Hal Leonard's The Music of Teaching by Kreader Skalinder focuses on developing a teacher’s ability to trust both the student’s natural development and the learning process itself to guide developing students down a musical path.

Using stories from her 46-year teaching career plus research from the fields of education and psychology, Kreader Skalinder explores the ways teaching has evolved from the authoritative style of the 1950’s to the collaborative design better suited to the students in today's digital world. She also examines the ways independent teachers, free from the outside constraints often imposed on public school educators, can point the way toward educational methods that keep students' individual learning styles and natural rate of progress as a primary focus, and guide them toward independent learning and success. 

The Music of Teaching (HL00157332) retails for $19.99.
