Music in independent schools by Bernarr Rainbow( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first serious study of music in independent schools. The high standard of musical work in such schools has long been known but now Andrew Morris and his team have provided up-to-date details. There are contributions from seven individual schools - Bedford, Dulwich, Eton, Gresham's, St. Paul's, Uppingham and Worksop - as well as chapters about Girls' Schools, Preparatory Schools, Choir Schools and Specialist Schools. Andrew Morris was Director of Music at Bedford School for thirty-two years and was President of the Music Masters and Mistresses Association in 1996-97. He is thus ideally placed to mastermind a substantial compendium of information which is eminently readable and absorbing. The book includes material from Bernarr Rainbow's study, Music in the English Public School (1990) and brings it up to date. As a historian, Rainbow looked back at how music developed in independent schools. Progress was slow, even tortuous, but Rainbow's fascinating documents, supported by his commentary, show how idealism won through and Morris and his colleagues bear eloquent witness to the very positive development over the last fifty years. ANDREW MORRIS taught in secondary modern, grammar and comprehensive schools in London before becoming Director of Music at Bedford School for thirty-two years. He was President of the Music Masters' and Mistresses' Association from 1996-97 and President of the RAM Club at the Royal Academy of Music 2005-06. He has examined for the ABRSM for over thirty years. DR BERNARR RAINBOW is widely recognised as the leading authority on the history of music education.

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This detailed study is based on reliable information and developments can be traced in a context where school music had made great strides since the nineteenth century. Borland discusses the teaching of notation; song repertoire; listening to music; percussion bands; the use of the piano and pianola; and concerts for children. He brings matters up to date in terms of technology in the 1920s by considering the gramophone and radio broadcasts as teaching aids."--
