New book on good teaching practices in music education

Next September the book Escuelas musicales. Buenas prácticas docentes en centros de Primaria y Secundaria que educan a través de la música will be released. It contains part of the research developed by the Impactmus project, which sought to analyse professional practices in primary and secondary music classrooms from Spanish schools in accordance with relevant music education models and in relation to current social needs.

The book contains seven case studies that can be considered as different examples of “good teaching practices” in music education. All of them are also valuable in that they can contribute to responding to the new educational, social, economic and cultural demands of our time.

The book will be published by Octaedro and has been edited by José Luis Aróstegui Plaza, Gabriel Rusinek Milner and Antonio Fernández-Jiménez. It includes contributions from researchers from several Spanish universities, as well as from foreign universities.
