Overview

There is no question that music makes a significant contribution to the quality of human life and that music can play a valuable role in the learning of virtually all subjects taught in the elementary schools. Hoffer's text is a concise, easy-to-understand book that covers the essentials, enabling future elementary classroom teachers to contribute to their students' learning of music. It emphasizes the cooperative-supportive role of elementary classroom teachers with music teachers and demonstrates how music can be used with other curricular and classroom activities to enhance and enrich the learning of all subjects. Futhermore, the text's comprehensive coverage is more than adequate for those teachers who find themselves responsible for all the music instruction their students will receive.
