Summary
    Introduction and Practical Guide to Music Education provides students with comprehensive yet foundational knowledge of the music education profession. The book contains researched best practices for teaching music and guides readers through practical exercises to help them discover their own unique teaching style and approach.

    The text begins with a chapter that asks readers why they are considering a career in music education and also reveals the qualities of an effective music teacher. Later chapters provide students with a brief history of music education in the United States, introductions to educational psychology, sociology, and child development, practical advice for developing sound and successful lesson plans, strategies for teaching different types of students, tips for job interviews, and more. Each chapter includes references and discussion questions, and select chapters also feature a list of recommended readings for further exploration and independent learning.

    With emphasis on research and practical application, Introduction and Practical Guide to Music Education is a supportive and valuable guide for any student interested in a career in music education. Accessible and complete, the text is ideal for music seminars, music profession survey courses, and introductory music education courses.

    Laura M. Dornberger serves on the music education faculty at the State University of New York at Fredonia where she teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in elementary general music, child development, and music education philosophy and assessment. She has taught PK-12th grade general/vocal music, directed children's choirs, performed professionally as a soprano, and taught private voice and piano lessons. She has led professional development workshops for teachers in Cork, Ireland. She serves as a scorer for the New York State Teacher Certification Examinations, and she is a guest speaker and clinician on effective interviewing techniques.
    Katherine M. Levy, Ph.D. , is head of the music education area at the State University of New York at Fredonia. She earned her master’s and doctorate degrees in music education from the University of Iowa. She has experience teaching beginning, middle, and high school instrumental music in Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin and early childhood music in Iowa and Maryland. Dr. Levy is the founding music director of two New Horizons Band programs in which university students and music teachers work with amateur musicians aged 50 and older in music lessons, ensembles, and concert bands.
