Abstract:

This classic text is essential reading for all music educators, including practising and intending teachers in schools and colleges, and instrumental teachers. It is re-released in this special edition with a new preface by the author exploring what has changed since the book was first published, where the field might go from here and why the themes and ideas are as relevant now as ever. Teaching Music Musically considers.

The nature of music itself, its value and metaphorical significance and the social context of musical understanding.

The interrelated layers of musical experience and fundamental principles for music educators, whatever the particular context of music teaching.

The demand for accountability and the development of state guidelines, national curricula or 'standards'

Valid and reliable assessment of students' work.

The relationship between institutionalised music education and the wider community.

Illustrated throughout with practical examples, Teaching Music Musically introduces important ideas about music education to all those curious about the role of music in our lives.
