LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Wednesday, October 26, 2011
Alfred Music Publishing, the world leader in educational print music publishing since 1922, is proud to announce the release of Teaching Music Across the Curriculum, an innovative teaching tool that offers creative, fun, and ready-to-teach lesson plans that build and increase students’ musical skills.

Authors Valeaira Luppens and Greg Foreman use creative teaching techniques in Teaching Music Across the Curriculum that connect students to materials, concepts, vocabulary, and ideas they’re studying in their classrooms. The curriculum helps music educators to create musical meaning while simultaneously reinforcing and supporting other curricula, such as Communication, Art, Math, History, Social Studies, and Science. Through the various lessons and activities in the book, students are provided with opportunities to create, analyze, and perform music in enjoyable and challenging ways.

Reproducible student pages are included – making lessons a snap to prepare – which actively engage students and allow for easy assessment. A foreword from the authors is included, explaining to educators the various benefits and features of Teaching Music Across the Curriculum. Helpful note pages are also included in the back of the book to keep records for future use.

As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving the environment, this songbook is printed on 100% recycled paper stock.

Teaching Music Across the Curriculum (00-37478) is now available for $26.99 at music retail stores and at alfred.com/classroom.
