Model Music Programs: Ideas for Everyone presents practical applications from the selected programs, as well as the best of the rest of the applicants, to share with all music educators. Learn how creative music teachers have built successful music programs in categories such as obtaining outside funding, partnering with the community, serving students with special needs, multicultural and interdisciplinary learning, and collaborating with professionals. In addition, use the wealth of resources to replicate the successful aspects of the model programs. In a nationwide search for model music programs, MENC judges selected twelve programs for special recognition. Model Music Programs: Ideas for Everyone showcases the selected programs in four categories: technology, interdisciplinary and multicultural learning, music for all, and standards-based learning. See how each selected program handles resources, scheduling, facilities, community and booster club support, as well as budget and school administration support. Model Music Programs: Ideas for Everyone also examines characteristics that contributed to the success of the model programs: adequate resources, universality, exemplary personnel, strong community ties, and a clear creative vision.

Editorial Reviews

Tim Lautzenheiser
Model Music Programs: Ideas for Everyone is a valuable contribution to the growing library of materials available to ALL music educators. Filled with pragmatic examples of successful ideas, it serves as a positive blueprint for all those interested in creating a quality music programs in the school setting. It is a first class resource guide based on real-life experiences.
Lynn Brinckmeyer
Music teachers of all genres and levels can find useful strategies in this book. The model programs share ideas from guitar for lower-functioning special needs students to ideal facilities with a $2 million rehearsal space. The summaries and analyses were especially informative, and the practical applications can help create momentum to move from information to action. I especially love the list of resources and Web sites!
Dee Hansen
Model Music Programs: Ideas for Everyone offers a wealth of ideas and informational resources for music educators in exceptionally diverse economic, cultural, and demographic settings. The book is a valuable gift from the teacher-leaders who shared their educational successes and truly exemplifies one of the great strengths of our profession—learning from each other.
