Teaching the Postsecondary Music Student with Disabilities provides valuable information and practical strategies for teaching the college music student. With rising numbers of students with disabilities in university music schools, professors are being asked to accommodate students in their studios, classes, and ensembles. Most professors have little training or experience in teaching students with disabilities. This book provides a resource for creating an inclusive music education for students who audition and enter music school. Teaching the Postsecondary Music Student with Disabilities covers all of the topics that all readers need to know including law, assistive technology, high-incidence and low-incidence disabilities, providing specific details on the disability and how it impacts the learning of the music student.
