Mixon provides a wealth of practical information for instrumental music teachers working in the field, and is of particular interest to those of us teaching in 'less than ideal' conditions. The book addresses the reality of instrumental music education in today's schools, and offers suggestions and ideas that will be useful to both inexperienced and veteran teachers. It should be assigned reading for every pre-service teacher. This book is a long overdue addition to the music educator's library. (Edward J. O'Rourke, instrumental music teacher, Syracuse City Schools)
This text provides relevant real world solutions to teaching all instrumental music students regardless of the school demographics. Mr. Mixon modifies research-based ideas to help you start, build, and maintain a solid and accountable program. All instrumental music teachers need to have this book!

Guiding teachers through the complexities of today's classroom realities, Mixon shares proven instructional strategies to produce music programs of merit, particularly in urban settings.
