Designed for prospective teachers without extensive music backgrounds, this market-leading text provides both a thorough overview of the basic elements of music and a clear sequence of instructional steps that allows readers to participate in the same learning process they will later use as teachers.
Hallmark features of the text include: the nine National Standards cued to each teaching strategy, information on the most current thinking in music education, a balanced representation of songs, and Specialized Areas addressed with clarity and comprehensiveness. Packaged with an audio CD for use with the lessons, the text continues to be written in such a way that, once students leave the college classroom, they can easily use the text package as a resource handbook with their own students, without continued music specialist assistance and.
