Description

 How might we teach in a way that uplifts both the children and ourselves? How do we give a shape and design to our classes that refreshes and energizes? How might we create a musical flow and make our classes truly sing?

Doug Goodkin reveals the thinking behind his long teacher career of with both children and adults of all ages. As an internationally renowned music educator, he guides us to making music classes - any classes - more memorial, magical and musical. From the nitty-gritty details of "The Neat Shoe Club" to the grand sweep of Alfred North Whitehead's Three Stages of Mental Growth, this book offers both pedagogical reflection and practical ideas for the music classroom and beyond. The ideas presented here will inspire all teachers to teach with more playfulness, passion and purpose.

As the author says, "It's a summary of the pedagogical frameworks of my last 45 years teaching kids at The San Francisco School. The philosophical background is lightened by three chapters of practical suggestions graphically illustrated by the same artist who did James Hardings' "From Wibbleton to Wobbleton." While considering how to teach music more musically is at the core of the book, I took care to make the ideas relevant to teaching in any subject. It's most similiar to my "ABC's of Education" book, but with many more practical details that can help new and experienced teachers alike create a more satisfying flow and structure to their classes?
