This book reviews the theories of Jaques-Dalcroze, Kodaly, Orff and others, and then suggests how teachers can use a synthesis of these to create an exciting program of music education for their students. It covers the planning, implementation and evaluation of programs and the reporting process. More than half the book details hundreds of practical music ideas designed for use by both specialist and non-specialist teachers.

Graeme Askew was a music consultant with the Victorian Ministry of Education and has lectured in music education for eight years to trainee teachers at La Trobe University and at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Coburg. 

The Education Australia series editors, P.E. Langford and J.V. D'Cruz, are senior lecturers in the School of Education at La Trobe University.
