Overview

The Musical Classroom: Backgrounds, Models, and Skills for Elementary Teaching by Carolynn A. Lindeman

The Musical Classroom: Backgrounds, Models, and Skills for Elementary Teaching, Ninth Edition, is designed for students majoring in elementary or music education. Through eight editions, this book has been a market leader in its field. Its goal has been to help teachers—some who may only have a limited background in music—prepare to make music a part of the daily lives of their students. The model lessons remain the centerpiece of the book's long-lasting success. Supported by a collection of children's songs from around the world, instructional information for learning to play basic instruments, and the theoretical, pedagogical, and practical backgrounds needed for reaching all learners, pre-service and in-service teachers can make their classrooms musical classrooms.
