Incorporating technology in music classrooms can take the mystery out of improvisation. What music technology does is establish a strong foundation for chord, scale, phrase, ear training, and listening exercises, creating a solid backdrop for student expression. As author and educator Mike Fein shows, technology is a valuable tool that can be used effectively to supplement student practice time while also developing the skills necessary to become a proficient improviser. Complete with notated exercises, accompaniment tracks, and listening resources, this book gives teachers methods to set their students free to make mistakes and to develop their own ear for improvisation at their own pace. Broken down into significant areas of music technology, each chapter focuses on developing a new skill and guides readers to tangible outcomes with the assistance of hands-on activities that can be immediately implemented into the classroom. In addition to these hands-on activities, each chapter provides the reader with an "iPad Connection" to various iOS applications, which allows teachers and students another, albeit significantly less expensive, medium through which to learn, share, and create art. This book will appeal to music educators of students in grades K-12. It will serve collegiate music education courses secondarily, and will also appeal to those music educators who work with improvisation and technology.

"Comprehensive, balanced, and up to date, this thoroughly revised second edition of Foundations of Music Education focuses on the fundamental issues that will affect the teaching and learning of music in the coming years. Featuring approximately forty percent new material and a ten-percent expansion, this edition incorporates the many events and trends of the last decade that have affected music education and education in general." "Written by three distinguished music educators, this carefully organized text explores the relationship between theory and practice in music teaching. From a comprehensive survey of the history, philosophy, and functions of music education to its social, psychological, and pedagogical aspects, the book presents the ideas that affect the teaching of music in any setting. The authors clearly explain the distinguishing features of leading schools of thought, interpret research findings, and critically examine the assumptions that underlie various approaches to curriculum and instruction." "Unique to this book are chapters that link current ideas in psychology, sociology, and social psychology to music education. How do social class, race, and other characteristics influence the responses of students to different types of music? How do cognitive and behavioral psychologists differ in their views of learning? In what ways do small-group interactions in the classroom affect the emergence of musical talent? These and many other issues are addressed here." "Indeed, Foundations of Music Education is notable for the attention it pays to trends in related fields of learning and the care with which such information is applied to contemporary music education. Included among its topics are attitude formation, creativity, cognitive processing, and behavioral techniques." "More practical topics are also given equal coverage: curriculum development, cultural pluralism, music for handicapped children, program evaluation, innovative approaches in assessment, accountability, critical thinking, computer-based instruction, and technology in music. A chapter on research in music education presents an analysis of a published article on practice conditions and performance accuracy, placing the basics of the scientific method at the student's disposal. The final chapter on teaching as a profession examines the emerging agenda for music educators in the 1990s and beyond. Each chapter ends with a concise summary, several study and discussion questions for class and individual use, suggested class activities for putting theory into practice, suggested additional readings, and complete bibliographic references." "Foundations of Music Education has long been regarded as the classic text in foundations courses, providing both a solid grounding in the development of music education and a forward look at the tools educators will need to master if music is to remain an essential part of American education. This newly revised edition will set the standard for music teaching in the decades to come."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Music has been a vital part of leisure activity across time and cultures. Contemporary commodification, commercialization, and consumerism, however, have created a chasm between conceptualizations of music making and numerous realities in our world. From a broad range of perspectives and approaches, this handbook explores avocational involvement with music as an integral part of the human condition. The chapters in The Oxford Handbook of Music Making and Leisure present myriad ways for reconsidering and refocusing attention back on the rich, exciting, and emotionally charged ways in which people of all ages make time for making music. The contexts discussed are broadly Western, including an eclectic variety of voices from scholars across fields and disciplines, framing complex and multifaceted phenomena that may be helpfully, enlighteningly, and perhaps provocatively framed as music making and leisure. This volume may be viewed as an attempt to reclaim music making and leisure as a serious concern for, amongst others, policy makers, scholars, and educators who perhaps risk eliding some or even most of the ways in which music - a vital part of human existence - is integrated into the everyday lives of people. As such, this handbook looks beyond the obvious, asking readers to consider anew, "What might we see when we think of music making as leisure?"
