Developing Your Musical Mental Map - by Dr. Melissa Gerber Knecht

Break Through From Intermediate to Advanced String Playing!

80% of violin and viola students drop out by the end of their first year of private study. Of the remaining 20%, three out of four feel stuck at the intermediate level and frustrated by lack of improvement. Dr. Melissa Gerber Knecht has devoted herself to researching and devising a method in which the string player's mind can grasp the necessary understanding of music and his/her instrument pedagogy in order to move forward into advanced repertoire. This development of a “Musical Mental Map” as Dr. Melissa Gerber Knecht describes, “is designed for use in private or group violin lessons for teaching application of music theory directly towards the instrument."

The book is made up of 18 lessons, divided among 4 units, which offer options for self-directed learning or instructor-led teaching. The self-directed learning option is useful for practicing at home, with audio clues and instructions available at MusicalMentalMap.com. While the research and motives behind each lesson is very technical and even scientific, the directions are clear and simple to understand, freeing the student from verbose explanations. The lessons help developing instrumentalists grasp the rudiments of music theory in a way that relates directly to their instrument and written music, using methods like “chunking”, “mental mapping”, and aural skill testing.

“The book, Developing Your Musical Mental Map, is a truly fantastic addition towards helping students develop essential skills to become well rounded musicians!”Dr. Emily Rolka, President of the Suzuki Association of Minnesota.

"Single-line players need to be able to scan, recognize and anticipate patterns ... Basically, reading words instead of letters." - Dr. Melissa Knecht

Folk Songs of America - Beginner Book for Violin by Evelyn Avsharian

Item# A65

$4.95

In Stock

This collection of 14 folk songs is ideal for the intermediate beginner. The book opens with a brief history of folk music and fiddling, then it encourages the player to add ornamentation to each piece once it has been learned. The notation is larger than standard engraving, but a little smaller than the beginning violin books by Avsharian, allowing for longer pieces and more illustration. All selections can be played in first position with no lowered or raised fingers. However, some songs have a recommendation for third position at the bottom and no fingerings are specified. All are in the key of A, D, G, and C and no sixteenth notes are used, but some bowings and rhythms might be new to beginners. There is included a one page lesson and worksheet on second, third, and fifth intervals that is on par with the level of playing in the book. Each song includes an illustration and fills one page. Titles: On Top of Old Smokey, Oh Suzanna, Oh Dear!, Comin’ Round the Mountain, This Old Man, Billy Boy, Camptown Races, Reveille, John Brown, Clementine, Michael Row Your Boat, Got the Whole World, and The Farmer in the Dell. 16 pages.
