Summary

"Introduction to Music Education, 3/E provides a comprehensive, straightforward overview of the field, including its opportunities and its challenges. As the title implies, the text is written for a general music education course that precedes methods courses in which prospective teachers learn techniques for teaching various aspects of music. In addition to Hoffer's uncluttered discussions of the nature of teaching, teachers, and music, useful chapter components such as questions for discussion and projects are included."--BOOK JACKET.
