This long-awaited revision of this best-selling book has been completely updated to meld the classic content of previous editions with the latest in music theory and research, and contains a fresh focus on multicultural music. National music standards are teamed with the comprehensive survey of professional research previous users cherish, and linked to a wealth of activities for using music—including, in this edition, opera, classical music, and folk music—and movement experiences with children from birth to age six. Sections on developmentally-appropriate practice present concrete experiences and activities for sharing music with all children in an inclusive environment in which the enjoyment of music is seen to be paramount. Reference sections, at the end of each chapter provide more than 90 new, current references to professional literature and help back up chapter content with the latest information on theory, appropriate musical content, activities, and more. Music from Around the World sections in every chapter highlight the exceptional diversity of music—and music’s potential for encouraging cross-cultural awareness and sensitivity. Extensive appendices of songs, books lists, glossaries, keyboard diagrams, fingering charts, and ideas for creating classroom-made instruments constitute an invaluable source of background and resource information for teaching music—and make it easy for teachers-to-be to create a rich, nurturing musical environment in their very first classrooms. For pre-service and in-service elementary school music teachers.
