Whole Music

"Whole Music" offers a fervent message to elementary teachers - that music can be integrated into their classrooms and that it can be done applying the principles of whole language. Music is fertile ground for creating classroom activities based on the individual whole child, home, community, and other environmental and cultural influences. And music is best explored using the child's whole body rather than just eyes, ears, and writing hand. Blackburn writes this book from a unique position as a musician with a profound interest in the psycholinguistics of reading. Her goal is to propose whole music as an instrument to transform music instruction in the way that whole language has transformed other subject areas. Along with descriptions of whole music, her book includes examples and practical activities. Many books have been designed as compendiums of activities and exhaustive collections of children's songs and games. "Whole Music," instead, introduces a point of view. The illustrative materials are intended as examples of the whole music process: patterns from which teachers may in turn create their own songs and activities. There is something in this book to guide nearly every teacher in exploring music at some level and in some context. For regular classroom teachers, these adventures may be used as focused lessons, as enrichment for other subject area units or as "fillers" for the nightmare times when the lesson plan runs out. For music educators, the materials may be used individually to examine specific skills or as a complete developmental sequence and curriculum outline, in the order presented in the text.
