In “Spice Up Phonics Instruction with Music: Singing and Chanting Through the Alphabet,” a variety of musical activities are used to expose children to sample words for each letter of the alphabet. The primary goal of these activities is to guide children to learn phonics using aural, oral, visual, and kinesthetic modalities. Through the stimulation of different senses, children are better able to store a warehouse of sample words in their long‐term memory.

In this article, Echo Editors Lisa Lehmberg and Chet-Yeng Loong examine the results of an online forum in which six AOSA members with varied teaching experience participated. Panelists discussed their perspectives on the first years of teaching and the Orff Schulwerk approach and commented on challenges faced by new general music teachers, several of which parallel previous research findings.

The purpose of “E Ho`okani `Ukulele Kākou/Let’s Play `Ukulele” is to provide a resource for students to learn to play `ukulele, partly by rote, but also through music literacy. The chapters are sequenced according to difficulty of playing the `ukulele. Videos are provided to demonstrate playing techniques. Each step of the learning process is clearly stated, from teaching a song and playing the `ukulele, to practicing musical concepts. A student packet as well as a supplementary package are also included. The additional songs in the supplementary package will help students learn more about Hawaiian hula and culture. This book comes with seven SMART Board® files to help teachers deliver the materials. Grading scales, rubrics and quizzes are also provided. Music educators can relate class assessments to the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards (NCCAS) and the Music Core Standards.

The purpose of this research was to determine the influences of singing instruction on the voices of children between the ages of five and eight. Subjects (N =53) were children who had participated in a Saturday music program that met once a week. Group I subjects (n = 19), aged five and six, had participated for seven months.  Group II subjects (n = 18), aged six and seven, had participated for more than seven, but fewer than 14 months. Group III subjects (n = 16), aged seven and eight, had participated for 21 months. A common song, and three songs specifically selected for each of the three groups were used to assess the singing. All the subjects sang the same research songs during the pre- and posttests. Posttests were conducted after subjects had participated in the music classes. The research songs were sung in every lesson. From the results, it was found that Group III and I subjects sang the selected songs more accurately than Group II. There was no significant difference among all the subjects when singing the common song. Fifteen subjects were assessed a year later for the common song finding no significant difference.

For music educators interested in enriching their music curriculum with authentic world music, NI HAO! Sing and Chant Your Way to China! presents nine authentic Chinese songs, chants and games in an easily accessible format for teachers to use with their students pre-K to grade 5.

The included 30-minute DVD provides an introduction to Chinese culture for both students and teachers. Children who are native speakers of Chinese sing and/or speak the songs and chants, and are valuable models for pronunciation of the Chinese language. Detailed lesson plans and SMART Board® files are designed to make teaching each activity pedagogically appropriate and efficient. By utilizing the plans and SMART Board®, music educators will find it easy to integrate these materials into their curriculum.
