Sale Price $29.95


David Newell's new text book, Classroom Management in the Music Room: Pin-Drop Quiet Classes and Rehearsals, is a resource vital to any productive music classroom. Designed with simplicity in mind – simple to teach, simple to learn, and simple to administer – this book promotes student-centered self-discipline and turns classroom management into creating music.

This management program is the Epitome of Simplicity: Simple to Teach, Simple to Learn, and Simple to Administer.

Instead of TEACHER-centered discipline and control, this book promotes STUDENT-centered SELF-discipline and SELF-control.

The responsibility for behavior in this program is precisely where it belongs -- squarely on the shoulders of the students.

Yelling is counter-productive. Things said softly register most loudly on the student brain. The teacher sets the climate in the classroom.

It's not the SEVERITY of a consequence that deters poor behavior: It's the CERTAINTY of it! The stated consequence MUST happen!

The words "please" and "thank you" should never be used in a management situation. Good manners? -- Yes! Politely asking students to behave? -- No!

Reward Programs: The good and the not-so-good.

Competition in Performing Ensembles: The good and the not-so-good.

Proximity: Both a Management and a Musical tool.

Students' classroom time should be filled with MUSIC: "More Music -- Less Teacher Talk -- Everyday!"

Students deserve to have a musically satisfying experience every time they are in our classrooms.

MUSIC takes over the MANAGEMENT in the classroom.

Great music teaching comes with a built-in side benefit—great discipline.

A close look at the well-managed and well-planned, aesthetically-driven class or rehearsal.
