Compassionate Music Teaching: A Framework for Motivation and

Compassionate Music Teaching provides a framework for music teaching in the 21st century by outlining qualities, skills, and approaches to meet the needs of a unique and increasingly diverse generation of students. The text focuses on how six qualities of compassion (trust, empathy, patience, inclusion, community, and authentic connection) have made an impact in human lives, and how these qualities might relate to the practices of caring and committed music teachers. This book bridges the worlds of research and practice, discussing cutting-edge topics while also offering practical strategies that can be used immediately in music studios and classrooms. Each chapter is addressed from multiple perspectives, including: research in music, education, psychology, sociology, and related fields; insights from various students and teachers across the United States; and an in-depth study of five music teachers who represent a broad range of genres, student ages, and pedagogical approaches. The book is dedicated to exploring those conditions that help students not only to learn, but also to grow, thrive, and freely express—and become compassionate musicians, teachers, performers, and people as well.

Teaching Music in Higher Education

Teaching Music in Higher

Graduate students already know what to teach when they begin teaching undergraduates, but often find they lack the knowledge of how to teach it. Teaching Music in Higher Education is the only book designed specifically to help graduate students in music teach undergraduates (both music- and non-music majors).

Features *Materials for organizing a course, including a course preparation guide with sample syllabi, an outline of a typical course sequence for a music major, sample performance assessment tools, and sample forms for student midterms and final evaluations *Vignettes written by undergraduate music majors and...
