Ralf Beiderwieden: Teaching Music
Music instruction tends to be downplayed in education today. A music teacher has one or at most two hours a week to manage a task that is anything but simple: conveying the basics of music to the pupils. This is the starting point of the present book, which gives today’s music teacher a systematic methodology to make the most of classroom instruction.
Specific approaches are offered in the following areas:
- Lesson design
- Music theory
- Music education
- Aids and obstacles
The author points out how to achieve a balance between theoretical knowledge and practical application in singing or listening to music. Besides the standard terminology of music education, he introduces new concepts and their meanings in a straightforward manner. The book is designed to function as a toolbox that will enable teachers to teach music appropriately and successfully.
