From the Publisher"This text does an excellent job of presenting facts about each approach in a comparative way—it is organized to build students' knowledge by highlighting contrasts and similarities of many approaches at once. I find this to be the text's biggest strength. It does not favor one approach over another, but it creates an image of elementary music education in a global sense where many teaching approaches exist and are often intertwined. Compatible and incompatible philosophies and teaching tools are identified. This provides a sense of perspective that students and beginning teachers must have if they are to find their own most effective teaching manner and potentially specialize in one or more approach."
"MUSIC IN CHILDHOOD is the most comprehensive publication I have seen for Music Education students. The inclusion of philosophical, pedagogical, and practical information makes it a valuable resource."
