Item No: 9061


by Ann Eisen and Lamar Robertson

An Inclusive Approach to Musical Literacy, revised edition.

This text was written to answer two questions about Kodaly philosophy:
1. What do I teach next?
2. How do I keep up with preparation & practice in the same lesson?

It suggests a possible sequence of teaching musical elements for K-6 divided into years, clarifies the terms preparation, presentation, and practice; contains song lists, a glossary, model lesson plans, a song index, and an appendix of rhymes and songs not readily accessible.
440 pp. Spiral Paperback
