Editorial Reviews

Review


"A fabulous resource! David Xiques's pedagogical processes towards music literacy for young singers through outstanding choral literature are clear. His sequencing is invaluable for the conductor who wishes to approach masterful musicianship with beginning choirs." -- Georgia A. Newlin, DMA, Adelphi University, Past President, Organization of American Kodály Educators


"A thoughtful presentation of concepts that will be of use to teachers at many levels, Solfege and Sonority is the most coherent and broadly applicable pedagogy I have seen on this very important subject." --Joshua Habermann, Conductor, Dallas Symphony Chorus

I recently embarked on developing a sight-reading program for my voice studio, and I must say this book has been a tremendous help! All of the concepts Professor Xiques provides are workable in a private voice lesson format although he applies them to the choral classroom. The lessons are easy to follow and outlined well for the novice as well as for a teacher with more experience using the Kodaly method. I could not recommend this resource highly enough!!

Excellent resource! Extremely helpful in rehearsal planning and teaching of musical concepts. My favorite part is that the repertoire is appropriate and great for choirs, and with each concept there are several other pieces suggested. Using this book has worked very well with my girls chorus.

Perfect for the beginning teacher. Excellent way for veteran teachers to reflect on their method of delivery. Highly recommend.
