The music teacher constructs an environment where all children are welcomed, they know what is expected of them, they are encouraged to achieve, and they know someone cares about their existence. That's "the Heart." The teacher also creates a learning climate of rigor, challenges and new awareness. That's "the Art." Calling on more than 26 years of experience Patricia Bourne explores, in accessible and sincere fashion, this pairing of the practical and philosophical in K-6 general music. Go inside the classroom to discover the who (students) and what (curriculum and methodology) of music education, along with concrete suggestions for how to navigate the landscape once you're "in." The real-world considerations of classroom management and additional responsibilities, such as ensembles and the performance expectations that come with them, are addressed in detail, as is the subject of finding and succeeding in "the" position.
