Overview

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book.

Designed for prospective teachers without extensive music backgrounds, Music Fundaments, Methods and Materials for the Elementary Classroom Teacher, 5th Edition, provides 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. The text gives a proper overview to the basic elements of music, and a clear sequence of instructional steps in order to teach music to children in elementary school. This market-leading textbook can also be used as a major resource for elementary general music education specialists in the classroom. 

 

Pre-service and practicing teachers will appreciate the range of content covered in this edition including: Teaching the elements of music to children (theory, rhythm, melody, timbre, expressive elements, form, texture, and harmony); Developing music skills (voice instruction, musical instruments, listening activities, and movement); and Organizing musical experiences (lesson planning, and integrating music with other subjects).

 

Noteworthy enhancements made to the Fifth Edition include: expanded ideas on integrating music across the curriculum to enhance students’ knowledge of language arts, social studies, math and science; icons that represent curricular areas facilitate cross-curricular connections to music; references to the National Standards for Arts Education with direct applications to musical learning; activities on beginning drumming; new helpful guidelines on maintaining vocal health; and more tools and suggestions for the assessment of concepts learned.
