Mary Ellen Pinzino
Giving Voice to Children's Artistry

A Guide for Music Teachers and Choral Conductors

This book presents a comprehensive view of children's musical artistry and how to develop it in both the music classroom and children's chorus. Author Mary Ellen Pinzino presents the musical mind as the gateway to children's artistry, addresses the power of movement in its embodiment and advancement, and shows how song-rhythm, melody, and text, independently and together-influence children's developing artistry musically, expressively, and vocally at every level. Accordingly, she also offers a multitude of specific songs that inspire children's artistry, all in various tonalities and meters and on a continuum of increasing difficulty.

Keeping the need for practical application in mind, Pinzino offers materials for implementation with children from kindergarten through seventh grade, as well as guidance for professional development. Content can be applied alongside any pedagogical methodology, as well as with older singers in the process of developing their own artistry. In short, this book makes the intangibles of children's artistry more tangible. It enables music teachers and choral conductors to draw artistry out of every child and draw every child into the choral art. It summons music teachers and choral conductors to bring artistry to the forefront of every music class and choral rehearsal-and to the forefront of the field of music education as a whole.
