The Cambridge Companion to Conducting Book Excerpt:

In this wide-ranging inside view of the history and practice of conducting, analysis and advice comes directly from working conductors, including Sir Charles Mackerras on opera, Bramwell Tovey on being an Artistic Director, Martyn Brabbins on modern music, Leon Botstein on programming and Vance George on choral conducting, and from those who work closely with conductors: a leading violinist describes working as a soloist with Stokowski, Ormandy and Barbirolli, while Solti and Abbado s studio producer explains orchestral recording, and one of the world s most powerful managers tells all. The book includes advice on how to conduct different types of groups (choral, opera, symphony, early music) and provides a substantial history of conducting as a study of national traditions. It is an unusually honest book about a secretive industry and managers, artistic directors, soloists, players and conductors openly discuss their different perspectives for the first time.

The Art of the Conductor Book Excerpt:

"John Watkins has used his years of experience on both sides of the baton to create a charming introduction to the art of conducting. There are not many reference books that deal with the 'how to' of directing a group of musicians. This practical guide to conducting wisely stays away from musical theory and concentrates on how to communicate with musicians from base amateur to seasoned professional This is a must for a newly aspiring conductor, and an experienced conductor could very well use this as a refresher." -John Tozer, music director, Scarborough, Ontario An invaluable reference guide for musicians of all types, The Art of the Conductor contains clear and detailed descriptions of universally accepted techniques used by the world's best and most successful music conductors. Classically trained musician and conductor John J. Watkins discusses the evolution of conducting technique and how it relates to various forms of music, and he outlines the wide array of skills conductors need today. He also explains the finer points of technique and control, including beat patterns and signals, tempo changes, and using the left hand, to make the conducting experience as rewarding as possible. The Art of the Conductor will help conductors, choristers, and instrumentalists build their skills and confidence for more relaxed, enjoyable, and polished performances that audiences will love.

Maestros and Their Music Book Excerpt:

An exuberant, uniquely accessible, beautifully illustrated look inside the enigmatic art and craft of conducting, from a celebrated conductor whose international career has spanned half a century. John Mauceri brings a lifetime of experience to bear in an unprecedented, hugely informative, consistently entertaining exploration of his profession, rich with anecdotes from decades of working alongside the greatest names of the music world. With candor and humor, Mauceri makes clear that conducting is itself a composition: of legacy and tradition, techniques handed down from master to apprentice--and more than a trace of ineffable magic. He reveals how conductors approach a piece of music (a calculated combination of personal interpretation, imagination, and insight into the composer's intent); what it takes to communicate solely through gesture, with sometimes hundreds of performers at once; and the occasionally glamorous, often challenging life of the itinerant maestro. Mauceri, who worked closely with Leonard Bernstein for eighteen years, studied with Leopold Stokowski, and was on the faculty of Yale University for fifteen years, is the perfect guide to the allure and theater, passion and drudgery, rivalries and relationships of the conducting life.

Individual Spirituality in Post nonclassical Arts Education Book Excerpt:

This volume is a collective work bringing together Ukrainian researchers in the field of arts education. Professional artistic education in Ukraine is currently one of the most important directions of a person’s spiritual and ideological development. It suggests that the spiritual development of an individual can be fulfilled through musical art. To this end, this book presents a set of methodological approaches and principles of post-nonclassical didactics allowing the formation of a new model of post-nonclassical knowledge in the system of professional artistic education. The results provided here will be of great practical importance, and can be used for drawing up special courses, methodological recommendations, and training guides on artistic disciplines. The volume, which has a role to play in the scientific reflection of new trends, will be useful to researchers, educationalists, students, and all those interested in the modern processes involved in the development of artistic education, and who are looking for new pathways for the cultural development of Ukraine, in the context of identifying the value of post-nonclassical culture.

Dreaming Souls Book Excerpt:

What, if anything, do dreams tell us about ourselves? What is the relationship between types of sleep and types of dreams? Does dreaming serve any purpose? Or are dreams simply meaningless mental noise--"unmusical fingers wandering over the piano keys"? With expertise in philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience, Owen Flanagan is uniquely qualified to answer these questions. And in Dreaming Souls he provides both an accessible survey of the latest research on sleep and dreams and a compelling new theory about the nature and function of dreaming. Flanagan argues that while sleep has a clear biological function and adaptive value, dreams are merely side effects, "free riders," irrelevant from an evolutionary point of view. But dreams are hardly unimportant. Indeed, Flanagan argues that dreams are self-expressive, the result of our need to find or to create meaning, even when we're sleeping. Rejecting Freud's theory of manifest and latent content--of repressed wishes appearing in disguised form--Flanagan shows how brainstem activity during sleep generates a jumbled profusion of memories, images, thoughts, emotions, and desires, which the cerebral cortex then attempts to shape into a more or less coherent story. Such dream-narratives range from the relatively mundane worries of non REM sleep to the fantastic confabulations of deep REM that resemble psychotic episodes in their strangeness. But however bizarre these narratives may be, they can shed light on our mental life, our well being, and our sense of self. Written with clarity, lively wit, and remarkable insight, Dreaming Souls offers a fascinating new way of apprehending one of the oldest mysteries of mental life.

An Index to Articles Published in The Etude Magazine 1883 1957 Part 2 Book Excerpt:

Annotation: The Index is published in two physical volumes and sold as a set for $250.00. As America's geography and societal demands expanded, the topics in The Etude magazine (first published in 1883) took on such important issues as women in music; immigration; transportation; Native American and African American composers and their music; World War I and II; public schools; new technologies (sound recordings, radio, and television); and modern music (jazz, gospel, blues, early 20th century composers) in addition to regular book reviews, teaching advice, interviews, biographies, and advertisements. Though a valued source particularly for private music teachers, with the de-emphasis on the professional elite and the decline in salon music, the magazine ceased publication in 1957. This Index to the articles in The Etude serves as a companion to E. Douglas Bomberger's 2004 publication on the music in The Etude. Published a little over fifty years after the final issue reached the public, this Index chronicles vocal and instrumental technique, composer biographies, position openings, department store orchestras, the design of a successful music studio, how to play an accordion, recital programs in music schools, and much more. The Index is a valuable tool for research, particularly in the music culture of American in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. With titles of these articles available, the doors are now open for further research in the years to come.

The Oxford Handbook of Preservice Music Teacher Education in the United States Book Excerpt:

The Oxford Handbook of Preservice Music Teacher Education in the United States identifies the critical need for change in Pre-K-12 music education. Collectively, the handbook's 56 contributors argue that music education benefits all students only if educators actively work to broaden diversity in the profession and consistently include diverse learning strategies, experiences, and perspectives in the classroom. In this handbook, contributors encourage music teachers, researchers, policy makers, and music teacher educators to take up that challenge. Throughout the handbook, contributors provide a look at ways music teacher educators prepare teachers to enter the music education profession and offer suggestions for ways in which new teachers can advocate for and adapt to changes in contemporary school settings. Building upon students' available resources, contributors use research-based approaches to identify the ways in which educational methods and practices must transform in order to successfully challenge existing music education boundaries.

The Art of Theoretical Biology Book Excerpt:

This beautifully crafted book collects images, which were created during the process of research in all fields of theoretical biology. Data analysis, numerical treatment of a model, or simulation results yield stunning images, which represent pieces of art just by themselves. The approach of the book is to present for each piece of visualization a lucid synopsis of the scientific background as well as an outline of the artistic vision.
