Aaron Copland: Music of an Uncommon Man

Stanton’s Sheet Music is very excited about a new classroom resource from Hal Leonard, Aaron Copland: The Music of an Uncommon Man.

This title is the first in a new series for the music classroom that presents essential selections from the Leonard Bernstein recorded library with units of study built around them. It features some of the more popular works of Aaron Copland, including Fanfare for the Common Man, and his ballets Billy the Kid, Appalachian Spring and Rodeo.

Make music listening engaging and active with beautifully-designed full-color listening maps, easy-to-follow lesson plans and full-length recorded orchestral versions of Copland’s music. Included in the Classroom Kit is the Bernstein Century Copland CD featuring Leonard Bernstein conducting the New York Philharmonic. The Enhanced CD in the Teacher book contains audio folksong recordings, full-color PDFs of the student booklet, student handouts and bonus materials, all for duplication or projection.

Part II features an in-depth study of Copland’s ballet Rodeo, specifically “Hoe-down,” based on the Artful Learning transformative learning system inspired by Leonard Bernstein. Working together in learning centers, students engage in cross-curricular activities that are incorporated into the music lessons.
