Relative Effectiveness of Two Methods of Teaching Personal Development to Homemaking Girls

It became the purpose of this study, therefore, to determine whether more measurable growth in personality is achieved by teaching a special unit in personality than by including such subject matter as an integral part of the homemaking program.

A Critique of Etudes and Method Books for Advanced Euphoniumists: Status Quo and Future Recommendations

A Critique of Etudes and Method Books for Advanced Euphoniumists: Status Quo and Future Recommendations

Date: May 2008
Creator: Saito, Mitsuru
Description: Etudes and method books played had an important role in teaching technique and musicality for all musicians. Euphonium players have been using pedagogical materials originally written for other brass instruments such as trumpet, cornet, and trombone. Those materials have been very effective in helping euphoniumists learn skills to play idiomatic nineteenth and early twentieth century repertoire. In recent years, many solo pieces for euphonium demanding advanced techniques have been composed. The difficulty of these solo works for euphonium has increased dramatically in the second half of the twentieth century. Traditional etudes and method books do not cover all the necessary techniques to play this modern repertoire. In the last two decades, many collections of etudes have been written specifically for euphonium, and several of them are technically challenging and aimed at advanced euphoniumists. This trend can be seen in the United States, France and England. In this paper, traditional standard pedagogical materials currently used by euphoniumists will be evaluated. Recent publications of pedagogical materials written exclusively for euphonium after 1990 will be introduced, and effective uses of old and new pedagogical materials for current euphonium players will be presented. An annotated list of the latest etudes composed exclusively for euphonium ...
