Learning Strategies For Musical Success When it comes to musical skill, why is it that some people achieve so much more than others? We are frequently led to believe this is because of a talent hardwired into their DNA. Now, music educator Michael Griffin dismisses that age-old notion in favour of another known factor: practice. His new book, Learning Strategies for Musical Success illustrates how the quantity and quality of practice is the greatest predictor of musical success so that aspiring musicians of all ages and abilities can best bring about expert performance. This inspiring, accessible guide will equip students, teachers, adult learners, and parents with the methods and mindset to improve the likelihood of learning music successfully.

PLAYING WITH COLOUR Piano Books 1-3 by Katherine Fisher & Dr. Julie Knerr Book 1: In the Playing With Colour Series the student will experience coloured notation from page 1, using numbered staves as well as clear graphic illustrations for the right and left hands, so making music starts immediately. Thereafter, theory, rhythm, ear training, improvisation and sight-reading exercises are gradually introduced so the student has the best possible platform on which to build. Book 1 includes many imaginative original pieces like; Waiting for a Train; Hopscotch; and the inevitable Raindrop song, but also familiar classics like: Humpty Dumpty; Ba Ba Black Sheep; Oranges & Lemons; Jingle Bells. 20132UK

Book 2: continues on from where Book 1 left off, but begins to introduce more sight-reading challenges, and includes the stave proper (minus the graphics) bit-by-bit. This way the students hardly notice the changes and assimilate the standard notation effortlessly. Also book 2 focusses on the difficult ‘hands-together’ technique. Initial or Prep tests can be taken at this point. Book 2 includes more imaginative original pieces like; Ghost Stories; Swimming with Dolphins; and the ubiquitous Indian song, but also many useful fun titles like: Sticky Toffee and The Football Match. 20133UK

Book 3: starts the journey to Grade 1 and formal notation. The colourful staves and coloured notation gradually give way to an increase of pieces in standard form and includes some grade one pieces from previous syllabus years so the teacher and student can truly gauge their progress in preparation for their own first graded exam. Book 3 still features imaginative original pieces like; Goodbye Snowman; The Golden Eagle and the delightful Rainy Day Blues; but also many classical former exam pieces by Mozart, Greig, Beethoven and more. 20134UK

CALVIN CUSTER INSTRUMENTAL CHOIR ARRANGEMENTS Swing into jazz with masterful arrangements by Calvin Custer. Provide fun and exciting small ensemble music for school events, community concerts, church ensembles, parties, and many other settings. Flute, clarinet, saxophone, and brass choirs can play jazz and popular standards along with a rhythm section of piano, guitar, bass, and drums.

The written-out solos are also included in the full-performance recordings and serve as models for proper style. Free recordings are downloadable from www.alfred.com and include full-performance and accompaniment tracks for each title. The performance tracks teach jazz, rock, and ballad styles by providing a listening example, as well as the opportunity to play along with the recording. The accompaniment tracks include only piano, guitar, bass, and drums, so, if you don’t have a rhythm section, you can play along with these tracks in rehearsal and performance.

Scale Builder Levels 1-4 In this new series, Scale Builder – a progressive system of scales for Cello, Orfilia Saiz Vega, over four levels, meticulously matches scale development to the appropriate level of technique. Through this, the patterns and rhythms expected of the student at their level of musical competence are precisely those practised. Moreover, the skilful integration of bowing and other techniques specific to the instrument mean that acquiring the scales across a whole range of technical devices means that when they appear in the music they are expected to play, teachers can concentrate on the musical elements safe in the knowledge that the technique is secure. 20144UK Scale Builder - Level 1 20145UK Scale Builder - Level 2 20146UK Scale Builder - Level 3 20147UK Scale Builder - Level 4
