Culturally relevant music can drive reform in urban education. Teaching Music in the Urban Classroom, Volume 1: A Guide to Survival, Success, and Reform opens a national-level conversation aimed at making that goal a reality. This first of two volumes addresses cultural responsivity, teaching strategies, and alternative teaching models. Contributors, who include classroom music teachers, inner city arts administrators, well-known academics, and policy-makers from across the United States and Canada, offer a full range of political, philosophical, and practical approaches to reaching kids in urban schools. These authors, whose voices are distinct and yet united, guide music educators at every level, motivating them to challenge tired assumptions, reconsider the issues, and transform their classrooms and their students.
