'It is more of the same, but when the product is so good, who could possibly complain?' The Singer
Kevin Stannard taught music in Oxfordshire schools for ten years before moving to the University of Wolverhampton in 1995. His work has centred around training primary music specialists and teaching on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Music and Popular Music. He is the Director of the University Chamber Choir and currently has responsibilities for Performance & Outreach in the School of Performing Arts.
The Introductions to these books are veritable teaching courses in themselves, and the notes for each song provide an immense amount of preparatory guidance on how to approach it. Clare Stevens, The Singer, June 07 OUP's Voiceworks series, edited by Peter Hunt, now consists of eight volumes, and all have rightly been highly acclaimed. Junior Voiceworks 2 will be welcomed with enthusiasm by teachers and choir directors whose copies of Junior Voiceworks 1 are perhaps falling apart through overuse. Like its predecessor, this one is edited by Kevin Stannard, who has found, or in some cases written, a delightful selection of unfamiliar songs aimed at primary schoolchildren. The collection is international in flavour and includes a mixture of playground rhymes, folk songs, traditional and contemporary repertoire in a wide range of moods and styles.
