Product Description Header Image Information about Singing In The Lower Secondary School



This is an essential text on an important area of the music curriculum consistently judged weak or inadequate by school inspectors in Britain. It covers social, physiological, musical, and pedagogical aspects of young adolescent singing, with focus on Key Stage 3 (ages 11-14) and the progression from primary school. Grounded in extensive research and authoritatively written, it uses case studies to illustrate best practice, and introduces the principles of cambiata, a dedicated approach to the adolescent voice. Other chapters contain practical and proven advice on repertoire, technique, and the motivation of reluctant singers, boosting the confidence of teachers for whom choral work is not the main specialism.
Comprehensive account of how to provide for changing voices in class vocal work for children of any background/ability
Summary of advances in choral/vocal pedagogy in the USA and how to apply these in UK schools
Research- and practice-based account of the Cambiata singing principle as adapted for use in the UK
Analysis of the difficulties in motivating young adolescents to sing in school, with practical solutions
Ideal resource and confidence booster for teachers for whom singing is not the main specialism
