Tim Murphey offers a ton of non-traditional and creative ways for using music in the ESL classroom in this book. He divides the book into types of activity and indicates language level for each activity. Many of the ideas in this book could be used in the foreign language classroom, as well. I think this book should be in the personal library of any language teacher who wants to add some creativity and fun into his/her language class.

Format: Paperback
Not only is it good for adding creativity and fun to a class, it is an excellent resource book for those such as myself who are looking for ways to incorporate music and lyrics into language teaching. I think there definitely is a strong connection between music/songs and language learning which I do not see capitalized on too often in classrooms. Murphey makes this point in his work, which still stands today, well over a decade after he first published this book.
