Overview

Going beyond the music-literature link, The Music and Literacy Connection looks at the skills that are parallel in music learning and text reading. This new book by respected experts in the field can be used by music advocates, prekindergarten through third-grade teachers, classroom teachers, music teachers, and preservice teachers to: discuss the role arts play in literacy, show how music teachers are reading teachers and reading teachers are music teachers, learn about the auditory and visual processes used in both language and music learning, enhance reading strategies using musical activities, help students demonstrate understanding of music through reading activities, help reading comprehension using musical activities, use writing in the music classroom.
