Written by seven Atlanta-area a la cart teachers, this book will help you tailor your cart teaching to incorporate the most wonderful aspects of music classroom instruction.

With reproducible checklists and classroom diagrams and numerous fully-realized lesson plans, Music a la Cart has everything a teacher new to a cart could want and plenty to help inspire the veterans to think outside the cart.
