This page provides additional resources for music teachers and students interested in using IAM Music Repertoire, and it accompanies chapter 3, section 3.3.2 of my PhD dissertation, “Integrated Arts” Pedagogy and Philosophy. Most scores are attached as Appendix B of the dissertation, which will be available in July 2016 through Library and Archives Canada (come back, I will insert a link here).
Please use these files and the scores for learning practice, personal training, and pedagogical aid. All materials are copyrighted (© Nina Soyfer 2016). Please let me know if you are performing these songs in a school setting, and if you are willing to share a video. If you wish to use them for a paid concert or recording, please contact me for permission and SOCAN for appropriate arrangements.
