Book Description

An engaging integration of scholarship and storytelling, Reflections on Elizabeth A. H. Green’s Life and Career in Music Education details the life and career of a pioneering figure in the field of instrumental music teacher education, who was one of the first to document a curriculum for teaching conducting and stringed instruments. Featuring interviews with Green’s former students, faculty colleagues, and close friends, this account combines reflections and memories with Green’s conducting techniques and teachings. Reflections on Elizabeth A. H. Green’s Life and Career in Music Education uncovers pedagogical insights not available in the late educator’s published texts, focusing on ways to assist instructors in new and different ways to manage and direct large ensembles and build confidence in undergraduate music majors. Through the exploration of an extraordinary educator’s life, it offers new insights into both the history of music education and present-day pedagogy for string instruments and conducting.
