The Teaching of Instrumental Music, Fifth Edition introduces music education majors to basic instrumental pedagogy for the instruments and ensembles commonly found in the elementary and secondary curricula. It focuses on the core competencies required for teacher certification in instrumental music, with the pervasive philosophy to assist teachers as they develop an instrumental music program based on understanding and respecting all types of music. Parts I and II focus on essential issues for a successful instrumental program, presenting first the history and foundations, followed by effective strategies in administrative tasks and classroom teaching. Parts III, IV, and V are devoted to the skills and techniques of woodwind, brass and percussion, and string instruments. In all, The Teaching of Instrumental Music is the complete reference for the beginning instrumental teacher, commonly retained in a student’s professional library for its unique and comprehensive coverage.

Dieses Buch beschäftigt sich mit den physikalischen Systemen und psychophysikalischen Prozessen, die im Zusammenhang mit jenem Phänomen stehen, das wir allgemein als "Musik" bezeichnen. Es soll interessierten Musikern helfen zu verstehen, auf welche physikalische Weise musikalische Töne erzeugt werden und sich im Raum ausbreiten, und wie Musik vom Zuhörer empfangen und empfunden wird. Physikalisches und mathematisches Vorwissen jenseits des Abiturs ist dazu nicht erforderlich. Den musikliebenden Wissenschaftlern sollen viele Fragen, die sie sich bezüglich Musik und Tonempfindung gestellt haben dürften, beantwortet werden. Den Musikpsychologen wird ein Versuch dargeboten, die Frage "Warum lieben wir Musik?" von einem neuro-funktionellen Standpunkt aus zu erläutern. Die 3. Auflage wurde gründlich überarbeitet, um die neuesten Forschungsergebnisse über Tonerzeugung, Physiologie des Gehörs und den kognitiven Prozessen beim Verarbeiten von Sinnesinformation einzufügen.
Viele Musiker - ob Anfänger oder Fortgeschrittene - empfinden Musiktheorie als abschreckend und fragen sich: "Wozu das Ganze?" Die Antwort ist einfach: Schon ein wenig Grundwissen über Musiktheorie, hilft Ihnen, Ihre Bandbreite als Musiker enorm zu vergrößern. Michael Pilhofer und Holly Day erklären Ihnen leicht verständlich alles Wichtige, was Sie über Musiktheorie wissen müssen - vom Lesen von Noten bis zum Komponieren eigener Songs. Sie erfahren alles über Rhythmus, Tempo, Dynamik und Co., lernen, wie Tonleitern und Akkordfolgen aufgebaut sind, wie Sie vorgehen müssen, um einer Melodie auch Harmonie zu verleihen und vieles mehr. Wenn Sie dachten, Musiktheorie sei trocken, dürfte dieses Buch eine angenehme Überraschung für Sie sein.
While the history of musical instruments is nearly as old as civilisation itself, the science of acoustics is quite recent. By understanding the physical basis of how instruments are used to make music, one hopes ultimately to be able to give physical criteria to distinguish a fine instrument from a mediocre one. At that point science may be able to come to the aid of art in improving the design and performance of musical instruments. As yet, many of the subtleties in musical sounds of which instrument makers and musicians are aware remain beyond the reach of modern acoustic measurements. This book describes the results of such acoustical investigations - fascinating intellectual and practical exercises. Addressed to readers with a reasonable grasp of physics who are not put off by a little mathematics, this book discusses most of the traditional instruments currently in use in Western music. A guide for all who have an interest in music and how it is produced, as well as serving as a comprehensive reference for those undertaking research in the field.

The Science of Sound is widely recognized as the leading textbook in the field. It provides an excellent introduction to acoustics for readers without college physics or a strong background in mathematics. In the Third Edition, Richard Moore and Paul Wheeler join Tom Rossing in updating The Science of Soundto include a wide range of important technological developments in the field of acoustics. New exercises and review questions have been added to the end of each chapter to help readers study the material.For college instructors and students.
Most books concerned with physics and music take an approach that puts physical theory before application. Consequently, these works tend to dampen aesthetic fascination with preludes burdened by an overabundance of algebraic formulae. In Measured Tones: The Interplay of Physics and Music Third Edition, Ian Johnston a professor of astrophysics and a connoisseur of music, offers an informal historical approach that shows the evolution of both theory and application at the intersection of physics and music. Exceptionally accessible, insightful, and now updated to consider modern technology and recent advances, the new edition of this critically acclaimed and bestselling classic — Features a greater examination of psycho-acoustics and its role in the design of MP3s Includes expanded information on the gamelan and other Asian percussion instruments Introduces detailed discussions of binary notation, digitization, and electronic manipulation of music We believe that order exists, and we look for it. In that respect the aims of science and of music are identical—the desire to find harmony. And surely, without that very human desire, science would be a cold and sterile undertaking. With myriad illustrations and historical anecdotes, this volume will delight those student required to approach this topic from either a physics and music concentration, as well as anyone who is fascinated with concepts of harmony expressed in nature, as well as in the instruments and composition of human expression’s purest form. A complementary website provides sound files, further reading, and instructional support.
An ideal text for advanced undergraduates, the book provides the foundations needed to understand the acoustics of rooms and musical instruments as well as the basics for scientists and engineers interested in noise and vibration. The new edition contains four new chapters devoted primarily to applications of acoustical principles in everyday life: Microphones and Other Transducers, Sound in Concert Halls and Studios, Sound and Noise Outdoors; and Underwater Sound.
This book incorporates the developments in digital audio technology, including consumer products, into a firm foundation of the physics of sound.
