It’s time to get back to my first love at Melodysoup and Melodysoup LOVES books!These book lists
are intended as a resource as you seek to stock your music classroom library. Share the link to a list you like with your librarian or principal. Or print one out and put it in your purse so you’ll have it the next time you are at a book store. Include one of the lists in your yearly supply request, or give a copy of the list to your PTA. On the Book List for Music Teachers Page
you can either download the PDF, OR if you are looking for an individual title, you can click on the picture and it will take you directly to the book of your choice on Amazon.com.
To quote from his website,
“Dr. John Feierabend is considered one of the leading authorities on music and movement development in early childhood. He is a Professor of Music and the Director of the Music Education Division at The Hartt School of the University of Hartford and is a past President of the Organization of American Kodály Educators. Dr. Feierabend makes frequent presentations both in the United States and abroad and is the author of over 70 publications.”
If you are a music teacher, the opportunity to attend a workshop or lecture by Dr. Feieraband is one that I hope you’ll take advantage of. His website also has a variety of useful resources. I hope that you will check it out! FeierabendMusic.org
I haven’t had as much time as I would like to study the methods he has developed, so I am in no way claiming to be an expert in his work. However, I have attended a couple of quick classes at TMEA and I have been able to incorporate several of his children’s books into my teaching because they are grounded in American folk music.
