The change needed in urban music education not only relates to the idea that music should be at the center of the curriculum; rather, it is that culturally relevant music should be a creative force at the center of reform in urban education. Teaching Music in the Urban Classroom: A Guide to Survival, Success, and Reform is the start of a national-level conversation aimed at making that goal a reality. Its diverse authors range from classroom music teachers to inner city arts administrators to well-known academics and policy-makers from across the United States and Canada.

This carefully constructed volume is unique... Recommended. CHOICE Contributors discuss motivation, choral rehearsals, building an instrumental music program, string chorales, the impact of music education, challenges in teaching, English-language learners, using the music of all cultures, and white teachers working with students of color.
