Music Assessment for Better Ensembles
Assessment is central to ensemble music. Yet, teachers do not always have the expertise to harness its potential to improve rehearsals and performances, and promote and document student learning. Written specifically for band, choir, and orchestra teachers at all levels, this book contains all of the information necessary to design and use assessment in a thriving music classroom. The first section addresses foundations such as learning targets, metacognition, and growth mindset. Assessment jargon such as formative assessment, summative assessment, Assessment for Learning, self and peer assessment, and authentic assessment is clarified and illustrated with music examples. Readers will learn practical strategies for choosing which concepts to assess, which methods to use, and how to use results to provide accurate and effective feedback to students. The second section brings assessment fundamentals into the music room. Filled with practical advice, each chapter examines a different facet of musicianship. Sample assessments in all performance areas are provided, including music literacy, fundamentals and technique, terminology, interpretation, evaluation and critique, composition and improvisation, beliefs and attitudes, and more. There is an entire chapter devoted to tips for applying assessment and feedback strategies in rehearsals, which can result in a fresh and effective approach to performance preparation. The final section is an examination of grading practices in music classes. Readers will gain information about ensemble grades that communicate what students know and are able to do, rather than whether they remembered their black socks. A variety of approaches, including Standards-Based Grading, are evaluated in light of music teachers' unique situations. The book concludes with ways for music educators to take their first steps toward implementing these strategies in their own teaching, including the use of instructional technology. Assessing like an expert is possible, and this book is just what teachers need to get started.

Ready, Set, Improvise!: The Nuts and Bolts of Music Improvisation
Improvisation - the creation of a unique combination of musical content within a musical context - is core to musicianship. As authors Suzanne L. Burton and Alden H. Snell II demonstrate, students already build skills that drive improvisation when they listen to music or imitate rhythmic patterns. Building from this observation, Ready, Set, Improvise! addresses improvisation in a cogent, clear, practical, and sequential manner. As an essential resource for music educators, this book synthesizes what we know about exemplary music teaching and learning, provides an easy-to-follow sequence for guiding improvisation instruction, and gives techniques for assessment of students' skill and conceptual development. Burton and Snell explore lessons in singing, rhythmic chanting, moving, and playing instrument exercises that prepare students to improvise. This all-in-one guide gives music teachers the necessary tools with which to plan the next steps for students to become independent musicians.

Notes for Singers
This book aims to highlight a subject which has become obscured and overcomplicated by half-truths and misconceptions. Contrary to a lot of current practice, singing is not about doing, but about thinking, feeling, and creating the right circumstances for our voices to work in. We all have pictures in our minds when we sing and they tend to influence our singing negatively. Notes for Singers offers ways to re-think our approach to singing, allowing our voices to work naturally. Singers often attribute their technical difficulties to breathing problems, but breathing plays a secondary role only: singing develops breathing, not breathing singing. If the mental approach to singing is right, the breath will largely take care of itself. We need to cultivate the ability to recognise and remember the sensations of each vowel on each note, so that we build up a mental register of sensations. We can't see inside our instruments (our voices), but we can create a mind map using our imaginations, so that we can visualise notes and vowels, which allows us to re-create any vowel on any particular note by an exercise of will (rather than by physical exertion). In addition, the book invites singers to think through familiar aspects of their singing in ways they may never have considered before: sight-reading, posture, auditions, interpretation, vocal identity, languages and true legato singing.
