Learning by Listening: The Wiscasset Music Listening Course - Volume 1 (20 Musical Examples and Glossary). By B. Warren. Edited by Betsy Warren-Davis and Susan Baker Godoy. Learning by Listening: The Wiscasset Music Listening Course. Instructional. Spiral-bound book and Listening CD. Published by Wiscasset Music Publishing (WC.M-58005-801-0).
Volume 1 contains a 60-minute CD of short excerpts from 20 compositions. Each piece is preceded by an announcement of the title of the excerpt and name of the composer. An accompanying book includes the printed music for each excerpt. Using the book, students gain a familiarity with the written form of music, just as they are exposed early to the alphabet before learning to read.
About Learning by Listening: The Wiscasset Music Listening Course
In 1997, Betsy Warren-Davis and Susan Baker Godoy began putting their philosophy of learning by listening into action with The Wiscasset Music Listening Course. In a paper Warren-Davis wrote, ("The Lost Art of Listening"), she makes a case for returning the art of listening to school curricula, and the course series is designed to forward music education through supervised listening. The course offers an easy, flexible, and cost-effective way for educators to introduce students to music from different cultures spanning 8 centuries.The short playing times of the excerpts and different styles of music make the course easily adaptable to the needs and resources of any school and teaching staff. Teachers are encouraged to keep commentary about the music or composers to a minimum, simply letting the music speak for itself. The course can be used to form the core of a music program, or one or two excerpts can be added to enrich an existing class. Selections can also make a thought-provoking backdrop to a course in history or art.As envisioned, each volume has been designed to stand alone and will be available to order in any sequence.
