Publisher's Description

Music Across the Senses provides music educators with practical ideas for facilitating student music listening skill development. Written both for in-service and pre-service music educators, the book shows how to facilitate PK-12 students' listening skills using multisensory means in general music and performance ensemble classes.

As a whole, Music Across the Senses helps teachers enable students to learn how to devise independent strategies for listening that they can employ and enjoy both now and throughout their lives.

Editorial Reviews


"Superbly researched, and generous with examples, this book makes it abundantly clear that listening in music can be captured, developed, made visible and reflected on creatively and musically. And in addition to the inspirational way in which author Jody Kerchner illustrates the importance of listening, this book illustratively presents the role of the body, of play, of gesture, and embodied representations in developing creative musical listening." --Pamela Burnard, Reader in Education, University of Cambridge


"This is an unusual book in the most positive sense. Kerchner illustrates her pedagogical ideas through detailed descriptions of her research, the resultant multisensory teaching strategies for the classroom, lesson plans, and videos of her research and teaching with children." --Rob E. Dunn, Brigham Young University


"[A] sound pedagogical approach with much wisdom for those of us who use our ears for a living and who wish to inspire our students to use thiers in the choral arts." -- Choral Journal
