This book has been written for students training to teach music in the secondary school. It aims to develop open and reflective practitioners who will engage critically in the cycle of planning and acting in the music classroom. It also encourages student teachers to develop their own philosophy of music so that they can rationalize their own work and the place of music in the curriculum. One of the main premises of the book is that music needs to be taught musically. The book is organized into four sections: The philosophy of teaching and learning in music The statutory curriculum and examination courses The practice of teaching and learning in music Wider issues beyond the classroom In each section, the authors include tasks, activities and reflections to help student teachers to integrate the theory and practice of music education.
