So, you're a music teacher. Or perhaps you are an administrator hoping to start a music program at your school. Maybe your program is running, but you have no idea how to drive it, give it a long vision and productive implementation. Is it working? Is it doing what it should be doing? What is that goal in the first place? Or maybe you are a parent, wondering how to put your child or yourself on the path to music literacy. This book is for you.
Once a culture restores the priority of training its people in music, the task shifts to finding what type of instruction should be present in formal school education. In this book, you will find practical help in answer to this search and so much more:
- Music as a Language
- Four Principles for Music Literacy
- Common Pitfalls in Music Training
- Music Making vs. Music History
- The Teacher as Curriculum

I'm thankful to be able to recommend this well-written and timely handbook to everyone who falls into the categories above. Snag yourself a copy!
