G-9418 Music Education and Social Emotional Learning


G-9418      Music Education and Social Emotional Learning, The Heart of Teaching Music – by Scott N. Edgar, softcover

Music educators are in a prime position to help students become socially and emotionally competent while at the same time develop excellent musicianship. For every child to be successful in the music classroom, teachers need to be aware of the whole student. How do music educators create success when students every day struggle with social awareness, bullying, communication, problem solving, and other challenges? This pioneering book by Scott Edgar addresses how music educators can utilize Social Emotional Learning (SEL) to maximize learning in the choral, instrumental, and general music classroom at all levels, and at the same time support a student’s social and emotional growth. Foreword by Tim Lautzenheiser.
