Development and Trial of Techniques for Teaching Contemporary Music to Young String Students. Final Report.
Farish, Margaret K.
This is the second of two related studies designed to encourage the composition and use of contemporary music for young string players. Expanded techniques to intensify rhythmic training and introduce ensemble skills were effective. Second and third year students learned to play the pieces well and profited from the experience. Although 20th century composers and children are highly compatible, teachers often resist their responsibility to act as the essential intermediary link. The most serious obstacle appears to be reluctance to spend sufficient time on preparation to meet new musical demands. For related document see ED 025 850. (Author/CK)
