Summary Designed as a core text, the second edition of A Sound Approach to Teaching Instrumentalists applies contemporary research on musical content and learning sequences to the instrumental classroom. Rather than reinforce traditional teaching methodologies, A Sound Approach to Teaching Instrumentalists seeks to encourage musical independence and basic musicianship among students. Its premise is that music consists primarily of tonal and rhythmic content and that instrumental teaching and learning can best be accomplished when musical content and learning skills are properly sequenced. A valuable resource for students and professionals, A Sound Approach to Teaching Instrumentalists, Second Edition will become the standard by which instrumental methods texts are measured in years to come.
