This second edition of TIPS: The Child Voice was prepared in response to demand for an updated and expanded version of the highly successful 1997 edition. This edition takes into account the broadening base of information regarding the nature of the singing voice. Now with strategies for the voice in transition during early adolescence, as well as strategies, games and activities to nurture the voice in early childhood, you'll find more suggestions for selecting materials and more recommended sources and resources. Also new are sample materials and activities, but you'll still find TIPS to use in student portfolios. These ideas, culled from scholars and experienced teachers, should prove useful to not only music educators, but also early childhood specialists, middle school teachers, and everyone working with students during those critical times of development of our natural instrument . . . the singing voice. « less more »
