Summary, etc.:
From the Publisher: Explaining the why, what, and how of music teaching-for musicians who want to explore teaching as a career. Musician and Teacher blends traditional music education with innovative curricular and educational changes currently taking place in the field. Designed for the first course in music education, Musician and Teacher surveys the theoretical, philosophical, historical, social, and psychological foundations of teaching music and pays tribute to the local and global realms of music teaching and learning. At the same time, the book examines the developmental issues inherent in teaching music to children and adolescents along with the practicalities of motivating students and managing a classroom, providing the concrete application beginning educators need to successfully teach music to children in grades K-12.
