"The spirit of this book is notable--alongside its well-informed, practical, and scholarly approach. Blair and McCord have gathered together scholars, researchers, and teachers who share a commitment to human capability, and who respect the marvelously variegated ways that persons engage in music. In these pages, the voices of students are celebrated; the caring and ingenious work of teachers is upheld; the disciplined and sustained contributions of researchers are made available. A wise, affirming, and encouraging book." --Janet R. Barrett, Marilyn Pflederer Zimmerman Scholar and Professor of Music Education, University of Illinois "I applaud the editors and authors for their passion, their knowledge, and their generosity. This book will be a valuable resource for teachers, offering yet more ideas to ponder and strategies to implement in their pursuit of bringing quality music experiences to all children of the world." --Judith Jellison, Mary D. Bold Regents Professor of Music in the Sarah and Ernest Butler School of Music at the University of Texas at Austin
