Rita Klinger’s paperback book is a resource for young and experienced music teachers. The purpose of the book is to provide music teachers with a foundation for developing music lesson planning skills.
Although this book provides several lessons, it isn’t the intent to provide lesson plans but rather to help teachers gain an understanding of how to plan lessons of their own. Armed with only your creativity, Klinger will provide you with a framework on which to build. The framework isn’t about limiting your creativity, but rather a step-by-step approach toward constructing an better lesson with thoughts toward long-term goals, sequence and skill development. Klinger’s hope is that these foundational ideas will help the Kodály specialist and the general music educator to plan more effectively, and with greater foresight.
