SHE TAKES EXCEPTION

GABRIELLE STOCKER writes in response to our Cabrillo Fest review of August 14, “I do need to express an opinion contrary to your statement that “The Prisoner”, by Karim Al-Zand, “left little for the mind to take home.” Perhaps I was so moved by the piece because it spoke to my heart in addition to my mind, or because I had learned so much about the construction of the piece from hearing it in two rehearsals. Or because I am a singer in a Santa Cruz choral group. At any rate, for me it was probably the most memorable piece of this summer’s season.”

NEW ARGUMENTS FOR MUSIC TEACHERS

richard-hallamWHY MUSIC EDUCATION is vital to humans. A seminal lecture from Richard J Hallam, past president of the Incorporated Society of Musicians.

Children in Key Stage 1 (5 to7 year olds) should be taught to:
• use their voices expressively and creatively by singing songs and speaking
chants and rhymes
• play tuned and untuned instruments musically
• listen with concentration and understanding to a range of high-quality live and
recorded music
• experiment with, create, select and combine sounds using the inter-related
dimensions of music.

Children in Key Stage 2 (7 to 11 year olds) should be taught to sing and play
musically with increasing confidence and control. They should develop an
understanding of musical composition, organising and manipulating ideas within
musical structures and reproducing sounds from aural memory.
