Explaining the why, what, and how of music teaching--for musicians who want to explore teaching as a career. "Musician and Teacher" blends traditional music education with innovative curricular and educational changes currently taking place in the field. Designed for the first course in music education, "Musician and Teacher" surveys the theoretical, philosophical, historical, social, and psychological foundations of teaching music and pays tribute to the local and global realms of music teaching and learning. At the same time, the book examines the developmental issues inherent in teaching music to children and adolescents along with the practicalities of motivating students and managing a classroom, providing the concrete application beginning educators need to successfully teach music to children in grades K-12.

Steven M. Demorest is a professor of Music Education at the University of Washington, where he conducts the Men's Glee Club and teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in choral music methods, research methods, and the psychology of music. In 2007, he received the Weston H. Noble award for outstanding contributions to choral music from Luther College, his alma mater. He is the author of Building Choral Excellence: Teaching Sight-Singing in the Choral Rehearsal, published by Oxford University Press, and the editor of a series of lectures by Weston Noble, Creating the Special World, published by GIA. Dr. Demorest's research interests include singing accuracy, sight-singing pedagogy, cross-cultural musical understanding, and the application of neuroimaging techniques to music research. His scholarly work has been published in Music Perception, NeuroImage, Journal of Research in Music Education, Music Educators Journal, and many other publications. A nationally known clinician, he has lectured at the American Choral Directors Association National Conference, The Music Educators National Conference, and at many state and regional ACDA and MENC conferences. Dr. Demorest holds a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, an M.M. in Choral Conducting from Westminster Choir College, and a B.A. in music from Luther College.
