Pete Dale is an internationally renowned musician. He has taught music at numerous schools, Newcastle University and Oxford Brookes University, and is currently Senior Lecturer in Popular Music at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK.
'I recommend this refreshing approach to engaging students in the music classroom. The work is based on the personal experiences of the author, and written very much from the heart. Peter Dale has used DJ decks and urban music many times in various classrooms, but had not been involved in this kind of music as either a fan or a musician before. Therefore the book is an open invitation - not a closed shop for the already initiated - to any music teachers who wish to enliven their classrooms and engage even more of their learners.' - Professor Lucy Green, UCL Institute of Education, UK
