Editorial Reviews

Review


"Seldom does one find a research book that you 'can't put down.' Scholarly yet conversational, this book tells us much about the children we teach. It will surely impact on what I teach and how I present my music methods courses."--Sr. Rita Schweitzer, Mount Mary College

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By E. Seligmann on March 6, 2007
Format: Paperback
I read this book for a music education class. The book is divided into three sections. The first section describes scenes the author witnessed in various schools; the second section describes one-on-one interviews with children about music; the third section makes recommendations for music teachers based on her ethnographic observations of children. The third section has some compelling ideas in it, and the first two sections support her ideas there. However, if I hadn't been required to read it, I wouldn't have gotten through the first two sections in order to benefit from the third.

I agree with an earlier review - check it out from library rather than investing in the book yourself.

Format: Paperback
Patricia's approach with children is sensitive and perceptive. I found this book personally helpful with children in my studio. Ms. Campbell's approach encouraged me to ask my students questions and I was pleasantly surprised by their honest and passionate ideas about music. I changed my program in response to their ideas. I appreciated that Patricia interviewed students of different abilities not just elite performers. The main idea is that they all had a meaningful connection to their music-making activities.

Format: Paperback
I enjoyed this discussion of children's natural bent for improvisation. However, this isn't the kind of book you refer back to a lot later on. I would suggest getting it through your local University library.

By the way, if you are a University librarian and your school has a music education department, you should definitely get this book!
