Written for pre-service teachers who will be teaching music to students in Kindergarten through grade 6, this market-leading textbook provides the fundamentals of music education in an accessible and clear manner by providing both a thorough overview of the basic elements of music and a clear sequence of instructional steps that allows readers to participate in the same learning process they will later use as teachers. Packaged with an audio CD for use with the lessons, the text continues to be written in such a way that, once students leave the college classroom, they can feel confident in using the text package as a readily available resource and handbook for teaching their own students the fundamentals of music.
