Orchestra Expressions: Violin - Book 1 (w/ CD)
Brought to you by Kathleen DeBerry Brungard, Michael Alexander, Gerald Anderson, Sandra Dackow, consulting editor Anne C. Witt, and contributing arrangers Jack Bullock, Victor López, and Tom Roed: Orchestra Expressions provides music educators at all levels with easy-to-use, exciting tools to meet daily classroom challenges and bring new vibrancy and depth to teaching music. The lessons were written based on the National Standards for the Arts in Music -- not retro-fitted to the Standards. The program is music literacy-based and satisfies reading and writing mandates in orchestra class. The pedagogy involves a "four-fingers-down" start for every instrument and separate but simultaneous development of both hands.
Each student book features an attractive full-color interior with easy-to-read notes and includes:
- A 92-track accompaniment CD that covers Units 1-18 (a second CD covering Units 19-33 is available separately)
- Historical notes on some of the most notable composers of orchestral music
- A thorough glossary of musical terms
