Teaching Strings:

Enabling String Methods for all Music Educators

Y

By Victor Vallo Jr.

ears ago when I interviewed for my first public school music teaching job to be a high school and middle school band director, one of the first questions I was asked was, “Can you teach a section of Beginning/Intermediate Strings?” I already had a working knowledge of strings from my Strings Methods course at the university where I received my bachelor’s degree in Music Education. Consequently, my answer was a confident, “Yes.” If I had said, “No,” I most probably would not have been offered the job. But then again, how much does one String Methods course, with or without private lessons, prepare someone for teaching strings at the elementary, middle school, and/or high school levels? One of the things I’ve noticed over the years as both a secondary school and college level music teacher is that teaching strings is similar to teaching any other music course. It requires first a passion for music, a passion to teach, and subject matter knowledge – in this case, a functional knowledge of the violin, viola, cello, and bass. The Strings Methods course did provide some good and usable basic information about all the orchestral string instruments. I also decided later on to learn more about these instruments on my own through private viola and cello lessons, while also keeping my major instrument, trumpet, going. From these experiences I have learned many lessons, suggestions, and tips on teaching strings and program building which hopefully will help school band directors and elementary music teachers feel a little more comfortable teaching strings to elementary, middle, and high school students.

The Basics First of all, music teachers who are primarily band directors, choral directors, and elementary music teachers can teach strings. What this means is that as a music teacher, you must remember that you are there to teach “music,” and the use of string instruments is 10

the means to do so. With this frame of mind, think of string instruments as the tools of your trade. What this also means is that one should refresh oneself, if needed, on the basics of string instrument playing and pedagogy which we all learned in college. Yes, you took the String Methods course some time ago as a Music Education major in college. That being said, you should already know what a good string sound is and how to produce it, as well as what the correct holding positions for the bow and the instrument are. Tuning the instrument in perfect 5ths (violin, viola, cello) and perfect 4ths (bass) is also something we learned, especially since we know what P5s and P4s should sound like. When tuning, moving the pegs is similar in concept to moving the mouthpieces on woodwind instruments and tuning slides on brass instruments. Think of the acronym SOFI: Sharp Out, Flat In. If the peg is sticking, always loosen the peg (out) first before tightening (in) to avoid popping a string. This little trick can save some time and money in replacing broken strings. Tune sharp at first so that as you tighten the lower strings, the upper tunings will descend in pitch making it easier now to simply using the fine tuners on the tailpiece

to make those final and safe tuning adjustments. Once the basics of good tuning, holding position, and instrument care are taught and learned by your students, this would be about the time when two sequential components of teaching strings should be taught separately and then combined: right-hand skills (bowing) followed by left-hand skills (finger placement on the strings).

Right-Hand Skills (Bowing) Just like each family of brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments has the same basic concept of sound production within each family, so it is with strings. The bow, like the mouthpiece and the mallet, is used to vibrate the string and start the sound. Again, make sure that your students have a good concept of – and can demonstrate – correct bow hold and bow movement. It would be a good idea to first teach your students how to first hold the bow at the balance point (right above the winding and bow grip) so that their fingers and thumb can be relaxed while holding the bow. When they become comfortable with this, move their bow hold to the frog part of the bow. Do this by demonstrating to the students the correct way to hold the bow in the right hand, keeping the fingers on the bow grip and frog at all times and, of course, a bent thumb at the joint. Don’t forget to show your students how to properly tighten and loosen the bow hairs before and after all practices and rehearsals. Once the bow hold is demonstrably correct and comfortable in the hands of the students, there are various ways to make sure that the sound has good tone quality. Some basics of playing using the bow are: 1) Use even weight of the full bow on each string. 2) Use index finger to transfer weight on bow as it moves toward tip. 3) Use index finger to diminish weight on the bow as it moves toward the frog. 4) Use full and even bow strokes, keeping a steady bow speed. 5) Keep the bow perpendicular to the string at all times. 6) Tilt hair of bow toward the bridge for evenness of sound. 7) Breathe in before starting phrases that begin with down-bow strokes.

Using Tech for Improv and Composition

While there are more details about right-hand skills (bowing), these fundamental bowing concepts should be the thread that helps form the basis for advanced string bowing.

Left-Hand Skills Once students are comfortable with holding and using the bow, it would be good to start the second part of this learning sequence, which is teaching the left-hand skills of finger placement on the strings. In this way, the concept and sequence of learning one thing at a time can be used to reinforce each skill before they are combined together. In general, strive for teaching familiarity with the strings by first learning to pluck or pizzicato each open string. Most methods books usually start with this approach, which also serves in helping students reinforce the names of the strings as they cross over to other strings.

The goal for the teacher is to build both skill and confidence in the students, who, after development of these basics, should be ready, willing, and able to move on to developing more technical skills.

Teaching Strings:

10 Performance: String Methods Victor Vallo of Georgia College & State University presents effective string methods that all music educators can use.

One of the things I’ve noticed over the years as both a secondary school and college level music teacher is that teaching strings is similar to teaching any other music course. It requires first a passion for music, a passion to teach, and subject matter knowledge – in this case, a functional knowledge of the violin, viola, cello, and bass.

Although music educators come in all shapes and sizes, Dr. David Snyder looks into the more common personality traits within the profession, as indicated by a recent six-year study on the subject.

chestra has thrown a spotlight on music educators who are thriving in spite of the downturns around us. And some of our finest innovators are using technology to come up with epic solutions. One such innovator is Barbara Freeman, of Greenwich, Connecticut, TI:ME’s 2012 Teacher of the Year. By reaching out to the wider student population with the help of technology, her music department is on stronger ground, music is being viewed as an educational necessity, and jobs and careers are no longer on the chopping block. As the music technologist at Greenwich High School for the past 11 years, Barbara successfully provides 300+ students (and a waiting list for more) with innovative composition and tech-performance experiences.

22 Go Create!

The non-traditional hand-held electronic music ensemble is a bold, new option for music educators. Barbara Freedman was first inspired by something she saw on YouTube back in 2008. The first ensemble to perform on their iPhones was the band called iBand (view a video of the iBand in action at: tinyurl.com/3exeyr). Another electronic composition was produced by a DJ called Spurt (tinyurl.com/4jwmm9). One of the exceptional products introduced in those clips was produced on the Korg Kaossilator, and another was done with the mini KP. Technology expert and music educator Jim Frankel came to Greenwich to demonstrate them, and 22

soon after Barbara had her students using these tools in their ensembles, after seeing what was capable via some performances on YouTube. That began a new chapter in Barbara’s teaching. “What we are doing,” Barbara says today, “is not just fun and games. We are teaching people about musical intelligence, so that they can understand music and create a product that is valuable to their community and culture. Whether it is young people or their parents, they are actually creating music. How often in school do the students have a chance to hear a teacher say, ‘Go create?’ The model for education has been to listen to what the teacher tells you or shows you and then students show the teacher the knowledge they have gained by passing a test. I have students demonstrate their knowledge (music and music theory) by creating something they love – music. This is a unique way of assessing student knowledge by having them create something, even though it may seem to be more a difficult way to assess knowledge. It is what the new Common Core and STEM Standards (science, technology, engineering, math) try to achieve and we’ve been doing this in music technology classes for years.

“Adding performance ensembles using hand-held devices is just another way for students to create. In this environment, students need to work together. They need to create together and perform together. They get a taste of what students in traditional ensembles, band, orchestra and chorus get by having to play and perform with others. They get what students get out of playing in chamber groups only in this case, the instruments are electronic.” When she came to Greenwich High School in 2001, there were two Electronic Music classes which she developed into four classes: An Introduction to Electronic Music, Electronic Music I, Electronic Music II, and Electronic Music III, along with an additional honors section. She explains, “These classes are based in music composition, using a sequencing program. In my introduction course, I use GarageBand. And in all three upper level classes, we use Logic for student compositions. They learn about music through composition. “The Electronic III and Honors class students are required to use the hand-held device and participate in ensembles. I break them into performing groups of three or four. They have time to create and collaborate together in class. They work on creating and composing a piece and then they perform it for the class. That’s one part of the class requirements. Some students like to do this more than others and they stick together and do it after school. Some don’t perform with non-traditional music instruments and would rather play their composition or spend more time on audio mixing and editing. I give them a little bit more freedom to explore the things they like or prefer. But all are required to participate in each module during the school year.” When I asked Barbara if improvisation played a role in their composition instruction on these hand-held devices she answered that while her focus is composition, students in her advanced classes add live improvisation into their creations. “I want students to experience composition. And they usually do all their own they work on a computer. But then the ensemble experience gives them a chance to work with people

‘live.’ In a live situation they can’t go back and quantize (have the computer correct their timing). I want them to explore sounds and sound design and I would like them to improvise because these hand-helds are a wonderful way to explore music by improvisation. When you are improvising, it is a totally different thing than recording and going back and editing on a computer. Sometimes I require that they compose only one theme, a main melody. Even if there is an improvisation section, I want to know that the students are going back to the idea originally created, the main melody. It can’t just be a freefor-all jam for two-and-a-half minutes.”

11

In terms of the numbers of students who use the devices, Barbara limits it so not all 300 students will touch the Kaossilator or iPad or participate in the nanoBands. Only 20 or 30 students over the course of the year use these hand-held devices, although more make music with laptops and computers in the typical traditional ensembles. “We hook up a few computers running GarageBand or some other software through a JamHub (www.jamhub.com) and you can have an ensemble with laptop or desktop computers. It’s just not as portable and may not look as cool; but it works!”

Band and orchestra teachers may sometimes fear that a music technology class is going to take students away from their ensembles, but this is just not the case.

Getting Started Barbara started her non-traditional instrument ensembles because as a percussionist, she knows that playing in an ensemble is an invaluable experience for all students. Students who only create music at a computer with GarageBand or Ableton just don’t get the same experience as playing in band, orchestra, chorus, chamber music, or even a rock band. “The experience of interacting with people live is totally unique; creating, manipulating music, and feeling how the music comes together,” she says. “This is why we have sports teams. It is a unique experience participating, producing and creating something in a group. That’s why I wanted my students to have ensemble experiences and that’s why I require it in my advance electronic music classes. Not because it is cool and fun but because it gives them an experience they would not get any other place! And most of my students have never done it before. It is a really great experience.”

Kaossilators were used at first because they were the hand-held devices that were available. But the iPhone, iPod Touch, and now the iPad are readily available. Now that there are devices with multiple functions, this is where the future may be. For example, there is a Kaossilator App for the iPad now. The instruments and the selections available just for the iPad in the app store are incredible. They have some incredible, unbelievable instruments available. “One of the iPad initiative’s teachers can do is music composition using software like GarageBand or Music Studio (www.xewton.com/musicstudio/ overview/), which are terrific software apps, plus music theory like music-

Perspective

Private Lessons 2.0 There’s no doubt that the world has become a smaller place due to the technological advances in communications, including Skype, instant messaging, Face Time, and hardware like iPads, Android devices, USB microphones, and more. One of the benefits of this technology is the ability to have online music lessons without having to be in the same room as the teacher. What once would have been considered nearly impossible is now a simple reality, especially with the integration of all of the technology in most hardware platforms right out of the box. The days of having to purchase separate videocams, microphones, and so on and then having to set up software for them is a thing of the past (although upgrading to external equipment can provide better quality). According to a New York Times article on January 10, 2012, “Many music teachers said in interviews that they were conducting more lessons over broadband connections.” There are, of course, still challenges with the practical aspects of doing an online or Skype lesson – including close up images, positioning of the camera, and sound quality issues. If, for example, a teacher needs to look closely at the fingering positions that an oboe student is using, it may be difficult if the camera is positioned to create a wider angle view of the student. For listening carefully to issues of tone quality, the capability and quality of “These online lessons the microphone and speakers that are being used can be a wonderful are still an important consideration and may not addition to the normal provide all of the sonic information necessary to lessons.” make a judgment (clarinet tone quality is especially difficult to record and assess). Also, how would a teacher show a student how to properly scrape an oboe reed? Skype lessons could be a good adjunct to in-person lessons for a variety of reasons – including if a student doesn’t have transportation for some reason, if there is inclement weather that prevents travel, or if the teacher is traveling and can’t be in town to give the lesson. These online lessons can be a wonderful addition to the normal lessons, if not quite yet a complete replacement. In a similarly related area, there are numerous new web sites online that offer very high quality lessons and master classes that feature some of the top performers in the world. Although this is more of a one-way communication, it does bring some of the greatest musicians in the world right into your practice room. One company called Artistworks.com features top performers like clarinetist Ricardo Morales, flutist Jeffrey Khaner, and many others. Another company, Playwithapro.com features bassoonist Ole Christian Dahl, trumpeter David Bilger, as well as the late composer Elliot Carter. These wonderful resources provide access to these great musicians that were simply unavailable in past years and could provide a wonderful adjunct to almost any interested student…

Chicago Symphony Cellist Premieres Music for ‘Cello and Brain Waves’

Last week, Chicago Symphony Orchestra cellist Katinka Kleijn premiered a oneof-a-kind piece that involved her wearing an EPOC Neuroheadset, a piece of equipment that uses 14 sensors connect with the scalp and pick up brain waves. The piece, Intelligence in the Human-Machine, is a new duet for “cello and brain waves” composed by Daniel R. Dehaan in collaboration with Ryan Ingebritsen, commissioned by art duo Industry of the Ordinary and the Chicago Cultural Center. The headset can take pro- Katinka Kleijn cessed recordings of brain waves and, through the performer’s own thoughts, can manipulate their pitch and speed. Dehaan’s score consists of 20 musical gestures such as long tones or pizzicato movement, for example, indicated by twoor three-bar snippets of conventional notation— together with along with 100 verbal suggestions to Kleijn to “find” concepts like focus or balance or life, within each gesture.

Marking 10 years of advocacy for music education, the NAMM Foundation’s SupportMusic Coalition gathered at a celebration event and live webcast from the NAMM Show in Anaheim last month that featured performances and special guest appearances. One special appearance was made by Latin-Grammy– nominated jazz guitarist, music education advocate, and former N.Y. Yankee Bernie Williams. Take6, the most-awarded a cappella vocal group in history, also made a special guest appearance. Take6 also performed at the launch of SupportMusic from the National Press Club in Washington DC in 2003, and returned to celebrate music education. According to Mary Luehrsen, NAMM director of public affairs and government relations, who has guided the development of the Coalition since its creation, the event marks the beginning of a new decade filled with renewed purpose and passion. “It is a celebration of 10 years of advocacy effort, but most importantly, propels us into the next 10,” Luehrsen said. SupportMusic was formed in 2003 by NAMM in collaboration with the National Association for Music Education (NAfME). A public service initiative that educates and supports grassroots advocacy for music education in local communities around the United States and abroad, SupportMusic unites 340 national, regional and international organizations comprised of parents and community leaders seeking to improve access and opportunity

The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation recently donated $12,000 worth of musical instruments to Boise, Idaho’s Whitney Elementary School. The school received a total of 14 new instruments, including cellos, violins, saxophones, and trumpets. The foundation, started in 1996 by Michael Kamen (the composer for the film Mr. Holland’s Opus), operates under a commitment to donate both new and refurbished instruments to school music programs that lack the resources to keep up with equipment loss due to attrition, depreciation and wear over time, and to accommodate students on waiting lists or who have to share instruments.

Bands Flock to the Rose Bowl; Stanford Offends with Cheesy Tunes

Hundreds of students traveled to Pasadena for the annual Tournament of Roses parade on New Year’s Day this year. Bands included the Bands of America Honor Band along with standout groups from Broken Arrow High School (Oklahoma), Aguiluchos Marching Band (Mexico), Davis High School (Utah) Lassiter High School (Georgia), Morgantown High School (West Virginia), Jackson Memorial High School (New Jersey), and more. The parade also included international bands like the All Izumo Honor Green Band from Japan, the Aguiuchos Marching Band from Mexico, and Banda El Salvador from El Salvador. Meanwhile, during the Rose Bowl game itself, Stanford’s marching band raised controversy with its “Ode to Cheese” (aka “Homage to Fromage”) halftime show, aimed squarely at opponents’ Wisconsin’s stereotypical culinary standard. The band formed a map of Wisconsin and declared Madison home of “the best Cheez Whiz in the world.” Stanford went on to win the game, 20-14.

Performance: Strings

Teaching Strings:

Enabling String Methods for all Music Educators

Y

By Victor Vallo Jr.

ears ago when I interviewed for my first public school music teaching job to be a high school and middle school band director, one of the first questions I was asked was, “Can you teach a section of Beginning/Intermediate Strings?” I already had a working knowledge of strings from my Strings Methods course at the university where I received my bachelor’s degree in Music Education. Consequently, my answer was a confident, “Yes.” If I had said, “No,” I most probably would not have been offered the job. But then again, how much does one String Methods course, with or without private lessons, prepare someone for teaching strings at the elementary, middle school, and/or high school levels? One of the things I’ve noticed over the years as both a secondary school and college-level music teacher is that teaching strings is similar to teaching any other music course. It requires first a passion for music, a passion to teach, and subject matter knowledge – in this case, a functional knowledge of the violin, viola, cello, and bass. The Strings Methods course did provide some good and usable basic information about all the orchestral string instruments. I also decided later on to learn more about these instruments on my own through private viola and cello lessons, while also keeping my major instrument, trumpet, going. From these experiences I have learned many lessons, suggestions, and tips on teaching strings and program building which hopefully will help school band directors and elementary music teachers feel a little more comfortable teaching strings to elementary, middle, and high school students.

The Basics First of all, music teachers who are primarily band directors, choral directors, and elementary music teachers can teach strings. What this means is that as a music teacher, you must remember that you are there to teach “music,” and the use of string instruments is 10

School Band and Orchestra • February 2013

the means to do so. With this frame of mind, think of string instruments as the tools of your trade. What this also means is that one should refresh oneself, if needed, on the basics of string instrument playing and pedagogy which we all learned in college. Yes, you took the String Methods course some time ago as a Music Education major in college. That being said, you should already know what a good string sound is and how to produce it, as well as what the correct holding positions for the bow and the instrument are. Tuning the instrument in perfect 5ths (violin, viola, cello) and perfect 4ths (bass) is also something we learned, especially since we know what P5s and P4s should sound like. When tuning, moving the pegs is similar in concept to moving the mouthpieces on woodwind instruments and tuning slides on brass instruments. Think of the acronym SOFI: Sharp Out, Flat In. If the peg is sticking, always loosen the peg (out) first before tightening (in) to avoid popping a string. This little trick can save some time and money in replacing broken strings. Tune sharp at first so that as you tighten the lower strings, the upper tunings will descend in pitch making it easier now to simply using the fine tuners on the tailpiece


to make those final and safe tuning adjustments. Once the basics of good tuning, holding position, and instrument care are taught and learned by your students, this would be about the time when two sequential components of teaching strings should be taught separately and then combined: right-hand skills (bowing) followed by left-hand skills (finger placement on the strings).

Right-Hand Skills (Bowing) Just like each family of brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments has the same basic concept of sound production within each family, so it is with strings. The bow, like the mouthpiece and the mallet, is used to vibrate the string and start the sound. Again, make sure that your students have a good concept of – and can demonstrate – correct bow hold and bow movement. It would be a good idea to first teach your students how to first hold the bow at the balance point (right above the winding and bow grip) so that their fingers and thumb can be relaxed while holding the bow. When they become comfortable with this, move their bow hold to the frog part of the bow. Do this by demonstrating to the students the correct way to hold the bow in the right hand, keeping the fingers on the bow grip and frog at all times and, of course, a bent thumb at the joint. Don’t forget to show your students how to properly tighten and loosen the bow hairs before and after all practices and rehearsals. Once the bow hold is demonstrably correct and comfortable in the hands of the students, there are various ways to make sure that the sound has good tone quality. Some basics of playing using the bow are: 1) Use even weight of the full bow on each string. 2) Use index finger to transfer weight on bow as it moves toward tip. 3) Use index finger to diminish weight on the bow as it moves toward the frog. 4) Use full and even bow strokes, keeping a steady bow speed. 5) Keep the bow perpendicular to the string at all times. 6) Tilt hair of bow toward the bridge for evenness of sound. 7) Breathe in before starting phrases that begin with down-bow strokes.

While there are more details about right-hand skills (bowing), these fundamental bowing concepts should be the thread that helps form the basis for advanced string bowing.

Left-Hand Skills Once students are comfortable with holding and using the bow, it would be good to start the second part of this learning sequence, which is teaching the left-hand skills of finger placement on the strings. In this way, the concept and sequence of learning one thing at a time can be used to reinforce each skill before they are combined together. In general, strive for teaching familiarity with the strings by first learning to pluck or pizzicato each open string. Most methods books usually start with this approach, which also serves in helping students reinforce the names of the strings as they cross over to other strings. Eventually scales and such tunes as “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” can and should be

ways to grow and develop that program. One sure way is to invite guest artists who may be college and/or professional level string players to your school. These artists may be members of a local college, civic, or professional symphony orchestra and/ or string quartet. What is important is for your string students to actually hear in person other string players who can dem-

introduced to incorporate both open strings and very doable first-position finger positions, initially marking this first position with a piece of sticky tape or a dot on the fingerboard. The goal for the teacher is to build both skill and confidence in the students, who, after development of these basics, should be ready, willing, and able to move on to developing more technical skills. It should be added that at some point, you as the band, choral, or elementary music teacher should encourage your string students to study privately with a music teacher whose primary instrument is violin, viola, cello, or bass. In this way, your students can continue their development with string specialists who can take them to the next level.

Building A String Program How does one build a string program? Assuming that a string program already exists in your school thanks to you and/ or your predecessors, there are various

onstrate professional quality sound while interacting with your students in a positive and encouraging way. The benefits of hearing first-hand the beautiful tone quality and music-making that experienced string players can create on their instruments can last a lifetime. Another perk would be for your string students to have a private lesson or group master class with these professionals. Again, this hands-on approach is a recipe for success and one that your students will enjoy, appreciate, and remember. If you are teaching strings at the elementary or middle school levels, you may also want to consider inviting string players from a local high school string program to come and play for your elementary or middle school students, both for demonstration and hands-on exploratory sessions on the various string instruments. Invite the high school orchestra or string quartet to also come and give private or public concerts for your students. I sure was sold when a high

school student came to my elementary many years ago school and gave a private concert to my general music class. It had such a positive effect that I knew that I wanted to go into music!

Dos and Don’ts As music educators, we all know from experience that there are dos and don’ts in teaching music, be it band, chorus, general music, or, in this case, orchestra students. Below are just a few suggestions:

DO • Be patient! Effective string teaching takes time. It took all of us many years to learn what we know and do. Take the time to qualitatively share your knowledge with your students. • Continually reinforce the fundamentals of good string playing in your teaching to your students at all grade levels. • Present quality performances to and with your students, ensuring sufficient preparation and rehearsal time. • Motivate your students by your example to practice daily, remembering the learning strategy that frequent shorter practice sessions are better than infrequent longer practice sessions. • Start teaching your students early on the what, how, and why of learning to tune their own instruments. • Always keep extra string supplies handy (strings, rosin, music, et cetera) to avoid loss of instructional time by/ with your students. • Demonstrate as much as possible the skills and techniques you wish them to learn and follow up with them demonstrating it back. • Play quality recordings of solo and ensemble string music so that your students can hear what excellent string playing is.

Don’t • Don’t give your students any more than two new techniques to learn at a time. Better to focus on quality and not quantity. • Don’t get discouraged if students progress slower than you expect. Progress takes time and each student progresses at his or her own rate. Recognize their rate and learning styles. 12

• Don’t forget that strings can be learned by any and all age groups. Suzuki proved this in 1958 with his famous innovative method.

Additional Tips & Suggestions Teaching strings, like any other music subject, is an acquired skill for band directors, choral directors, elementary music teachers and, I dare say, orchestra directors. It is one thing to be able to sing or play a musical instrument, but it’s quite another thing to be able to teach it. Among my final tips will be a number of suggestions – psychological ones, too – that hopefully will offer ways to think about the pedagogical skill and art of teaching strings: • Be as technically and psychologically prepared as possible to teach strings. Maybe take private lessons on any of the four stringed instruments so that you will better able and more confident to teach and conduct strings in class and ensembles. • Know your students and understand their individual learning styles. From this, you will be better able to adjust and tailor your string teaching to each student’s learning style/capability. • Get to know the professional string players and teachers in the area. Invite them to visit with you and your students and offer their knowledge and experience in how to teach these instruments. • Do your best in having your students play on quality instruments. The better the quality of instrument, the less difficulty your students will have in producing a good sound and technique. • Have the better students in your string class help those who need some extra help. You’ll build leadership and trust among your students. Sometimes student peers can say what you want to say in a more understandable manner to each other. • Try to have a goal (for example, a concert) in mind when teaching strings. Not only do you want to have your students learn a new set of skills, but you want to offer them a chance to show off their new skills. A miniconcert at a PTA meeting is a perfect venue for proud parents to hear the progress their children have made.

Recommended String Methods Books In the course of teaching strings, these string methods books represent the more popular and widely-used books for group string instruction: • Essential Elements for Strings (Hal Leonard) • All For Strings (Neil A. Kjos Music) • Strictly Strings (Highland/Etling-Alfred) • Spotlight on Strings (Neil A. Kjos Music) • Etling String Class Method (Highland-Etling) • Action With Strings (Southern Music) • Learn to Play a Stringed Instrument (Alfred Music) • Mu¨ller-Rusch String Method (Neil A. Kjos) • Learning Unlimited String Method (Hal Leonard) • Young Strings in Action (Boosey & Hawkes)

• Keep in mind that string teaching is an art as well as a pedagogical skill that can be nurtured through personal practice both in playing and teaching these instruments. • Recommended website for further pedagogical information: www.stringtechniques.com. Finally, always remember to enthusiastically enjoy making music, both as a teacher and a performer. Even if a violin, viola, cello, or bass is not your primary instrument, your students will not only sense your enthusiasm for teaching strings, but will be anxious to learn from you. Isn’t that what music teaching music is all about? Dr. Victor Vallo Jr. is a professor of Music and the chair of the Department of Music at Georgia College & State University (GCSU). Dr. Vallo has been conductor and guest conductor for a number of orchestras and bands around the country, including the Immaculata Wind Symphony, Anderson Symphony Orchestra (SC), Arkansas Festival Orchestra, Alabama All-State Orchestra, and South Carolina All-State Orchestra. Currently, Dr. Vallo is the music director/conductor of the Oconee Regional Symphony Orchestra.

Guest Editorial: Personality Types

Do You Have the Personality for Teaching Music?

By Dr. David Snyder

I

t is not uncommon to hear experienced directors talk about other music teachers or student teachers and say things like, “She’s a natural” or “He has a wonderful teacher personality.” These statements, and others like it, usually refer to particular personality characteristics that some people possess in

regard to how they work with young people, their ability to be in front of others, or how well they can get others (particularly children) to follow them. But what underlying personality traits draw music students to become music teachers? Is there a way to define and identify these personality traits, so we can encour-

age more students with these traits to join the profession? Are there other personality types that avoid the music education field or tend to drop out of music education programs? These are some of the questions that guided a recent study involving future music teachers. Six different classes of music education majors enrolled in a large Midwestern university were asked to take an online personality survey and then were tracked through graduation. Personality types, as determined by the Myers-Briggs Personality Type test, were then examined for how they related to choice of major and attrition within the music education degree program. The hope was to combine these findings with other research done on personality and get a snap shot of what personality types are drawn to teaching band and orchestra and further what types persist through graduation.

What is the Myers-Briggs Test? Before sharing the results, it may be helpful to understand a little about the test used to determine personality

type in this and other studies. The Myers-Briggs Personality Type test based on psychologist Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types is a common tool used to determine personality type. Subjects completing this test are assigned a four-letter descriptor representing four different dichotomies: Introversion/Extroversion, Sensing/iNtuition, Thinking/Feeling and Judging/Perceiving. The resulting fourletter descriptor (16 different combinations are possible) describes the subjects preferred mode of operation when interacting with other people. For example, with “E” types (for extroverted) the energy flow is outward, and the preferred focus is on other people and things, whereas with “I” types (for introverted) the energy flow is inward, and the preferred focus is on one’s own thoughts and ideas. Here are four questions taken from the Myers-Briggs Foundation website that you can ask yourself to help deter-



mine which of the descriptors within the four distinctive dichotomies used in the Myers-Briggs Type test apply to you. • Do you prefer to focus on the outer world (Extroversion) or on your own inner world (Introversion)? • Do you prefer to focus on the basic information you take in (Sensing) or do you prefer to interpret and add meaning (iNtuition)? • When making decisions, do you prefer to first look at logic and consistency (Thinking) or first look at the people and special circumstances (Feeling)? • In dealing with the outside world, do you prefer to get things decided (Judging) or do you prefer to stay open to new information and options (Perceiving)? It is important to note here that the judging type has nothing to do with being “judgmental” nor does the perceiving type refer to being “perceptive” as most understand it. They are simply personality descriptors relating to preferences on how decisions are to be made. If you are wondering where you fall within the 16 types presented in the Myers-Briggs matrix, there is a free on-line survey available that can help identify your personality type preferences at: www.humanmetrics.com/ cgi-win/jtypes2.asp. The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete. After completing the survey, you can click on a detailed description of your fourletter type and also see career preferences for your type.

Which personality types are most common? Table 1 is a summary of all the personality types and their frequency identified during this six-year longitudinal study. It also contains the percentage that each type represented in the sample and the percentage that dropped from the music education program. The most common personality type identified in this sample of music education majors was ENFJ (Extravert-iNtuitive-Feeling-Judging) at just over 30 percent. This percentage was also consistent from year to year. What is in16

teresting about this 30 percent figure is that only between two and four percent of the U.S. population on the whole is made up of ENFJs. Conversely, the ISFJ (Introvert-Sensing-Feeling-Judging) and ISTJ (Introvert-Sensing-ThinkingJudging) type, which are the two most common types within the U.S. population (comprising roughly 14 percent and 12 percent respectively), are hardly present in this sample of music education students. Why then this extraordinarily high concentration of ENFJs in the music education program? According to the Myers-Briggs’ Foundation website, an ENFJ is a natural born leader who is very in-tune to the needs of others. They are warm, empathetic, responsive, and responsible. They are able to take decisive action when necessary but are highly attuned to the emotions, needs, and motivations of others. They want to help others fulfill their potential. It is easy to see how these traits would match well with someone intending to direct school-aged students in band or orchestra. Based on the above description, one might also expect research to identify a preference for the teaching

profession by ENFJs and this study and several others certainly do. Teaching is consistently listed as an optimal career choice for ENFJs. There are several other studies that, in addition to ENFJ, found ENFP (Extravert-iNtuitive-Feeling-Perceiving) types to be very common in music education populations and in public school performing ensembles. According to the Myers-Briggs foundation, ENFPs are warmly enthusiastic and imaginative and see life as full of possibilities; they are also spontaneous and flexible, often relying on their ability to improvise and their verbal fluency. Consequently, they do not like performing routine tasks or being under the control of other people. The perceiving personality type also prefers to keep all possibilities open when coming to a decision, sometimes waiting until the last possible minute to decide. The Perceiving type in general likes to understand and adapt to the world rather than organize it. The Judging type, on the other hand, prefers a planned or orderly way of life, and likes to have things settled and organized. Both a “J” and a “P” can be organized,

but “J”s more often demonstrate this trait outwardly. This factor alone might lead a “J” type to choose a career in the classroom where structure and organization are essential for success. And in fact, of the 285 music education majors in this study, an overwhelming majority (87 percent) was classified as Js. When looking at the Introversion (I)/Extroversion (E) dichotomy, a similar disparity in enrollment rates is revealed. The longitudinal study done for this article found almost twice as many “E”s enrolled as “I”s (183 to 97). The reader may again find this fact rather predictable. Most experienced educators and even the casual observer would tend to describe most teachers of school-aged children as “outgoing” but let us revisit the definition of “extrovert” and “introvert” as given by the Myers-Briggs Foundation. Extraversion and Introversion as terms used by C. G. Jung explain different attitudes people use to direct their energy. These words have a meaning in psychology that is different from the way they are used in everyday language. Everyone spends some time extroverting and some time introverting. Don’t confuse Introversion with shyness or reclusiveness. They are not related. Extroverts like getting their energy from active involvement in events and having a lot of different activities. They are excited when they are around people. Extroverts like moving into action and making things happen. Extroverts often want to talk out loud with others about a problem they are dealing with. Introverts, on the other hand, receive their energy from dealing with the ideas, pictures, memories, and reactions that are inside their own head. They prefer doing things alone or with someone they feel comfortable with. Introverts always take time to reflect so that they have a clear idea of what they will do when they decide to act. When considering these descriptions of extroversion and introversion, the reader can easily see how either set of qualities might be beneficial to a future teacher.

Which personality types drop out? The overall attrition rate for all students enrolled in the music edu-


cation degree program for the four classes that graduated was just under 30 percent. Every personality trait was represented in this figure but not in equal proportions. Introversion positively correlated with higher rates of attrition from the music education degree. Over 55 percent of the introverts (24 of the 43 enrolled) dropped out or switched degrees while only 31 percent of the extroverts (33 out of 106) dropped or switched over the same time period. Why did fewer introverts make it through the music education program and go on to be teachers? It is not clear, but a possible reason for this could be that introverts prefer working by themselves and sometimes forget to check their ideas with the outside world. This could potentially hinder an introvert’s desire to work collaboratively. Working collaboratively is a key component in most teacher training programs today and a desirable trait for potential school employers. Students identified with the perceiving trait also had higher attrition rates than those with the judging trait. The findings from this research showed that “P”s dropped out of or switched from the music education major at a 39 percent rate while “J”s averaged 27 percent. One can only speculate at this point on the various factors that may have influenced these students to drop out or switch from the music education program, but the traits associated with the perceiver type personality may be relevant here. When combining the perceiving (P) and the introvert (I) type qualities, for example an INFP or an ISTP, the attrition rate was also high. Fifty percent of the participants in this study who were both “I” and “P” dropped out or switched majors from music education. Introverts tend to be reflective, reserved and private. Introverts recharge their batteries by being alone with their thoughts. Perceivers prefer an environment that is unstructured, and like to keep their options open when making decisions. Consequently, the introvert/ perceiver may be drained by being in front of a large classroom of children all day and dislike the imposed structure of their school teaching situation. There are obviously other variables be-

sides personality type that enter into a decision to switch major. But a degree program that puts majors in front of classroom students for practice teaching sessions and requires majors to conform to the cooperating teacher’s classroom structure may adversely affect the introvert/perceiver’s desire to continue in the program.

Which personalities are drawn to teaching? Obviously, there is a wide range of personalities represented within music teaching and within the teaching profession as a whole. There are many successful teachers representing each of the 16 Myers-Briggs personality types, but some types do seem to be attracted to teaching more than others. This and other research shows that certain personality types are drawn to particular majors. The ENFJ (Extrovert-iNtuitiveFeeling-Judging), ESFJ (ExtrovertSensing-Feeling-Judging) and INFJ (Introvert-iNtuitive-Feeling-Judging) types were the three most common personalities identified in this sample comprising 62 percent of the music education majors studied. Each of these personality types has “teaching” listed as one possible career preferences according to Paul Tieger’s book, Do What You Are: Discover the Perfect Career for You Through the Secrets of Personality Type. This classic text on personality and career choice has been used for many years by career counselors. The beneficial traits for teaching of the ENFJ type such as leadership, empathy to others, decisiveness, and so on, were described earlier in this article, but how do the ESFJ and the INFJ types compare? The ESFJ is warm-hearted, popular, and conscientious. They tend to put the needs of others over their own needs. An ESFJ feels a strong sense of responsibility and duty and values traditions and security. They are interested in serving others, but need positive reinforcement to feel good about themselves. The INFJ type is extremely intuitive about people. They are natural nurturers; patient, devoted and protective. They make loving parents and usually have high expectations of their children, and push them to be the best that they can be. In the School Band and Orchestra • February 2013

workplace, the INFJ usually shows up in areas where they can be creative and somewhat independent. They have a natural affinity for the arts. INFJs can also be found in service-oriented professions. A key trait shared by all three of these types (ENFJ, ESFJ, and INFJ) is a desire to serve others or a natural inclination for nurturing. This serving/nurturing component is obviously a desirable trait for an educator. It is also important to note that all three types have the “judging” trait which means they desire closure in the decision making process. It simply may be that coming to a decision quickly is part and parcel with the teaching profession in general and band and orchestra directing in particular. Music students identified as ENFJ, INFJ, or ESFJ who show interest in teaching probably should be encouraged to pursue this. High school directors with students who fall into these categories may even want to give these students opportunities to try short teaching episodes with peers or younger musicians within

the program to see if teaching is a good fit for them. Regardless of what personality type a potential music director may be, knowing their preferences for interacting with the outside world as determined by a personality assessment can provide keen insight into who they are as a potential teacher. This can be an effective tool for both future music teachers and educators working with students who are in the process of deciding on what major to pick or what career to go into after college. Band and orchestra directors often have a strong influence on life decisions made by their band and orchestra members including what major to select in college. The study of personality traits through the Myers-Briggs Personality Type test can provide important information and insight for a potential music education major. Hopefully, the information shared in this article can aid in helping all of us understand our preferences for interacting with each other and the world around us.

Technology: Integrating Technology

Using Technology for Improvisation and Composition in Traditional Ensembles by John Kuzmich, Jr.

E

pic economic dilemmas require epic solutions. Even while the struggling economy is negatively affecting education, positive and creative options are emerging in music educa-

tion. We don’t need to stand by while furloughs and cuts threaten our profession or watch fine performance ensembles be squeezed between single-section specialty classes. For years, School Band & Or-

chestra has thrown a spotlight on music educators who are thriving in spite of the downturns around us. And some of our finest innovators are using technology to come up with epic solutions. One such innovator is Barbara Freeman, of Greenwich, Connecticut, TI:ME’s 2012 Teacher of the Year. By reaching out to the wider student population with the help of technology, her music department is on stronger ground, music is being viewed as an educational necessity, and jobs and careers are no longer on the chopping block. As the music technologist at Greenwich High School for the past 11 years, Barbara successfully provides 300+ students (and a waiting list for more) with innovative composition and tech-performance experiences.

Go Create! The non-traditional hand-held electronic music ensemble is a bold, new option for music educators. Barbara Freedman was first inspired by something she saw on YouTube back in 2008. The first ensemble to perform on their iPhones was the band called iBand (view a video of the iBand in action at: tinyurl.com/3exeyr). Another electronic composition was produced by a DJ called Spurt (tinyurl.com/4jwmm9). One of the exceptional products introduced in those clips was produced on the Korg Kaossilator, and another was done with the mini KP. Technology expert and music educator Jim Frankel came to Greenwich to demonstrate them, and 22

soon after Barbara had her students using these tools in their ensembles, after seeing what was capable via some performances on YouTube. That began a new chapter in Barbara’s teaching. “What we are doing,” Barbara says today, “is not just fun and games. We are teaching people about musical intelligence, so that they can understand music and create a product that is valuable to their community and culture. Whether it is young people or their parents, they are actually creating music. How often in school do the students have a chance to hear a teacher say, ‘Go create?’ The model for education has been to listen to what the teacher tells you or shows you and then students show the teacher the knowledge they have gained by passing a test. I have students demonstrate their knowledge (music and music theory) by creating something they love – music. This is a unique way of assessing student knowledge by having them create something, even though it may seem to be more a difficult way to assess knowledge. It is what the new Common Core and STEM Standards (science, technology, engineering, math) try to achieve and we’ve been doing this in music technology classes for years.


“Adding performance ensembles using hand-held devices is just another way for students to create. In this environment, students need to work together. They need to create together and perform together. They get a taste of what students in traditional ensembles, band, orchestra and chorus get by having to play and perform with others. They get what students get out of playing in chamber groups only in this case, the instruments are electronic.” When she came to Greenwich High School in 2001, there were two Electronic Music classes which she developed into four classes: An Introduction to Electronic Music, Electronic Music I, Electronic Music II, and Electronic Music III, along with an additional honors section. She explains, “These classes are based in music composition, using a sequencing program. In my introduction course, I use GarageBand. And in all three upper level classes, we use Logic for student compositions. They learn about music through composition. “The Electronic III and Honors class students are required to use the hand-held device and participate in ensembles. I break them into performing groups of three or four. They have time to create and collaborate together in class. They work on creating and composing a piece and then they perform it for the class. That’s one part of the class requirements. Some students like to do this more than others and they stick together and do it after school. Some don’t perform with non-traditional music instruments and would rather play their composition or spend more time on audio mixing and editing. I give them a little bit more freedom to explore the things they like or prefer. But all are required to participate in each module during the school year.” When I asked Barbara if improvisation played a role in their composition instruction on these hand-held devices she answered that while her focus is composition, students in her advanced classes add live improvisation into their creations. “I want students to experience composition. And they usually do all their own they work on a computer. But then the ensemble experience gives them a chance to work with people

‘live.’ In a live situation they can’t go back and quantize (have the computer correct their timing). I want them to explore sounds and sound design and I would like them to improvise because these hand-helds are a wonderful way to explore music by improvisation. When you are improvising, it is a totally different thing than recording and going back and editing on a computer. Sometimes I require that they compose only one theme, a main melody. Even if there is an improvisation section, I want to know that the students are going back to the idea originally created, the main melody. It can’t just be a freefor-all jam for two-and-a-half minutes.”

In terms of the numbers of students who use the devices, Barbara limits it so not all 300 students will touch the Kaossilator or iPad or participate in the nanoBands. Only 20 or 30 students over the course of the year use these hand-held devices, although more make music with laptops and computers in the typical traditional ensembles. “We hook up a few computers running GarageBand or some other software through a JamHub (www.jamhub.com) and you can have an ensemble with laptop or desktop computers. It’s just not as portable and may not look as cool; but it works!”

Band and orchestra teachers may sometimes fear that a music technology class is going to take students away from their ensembles, but this is just not the case.

Getting Started Barbara started her non-traditional instrument ensembles because as a percussionist, she knows that playing in an ensemble is an invaluable experience for all students. Students who only create music at a computer with GarageBand or Ableton just don’t get the same experience as playing in band, orchestra, chorus, chamber music, or even a rock band. “The experience of interacting with people live is totally unique; creating, manipulating music, and feeling how the music comes together,” she says. “This is why we have sports teams. It is a unique experience participating, producing and creating something in a group. That’s why I wanted my students to have ensemble experiences and that’s why I require it in my advance electronic music classes. Not because it is cool and fun but because it gives them an experience they would not get any other place! And most of my students have never done it before. It is a really great experience.”

Kaossilators were used at first because they were the hand-held devices that were available. But the iPhone, iPod Touch, and now the iPad are readily available. Now that there are devices with multiple functions, this is where the future may be. For example, there is a Kaossilator App for the iPad now. The instruments and the selections available just for the iPad in the app store are incredible. They have some incredible, unbelievable instruments available. “One of the iPad initiative’s teachers can do is music composition using software like GarageBand or Music Studio (www.xewton.com/musicstudio/ overview/), which are terrific software apps, plus music theory like music-

theory.net,” says Barbara. “Karajan (www.karajan-eartrainer.com/en/) is also a wonderful application for music theory. I think the iPad can be a great access device for those that can’t afford a computer or laptop lab. It can be used as a composition tool, a music theory trainer, and as an ensemble instrument where students who would never play in an ensemble will participate.” Band and orchestra teachers may sometimes fear that a music technology class is going to take students away from their ensembles, but this is just not the case. Barbara says that in the 11 years she has been at Greenwich High School, there have been few if any students who have stopped playing in a performing ensemble just to be in her electronic music class. As it turns out, her music tech classes have been a great recruiting class source for both instrumental and vocal ensembles. Barbara notes, “I send a lot of students to college for Music Composition, Audio Engineering and Music Business. I tell my students if you really want to go into this in college, you will most likely have to take an audition and be able to demonstrate a certain level of musical knowledge. Most four-year colleges with majors in music technology, composition or business, require 24

some background in music and the music school requires the audition. Some of my students freak out because they don’t play traditional instruments, so I encourage them to join the chorus as soon as possible and take as many music theory classes as they can. Voice lessons are great if they can afford it. This will help them prepare for the audition. I have so many guys in my classes. How many colleges would love to have more basses and tenors in their choruses?”

Creative Budgeting Surprisingly, the prices of these non-traditional electronic instruments are dropping steadily. Even the new iPad Minis have been released with lower price-points, making them more affordable for school music programs. Many of these hand-held instruments do not require an amplifier because they have already have output built in. Barbara agrees, saying, “I don’t need amplifiers but there is one device that I highly recommend – the JamHub, which allows me to mix a lot of instruments together. Students can plug their instruments into the JamHub and everybody can hear each other. They can play ‘live’ when they plug into a sound system or computer or some other output device and students can control their mix and submix. For example, if someone is playing a Kaossilator and someone else is on the Alesis drum machine SR16 or SR18, I can turn the drummer down in my headphone mix. Each student has his or her own headphone mix plugged into a single output device. This works out great since all my students can be working in the same room on their projects and each group won’t interfere with another one since they only hear their own group practicing.“ Music technology equipment often qualifies for budget monies outside of the regular music budget. Once a lab is up and running, it is very easy to maintain since large purchases for hardware, software, and server upgrades are sonly made every few years. More importantly, funding often comes through sources outside of the music department. For example, there are Perkins loans and all kinds of things that the district receives for technology from the local,

School Band and Orchestra • February 2013

state, and federal government. “I get my annual funding from the same place as all the other music teachers in my district,” confirms Barbara. “But when I need to make large purchases like a set of computers, the funding came from the school and district’s technology budgets, as well as the music department. If you can demonstrate the need, you can find funding for technology.” For those looking to purchase tech equipment for school use, remember to always ask for an education discount.

Closing Comments As music educators, we recognize the value of the ensemble experience. Whether traditional or non-traditional, a music ensemble can provide a firstclass experience in not only in creating music but also synthesizing all of the elements of rhythm, harmony, melody, timbre, and form. And when technology skills are fused into music ensemble experience, you have a curriculum model the entire student population can gravitate to. It can also enhance your employment security. Barbara even combines mixing traditional instruments in her electronic ensembles. As Barbara says, “This is how you reach that 80 percent of the school population that doesn’t participate in our traditional music programs or band, orchestra or chorus. Give them a class where they can learn about music by creating music even if they had little or no experience with music before. This is how you have all those other students in the school clamor to get into a music class. You want to save your job? Job security is when the administration and Board of Ed sees huge numbers of kids requesting your elective class.” Dr. John Kuzmich Jr. is a veteran music educator, jazz educator and music technologist with more than 41 years of public school teaching experience.

Schools That Will Change the Way You Think About College.” Individualized learning, the development of multiple interests and community engagement are central to the Lawrence experience. All Lawrence Conservatory students pursue at least one-third of their course work outside of music, and many choose to complete both the Bachelor of Arts degree and the Bachelor of Music degree in a special five-year program. Unlike many other music schools, Lawrence Conservatory students do not compete with graduate students for roles in the opera, chairs in the orchestra, or faculty attention. Lawrence draws its 1,445 students from 44 states and 35 countries. For more information visit www.lawrence.edu or follow us on Facebook.

With a student-faculty ratio of only 2:1, Mannes students receive close personal mentorship and guidance from their teachers. As part of The New School -- a university based in Manhattan with a total student population of 10,500 undergraduates and graduate students -- Mannes offers its students a wide variety of educational options. Undergraduate performance concentrations include violin, viola, cello, double bass, harp, flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bassoon, horn, trumpet, trombone, tuba, percussion, voice, piano, harpsichord, and guitar. Non-performance concentrations are: orchestral conducting, and composition. The Mannes faculty includes internationally-known artists, scholars, and educators with diverse backgrounds, including concert artists, chamber musicians, successful freelancers, established composers, and members of organizations such as the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, New York City Opera, Philadelphia Orchestra, and Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. A hallmark of the Mannes educational approach is its signature Techniques of Music Program, which includes rigorous instruction in ear-training, sight-singing, dictation, keyboard harmony, score reading, theory, and musical analysis. Students in bachelor’s degree programs are also required to take classes in areas pertinent to classical music, such as music history, English composition, art history, literature, foreign languages, and humanities. Mannes’ urban campus, in the residential Upper West Side of Manhattan, enables students to partake in the New York scene. The school is walking distance from Central Park, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the American Museum of Natural History, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Students can attend performances -- often for free or at a discount -- at legendary New York venues such as Avery Fisher Hall, the

Metropolitan Opera, the 92nd Street Y, and Merkin Concert Hall.

Colleges & Universities the University of the Arts’ School of Music. You’ll have private lessons with top musicians and composers, and perform in any of our 50 ensembles—nationally recognized big bands, an innovative bucket-drumming ensemble, a 110-voice chorus, a Brazilian samba band, a rock and jazz fusion ensemble, and small jazz groups. Our programs are firmly rooted in jazz, but we embrace all music — from Count Basie to Chick Corea, be-bop to J.S Bach, rock to electronic music. Performing, composing, teaching, music business — explore it all in the center of a dynamic arts district, and take advantage of one of four different minor programs and study-abroad opportunities. UArts students improvise and collaborate with each other and with faculty, building on a foundation that includes theory, musicianship, history, music and recording technology, music business, the liberal arts, and entrepreneurial activities. You’ll discover, challenge and change as you develop as a creative individual prepared to take the next step in your exciting career.

There is a definite ‘connection’ to his music that lifts the performer to a new level of expression.” And... these Musical journeys are enhanced by effective Teaching Tools with Stephen’s direct support. “Melillo is to wind music what Beethoven was to the symphony or-

chestra... Superlative musical craftsmanship and inspiring to hear.” Marvin Sosna, Music Critic. From Karl Geroldinger, Conductor of Chapter 21: WON WAY! “Since we met Stephen Melillo 8 years ago my orchestra and me are inspired by his emotional music touching the hearts. We played some of his great pieces in our concerts and felt the power of his music occupying us and our audience. You cannot play Steve’s music without being involved with heart and soul - Music from Stephen Melillo is like an earthquake and a prayer in equal time.”

Top 5 Reasons to Choose a Krispy Kreme FUNdraiser: • Profitable – 50% – 60%+ profit margins on average • Affordable – reasonable price points customers can afford • Fast – as little as one day to two weeks, start-to-finish • Simple – NO warehousing… plus Krispy Kreme provides sales materials at no charge • Successful – over $32 Million raised last year (customers have loved it since 1955!) Bonus Reason: your group can use this program multiple times during the year to raise even more money…unlike many fundraising products, Krispy Kreme’s don’t “stay around,” so your customers are ready to buy again more quickly! Plus – repetition further simplifies the administration and implementation for you. It just makes sense, doesn’t it… especially if you’ve ever enjoyed the sweet, delicious joy of a Krispy Kreme doughnut! Learn more about how FUNdraising can help your group by talking to your closest retail Krispy Kreme shop or visiting www.krispykreme.com/fundraising (use our online Store Locater to identify your shop – keep in mind that FUNdraising can be very successful whether your shop is nearby or even several miles away).

Now owned for over two years by Powell Flutes--the Boston-based “Stradavarius flutes” and long recognized as “obsessed with quality”--E.K. Blessing is experiencing a rebirth all its own. In addition to offering sturdy, American made entry and intermediate level trumpets, trombones, and marching brass, Blessing offers an exceptional selection of professional trumpets and trombones. For over a century musicians like Clifford Brown and Red Rodney chose Blessing. Today artists like Lew Soloff, Rob Parton and Dominick Farinacci carry on that great tradition. Blessing moved to a state-ofthe-art manufacturing facility within Elkhart in 2010. Today, the new Blessing is not only adding terrific new instruments, they’re also going to great lengths to improve upon current designs. For example, the BM-301 marching baritone is now 25% lighter to reduce player fatigue, but is still brawny and reliable. To improve the customer experience Blessing will soon roll out its new web-based parts catalogue. When you choose a Blessing horn, you’re not only choosing a great instrument at an affordable price. You’re choosing a commitment to high quality American manufacturing, and the peace of mind that provides.

Through ongoing improvements in material selection, manufacturing processes, uncompromising quality control and its proprietary computer testing system, the company has provided its customers with the “perfect pair” of drumsticks and mallets. All Vic Firth sticks are inspected and re-inspected at each operation to ensure the highest quality product. From the sawmill, only the finest logs are cut into squares and dried to an exact moisture content in kilns under closely monitored conditions, which prevents stress, cracks and warping. The squares are doweled and then “ground” into drumsticks on center-less grinders – an approach that maintains the greatest consistency at the highest levels of dimensional tolerance. After finishing and labeling, the sticks are rolled again for straightness, hand-sorted for color consistency and then sent through a proprietary computer pairing system. The exclusive process measures the weight, pitch and density of each stick and compares the variables to the characteristics of hundreds of other sticks. Pairs are then matched to the closest possible tolerances, resulting in two drumsticks that are perfectly matched for optimum balance, sound and feel. No other stick manufacturer in the world offers this valueadded service.

Users can customize their own sight reading material and generate unlimited amounts of new music for any supported instrument. Instead of spending valuable time searching for or composing sight reading, with a few simple mouse clicks you can generate quality, never before seen music. The program actually composes music directly in the web browser in mere seconds. There are many rules governing the musical output so that it makes sense rhythmically, melodically and harmonically. In other words, it is not just a bunch of random notes and rhythms on a page, it sounds like real music. For teachers, this tool can be used with a small or large group of students via a SMART Board or digital video projector. For students, this service is invaluable in helping to prepare for auditions. With six levels of difficulty, there is something to challenge everyone, from the first year player to the most seasoned musician.

Everything for the Educator and Professional! Band Music from around the world at all levels. Solos and ensembles for all instruments. Instructional and method books. Groove Machine

For Fast Progress… Slow Down! “As a beginning band teacher and someone who still teaches private lessons, I can never stress enough the importance of practicing slowly! I always remind students that they will actually save time by practicing slowly so they don’t make mistakes. The second you make a mistake, you have started memorizing that mistake and then it takes even more time to correct it. So practice slowly and make sure to get everything correct and you’ll actually save time practicing.” Alice Brown Stratford Middle School Bloomingdale, Ill. Submit your PLAYING TIP online at www.sbomagazine.com or e-mail it to editor Eliahu Sussman at esussman@symphonypublishing.com. Winning entries will be published in School Band and Orchestra Magazine and contributor will receive a prize gift compliments of EPN Travel Services, Inc.
