diversity of styles. Composers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries were consciously trying to express their individuality and did not care if they were breaking compositional rules and traditions that had been accepted for the previous 300 years. Some composers were incorporating different (not major or minor)scales and other elements found in their native folk music. A new rhythmic and harmonic vitality was thus added to their music. Because it may ‘look’ and ‘sound’ different than earlier styles, music from this time period can be intimidating to both students and teachers. Looking more carefully, the basic elements of music are still present, but are used in innovative ways.

Rhythm – Changing Meters

For several years Bela Bartok (1881-1945) travelled to remote villages of Hungary (and neighbouring countries) recording folk music sung and played by peasants. In Hungarian Song (No. 32 from For Children, Part 1), he added an accompaniment to the song, and in the opening of the piece, the meter changes from 3/4 to 2/4 every two bars. Changing meters are necessary for notation and re-creation of the exact melody he heard sung by the villagers. The crotchet should be steady and the first beat of each bar accented to help the listener hear these changing meters.

Rhythm – Without Meter or Barlines

Rhythm has traditionally been notated with time signatures (such as 2/4 or 6/8) that specify how many beats are in one bar of music and what note value is the unit of measure. One meter would typically remain throughout a section or even an entire composition. In The Vast Expanse of Space, the Russian composer Vladimir Rebikov (1866-1920) does not use a time signature or divide the piece into bars. It looks strange, but by keeping the crotchet steady and playing all the notes in relation to the crotchet pulse, it is not difficult to comprehend or play.

Hungarian Song by Bela Bartok, Beyond the Romantic Spirit, Book 1, page 38

Other Uses of Folk Rhythms

Throughout this period, composers in many countries (not just Hungary) were interested in folk elements of their nation and used folk music in their compositions. In Cuba, Ignacio Cervantes (1847-1905) used a habanera rhythm pattern of Afro-Cuban origin in his Los tres golpes (The Three Strikes).

The Vast Expanse of Space, by Vladimir Rebikov, Beyond the Romantic Spirit Book 1, page 20

04 PIANO PERSPECTIVES

Los tres golpes by Ignacio Cervantes, Beyond the Romantic Spirit, Book 1, page 50


Tangos, such as Remando by Ernesto Nazareth (18631934) also use similar rhythm patterns.

Remando (Tango) by Ernesto Nazareth, Beyond the Romantic Spirit, Book 2, page 53

American minstrel shows popularised the Cake-Walk dance that also incorporates a habanera pattern. These shows appeared in Europe and Claude Debussy (1862-1918) captures the spirit of the dance with its catchy rhythms in his piano pieces Golliwog’s Cake-Walk and Le Petit Negre.

Le Petit Negre by Claude Debussy, Beyond the Romantic Spirit, Book 1, page 61.

Debussy wrote piano music in many different styles throughout his life and much of his music does not have regularly recurring accents. He preferred a flow of sound that obscured bar divisions as he tried to free music from “the tyranny of the barline”1 as he put it. Bars 11 and 12 from his Album Leaf illustrate his way of writing fluid rhythms that blur the bar divisions.

Rhythmic Ostinatos

Another popular compositional device of early twentieth century composers was the rhythmic ostinato or a continuosly repeated figure most often found in the left-hand. When this occurs, the right hand usually moves independently from the left hand with its own rhythmic and harmonic implications. When performing this music, the left hand should be “blended” so that a single colour is created, rather than hearing each note distinctly. Commonly found in music that is “impressionistic”2 in style, the ostinato creates atmosphere and serves as a background for the principle line(s). Isaac Albeniz (1860-1909) uses this device in Capricho catalan.

Capricho catalan by Isaac Albeniz, Beyond the Romantic Spirit, Book 1, page 42

As the nineteenth century came to a close, melody became less important as composers revitalised rhythm and brought it to the forefront of their works. Twentieth century composer Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971) believed that “Rhythm and motion...are the foundations of musical art.”3 The second part of this article will look at some fresh approaches to harmony used by composers at the turn of the twentieth century. In the fourth century B.C., Plato wrote in his Republic, “Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other because rhythm and harmony find their way into the secret places of the soul.”4

beyond the romantics

BEYOND THE Part 2: TEACHING/UNDERSTANDING LATE 19th And early 20th century music by Nancy Bachus

In the previous article, 20th century innovations in rhythm were discussed with the last one being a rhythmic ostinato with a melodic line moving independently above it. This is a compositional device that is commonly used in music from this time period. Since the ostinato and the moving line(s) above it are frequently in different tonalities, this was one way of moving away from major/minor tonality that was the basis for harmony from 1600-1900.

Whole-Tone Scale

Introducing whole-tone scales was another way composers introduced new sounds and harmonies. In the late 19th century Claude Debussy, Vladimir Rebikov, and others used a scale that divided the octave into six equal (whole-step) parts with no half step divisions.

The Whole-Tone Scales

The lack of half-steps gives a sense of vagueness since there is no pull for resolution to any note. The melody in Rebikov’s The Bear is built upon a whole tone scale played over an ostinato bass.

The Bear by Vladimir Rebikov, Beyond the Romantic Spirit, Book 1, 26

Bi-tonality

Using two different tonalities simultaneously, known as bi-tonality, is what Heitor Villa-Lobos does in O Polichinelo. Pentatonic (a scale consisting of the five black piano keys) figures sound against other patterns in C major. The clashing sounds help to portray the drama and energy of the popular clown puppet Punch (from Punch and Judy shows), who carried a stick and had a habit of knocking over anyone who disagreed with him. Punch the clown

O Polichinelo by Heitor Villa-Lobos, Beyond the Romantic Spirit, Book 2, 56


Polychordal Harmony

At first glance Rebikov’s Vast Expanse of Space would appear to be another example of bi-tonality. The right hand is firmly in C major while the left hand plays different triads. Since the left hand is not firmly in any key or tonality, this is known as polychordal harmony rather than bi-tonality.

Octave Displacement

Other composers, such as Carl Nielsen (18651931) use traditional triads, but they placed one note of the chord an octave higher than the other chord tones (known as octave displacement). This obscures the sound of the triad and confuses the ear. After the pattern is repeated several times, the ear “adjusts,” hearing familiarity. Nielsen’s Jumping Jack opens with C minor and F-sharp diminished triads, but one note in each chord is an octave higher than the others.

Vast Expanse of Space by Vladimir Rebekov, Beyond the Romantic Spirit, Book 1, 20

Atonality

As composers expressed a wider range of emotions, their music became more and more chromatic and dissonant with tonal centres less clear. The techniques mentioned above, the use of whole-tone and pentatonic scales, bi-tonality, and octave displacement all contributed to the break down of traditional tonality until some composers completely rejected the idea of a tonal centre. This became known as atonality. In his Prelude No. 2, Charles Griffes uses nine of the 12 tones of the octave within two measures giving an atonal feel. Without a tonal centre, composers must organise the music in a different way. Griffes does this through repetition of a motive.

Prelude No. 2 by Charles Griffes, Beyond the Romantic Spirit, Book 1, 34

Looking back on the 20th century, incredible advancements in science and technology can be observed that changed the everyday life of individuals. It is exciting to realize that composers were also innovative and developed new rhythmic and harmonic techniques to better express their thoughts and emotions. Claude Debussy spoke for many when he said, “A century of aeroplanes deserves its own music. As there are no precedents, I must create anew.” Nancy Bachus is author of Beyond the Romantic Spirit, books 1 and 2, and of the Spirit series of books. An active teacher, recitalist and Alfred clinician, she has had numerous articles published in Clavier, Keyboard Companion and Junior Keynotes.

IMPROVISATION STRATEGIES

Strategies for

to Beginners By Tim Topham

Ever wondered how to approach teaching students basic non-jazz improvisation?

W

e know that as teachers, in order to provide our students with a holistic musical education, we should be incorporating aural, theory, sight-reading, general knowledge, composition and improvisation into our lessons on a regular basis. However for many teachers, it’s hard to know where to start… or where to find the time! UK Teacher and Author Paul Harris really got me thinking about this recently through his concept of

10 PIANO PERSPECTIVES

Simultaneous Learning. Put simply, if you compartmentalise all the above aspects of your lesson, you’ll never have time to do it all. Instead, Harris recommends finding all the connections between these areas and integrating them regularly into everything you do in your lessons. His book Improve Your Teaching explains it in detail and is a highly recommended resource for teachers. I shall be blogging about my own experience with Simultaneous Learning in the near future.


IV – V – I. Of course music often goes to lots of other places, but fundamentally compositions have to start and end on the tonic (I) and go somewhere in the middle (normally V at some stage). n W  ith just these three chords, students can start making up their own compositions. n T hey help students recognise harmonic movement in their pieces – great for improving their sight-reading. Take a composition in the key of C. Centre yourself around C on the Circle of 5ths and you’ll find that one chord to the right is the V chord (G); one chord to the left is the IV chord (F). The secondary triads (relative minors) are inside the circle: A, Em and Dm. Together, these six chords can create quite substantial compositions.

I’m a huge believer in the importance of teaching improvising to students from as early as possible in their music education. It’s a fundamental musical skill that is fun and helps develop an innate understanding of: n Harmony n Chord progressions n Voice leading n Structure/Form n Rhythm n Listening/Aural skills Best of all, students don’t need to be able to read a note to do it, which makes it a fun and non-threatening warm-up for the start of a lesson. Please note that for the purposes of this article, I’m talking about non-jazz improvising. Students can improvise reasonably easily using a blues scale over a blues or boogie pattern, but what about composing music more in-line with film music, ballads, pop and classical?

Many of you will be familiar with the image to the right, called the “Circle of 5ths”. Do you use it in your teaching? Do you get students to work around the circle when learning scales and/or chords? Perhaps you have it on the wall for quick reference to keys, related scales and key signatures. I believe the most musical use of the circle is in teaching students about harmony and chord progressions. Most of you will teach students about the primary triads (I, IV, V) in some way. Perhaps students learn about the 12bar blues progression, which uses only the primary triads, or maybe they study them as part of their theory instruction.

Whenever my students start a new piece, I drill them on the chords they are likely to find in the piece using their understanding of the Circle of 5ths. Students quickly realise the importance of the relationship between the chords and are able to accurately guess the chord progressions they are likely to find in their pieces. This of course, makes reading the music much easier as they are already looking for structures and shapes they understand. Head to my blog timtopham.com to see a video of how I introduce improvising to my students. If this is not the sort of thing you usually do with your students, then I hope you’ll give it a try.

Whatever the method, learning the primary triads in any given key is really useful because: n The primary triads make up the most fundamental chordal movement in just about any piece of music – classical or pop. At its simplest, tonal music moves I – V – I, often passing through IV chord on the way: I –

“ After so many cantatas I only play for fun. My original work is for the fans.”

But what is an urtext edition? At Bärenreiter the label “urtext” describes a scholarly-

Bärenreiter Urtext: Your next performance is worth it. Think of the time you spend practising and rehearsing

for lessons and concerts. Can you really be sure that the

music you play from reflects what the composer wanted? Indeed, works have always been edited reflecting the

taste of the time, often leading to a gradual deviation from what the composer had in mind. Most copied

or downloaded music comes from old, heavily edited or even faulty editions. How disappointing to realise that

you have wasted your time and energy on a musical text you cannot trust.

With Bärenreiter Urtext editions you can have confidence in the validity of the musical text.

critical edition based on all known sources.

In the past, it has often been difficult for musicians

to really know if what they were playing was true to

the composer’s intentions. Publications were heavily elaborated with editors’ own – often questionable –

additions and interpretations. In order to adequately

judge the quality of an edition, musicians would need to examine manuscripts and sources themselves.

Bärenreiter takes on all this background work for you, our aim being to produce urtext editions reflecting

the latest musicological research. Our editors, experts in their field, strive to set down a work as closely as

possible to the composer’s intentions. This isn’t as easy as it sounds. Bärenreiter’s musicologists often have

to travel around the world to track down sources for

a composition. They work like detectives, deciphering manuscripts which are sometimes almost illegible and evaluating conflicting sources.

Dave Brubeck, working closely with his protegé John Salmon, has written a volume of newly composed works for the jazz piano world.

The Dave Brubeck Quartet’s 1959 album Time Out changed the sound of jazz and American music. Brubeck’s experimentation with time signature, harmony and even Turkish rhythms eventually earned him the cover of Time Magazine; the first jazz musician to achieve such a feat. Saxophonist Paul Desmond’s composition “Take Five” went on to become the first million-selling jazz instrumental single on the Billboard Hot 100. This folio celebrates the album’s 50th anniversary with full-colour artwork from the original record, and a 10 page write-up from jazz historian Ted Gioia. All seven compositions from the monumental recording-- just as Brubeck played them - are featured in this collectable folio.

Simply Brubeck is a collection of Dave Brubeck’s most engaging compositions. Phrase markings, articulations, fingering and dynamics have been included to aid with interpretation, and a large print size makes the notation easy to read.

by Jack Fina

Pianist, composer, and bandleader Jack Fina’s popular 1946 hit, “Bumble Boogie,” is based on Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Flight of the Bumble Bee.” Lucy Wilde Warren’s arrangement for two-pianos, eight-hands is written for late-intermediate pianists and set up as two duets (Piano 1 and Piano 2) with the primo and secondo parts on facing pages. A conductor’s score is included. This high-energy audience pleaser is fun to play while providing important listening skills, technique, rhythmic control, and musicianship.

Abram Chasins

Franz Schubert

Three Chinese Pieces

Allegro in A Minor, Op. 144, D. 947 (“Lebensstürme”)

American composer Abram Chasins became well known for his solo piano suite Three Chinese Pieces (1926). Each movement sounds out the mood implied by its title: sorrow (“A Shanghai Tragedy”), romance (“Flirtation in a Chinese Garden”), and breathtaking frenzy (“Rush Hour in Hong Kong”). Tempos and technical demands fluctuate from Lento through Presto agitato.

NEW! Book (A)......................... 40822

Ed. Maurice Hinson and Allison Nelson

The Allegro in A Minor (“Lebensstürme”), Op. 144, demonstrates Schubert’s mastery at writing for one piano, four hands. This large and passionate work is written in sonata-allegro form and may have been intended as the first movement of a sonata.

NEW! Book & CD (A)............... 40322

Ludwig van Beethoven Sonata in D Major, Op. 6

Ed. Gayle Kowalchyk and E. L. Lancaster Beethoven’s lighthearted Sonata in D Major, Op. 6, is his only sonata for one piano, four hands. This duet has been carefully edited and fingered for performance ease. Measure numbers are included, and the primo and secondo parts are on facing pages. Essential ornamentation is realised in footnotes.

NEW! Book (LI)........................40088

Francis Poulenc

Fantasie in F Minor, Op. 103, D. 940 Ed. Maurice Hinson and Allison Nelson

The Fantasie in F minor, Op. 103, is considered one of the great masterpieces of ensemble piano repertoire. Its four connected movements demonstrate Schubert’s mature style and contain lovely melodies, dramatic gestures, a brilliant scherzo, and a virtuosic fugue.

NEW! Book & CD (A)............... 40326

Rondo in A Major, Op. 107, D. 951

Ed. Maurice Hinson and Allison Nelson

Sonata for Piano, Four Hands

The Rondo in A Major, Op. 107, demonstrates Schubert’s mastery at writing for one piano, four hands. The work’s lyrical themes are highly decorative, treated freely, and full of exciting rhythms.

Based on the 1919 edition, this work has been carefully edited and fingered for performance ease. Measures are numbered for convenient reference, and the primo and secondo parts are on facing pages. Editorial metronome suggestions are included. Poulenc’s French instructions appear along with English translations.

The Two Characteristic Marches, Op. 121, were composed in 1826 and are the only marches that Schubert wrote for piano duet that are in 6/8. Both marches are in C major and are scherzolike in mood, revealing Schubert’s fondness for sudden dynamic changes, his musical wit, and his fine melodic writing.
