Title: Toward a pedagogy of extended techniques for horn derived from Vincent Persichetti's Parable for solo horn, opus 120
Author: Deats, Carol Jean
Abstract: Extended techniques are unfamiliar , unusual , unconventional , nontraditional , novel effects and extra musical sounds occurring in contemporary music beginning in approximately 1970 . Douglas Hill categorizes the following extended techniques for horn in his book , Extended Techniques for Horn : range , mutes , hand muting , tonguing /articulations , trills and tremolos , glissandos , half -valved effects , varied timbral potentials , vibrato , quarter -tones , vocalizations , air sounds , mouthpiece effects , miscellaneous , and combinations . An investigation into the area of pedagogy of extended techniques for horn proved a strong need for research and pedagogy since the number of extended techniques in the horn literature far exceeds the amount of supportive pedagogical material . To address this deficiency , the author used Vincent Persichetti : Parable for Solo Horn , Op . 120 , one of the most widely performed horn solos with extended techniques , as a vehicle for developing pedagogy of extended techniques for horn . This dissertation identifies and categorizes each extended technique in the Parable , describes the physical production of each technique , and provides original etudes and transcriptions toward the development , mastery , and performance of each technique . The goals of this dissertation are : 1 . To increase awareness of extended techniques in 20th and 21st century horn literature 2 . To fill the lacuna in the literature between occurrences of extended techniques and parallel pedagogy 3 . To improve levels of teaching extended techniques 4 . To improve levels of performing extended techniques As a result of this dissertation , there has come to be additional pedagogy of extended techniques in Vincent Persichetti's Parable for Solo Horn , Op . 120 . This pedagogy can easily be transferred and adapted for use in many other contemporary works for horn , thereby contributing to filling a tremendous lacuna in the area of horn pedagogy .
