Teaching Strings in Today s Classroom Book Excerpt:

Teaching Strings in Today’s Classroom: A Guide for Group Instruction assists music education students, in-service teachers, and performers to realize their goals of becoming effective string educators. It introduces readers to the school orchestra environment, presents the foundational concepts needed to teach strings, and provides opportunities for the reader to apply this information. The author describes how becoming an effective string teacher requires three things of equal importance: content knowledge, performance skills, and opportunities to apply the content knowledge and performance skills in a teaching situation. In two parts, the text addresses the unique context that is teaching strings, a practice with its own objectives and related teaching strategies. Part I (Foundations of Teaching and Learning String Instruments) first presents an overview of the string teaching environment, encouraging the reader to consider how context impacts teaching, followed by practical discussions of instrument sizing and position, chapters on the development of each hand, and instruction for best practices concerning tone production, articulation, and bowing guidelines. Part II (Understanding Fingerings) provides clear guidance for understanding basic finger patterns, positions, and the creation of logical fingerings. String fingerings are abstract and thus difficult to negotiate without years of playing experience—these chapters (and their corresponding interactive online tutorials) distill the content knowledge required to understand string fingerings in a way that non-string players can understand and use. Teaching Strings in Today’s Classroom contains pedagogical information, performance activities, and an online virtual teaching environment with twelve interactive tutorials, three for each of the four string instruments.

The Oxford Handbook of Preservice Music Teacher Education in the United States Book Excerpt:

The Oxford Handbook of Preservice Music Teacher Education in the United States identifies the critical need for change in Pre-K-12 music education. Collectively, the handbook's 56 contributors argue that music education benefits all students only if educators actively work to broaden diversity in the profession and consistently include diverse learning strategies, experiences, and perspectives in the classroom. In this handbook, contributors encourage music teachers, researchers, policy makers, and music teacher educators to take up that challenge. Throughout the handbook, contributors provide a look at ways music teacher educators prepare teachers to enter the music education profession and offer suggestions for ways in which new teachers can advocate for and adapt to changes in contemporary school settings. Building upon students' available resources, contributors use research-based approaches to identify the ways in which educational methods and practices must transform in order to successfully challenge existing music education boundaries.

Through practical explanation of body mechanics, ergonomics, and the performance-related health problems and risk factors unique to musicianship, she gives music educators the tools they need to first practice healthy posture, body mechanics, environmental safety, and ergonomics, and then to introduce these same practices to their students. Thoroughly illustrated with 125 photographs, this book is a key resource for preservice and inservice teachers of middle school and high school band, orchestra, choir and general music.

From the Stage to the Studio Book Excerpt:

"The fact is, you will teach." from the Foreword by Stephen Clapp, Dean Emeritus, The Julliard School. Whether serving on the faculty at a university, maintaining a class of private students, or fulfilling an invitation as guest artist in a master class series, virtually all musicians will teach during their careers. From the Stage to the Studio speaks directly to the performing musician, highlighting the significant advantages of becoming distinguished both as a performer and a pedagogue. Drawing on over sixty years of combined experience, authors Cornelia Watkins and Laurie Scott provide the guidance and information necessary for any musician to translate his or her individual approach into productive and rewarding teacher-student interactions. Premised on the synergistic relationship between teaching and performing, this book provides a structure for clarifying the essential elements of musical artistry, and connects them to such tangible situations as setting up a studio, teaching a master class, interviewing for a job, judging competitions, and recruiting students. From the Stage to the Studio serves as an essential resource for university studio faculty, music pedagogy teachers, college music majors, and professionals looking to add effective teaching to their artistic repertoire.

The Journey from Music Student to Teacher Book Excerpt:

The Journey from Music Student to Teacher: A Professional Approach, Second Edition helps prospective educators transition from music student to professional music teacher. This textbook acknowledges that students must first reconcile their assumptions about learning and teaching before they can make thoughtful, informed decisions about their own professional education. Building upon personal experience is essential to an enhanced approach to the profession, and the topics and activities presented here guide readers to think not as students but as professionals, addressing the primary stages of teacher development. In three parts—Discovery of Self, Discovery of Teaching, and Discovery of Student Learning—the authors connect readers to theoretical foundations and the processes of becoming an insider to the profession. This updated Second Edition includes: Integration of the 2014 National Core Arts Standards Discussion of NAfMEs Model Cornerstone Assessments Explorations of issues of equity, access, and inclusion for marginalized populations and new examples of culturally responsive pedagogy Added coverage of innovative practices including popular music, technology for autonomous music-making, songwriting, and composition Streamlined discussion of learning theory, focusing on the basic foundations of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism The accompanying companion website at www.routledge.com/cw/raiber provides revised and updated "Connecting to the Profession" features that help enhance students’ understanding of the ideas presented in the text, links to videos of K-12 music teaching and interviews with teachers, and additional resources for instructors. Featuring networking activities to aid in self-reflection, a glossary of terms, and a wealth of online resources and tools, The Journey from Music Student to Teacher is the culmination of more than 25 years of experience in secondary music classrooms, providing a framework for establishing professional role identity among preservice music educators during their introduction to the field.
