Boonshaft on Teaching Music

This week is the Texas Music Educators Association Convention, and many members of our staff are away from our store(s) manning the booths there. It’s so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of all that’s going on, once you get to San Antonio — there’s definitely something that appeals to everyone there. This year, one of our favorites is in Texas again: Dr. Peter Boonshaft.

One of Boonshaft’s latest endeavors is as the co-author of a new band method, Sound Innovations by Alfred Publishing Company. But it’s perhaps his Teaching books that resonate and speak volumes for most of us. There are three books in the series: Teaching Music with Passion, Teaching Music with Purpose, and Teaching Music with Promise.

Additionally, Boonshaft has melded the three inspirational music education books into a whole new edition, which is appropriate for ALL educators. It’s entitled Teaching Music with Passion, Purpose and Promise, and was released 2010.

Boonshaft will be presenting two sessions at TMEA, plus he’ll be in the Pender’s booth immediately following the sessions. Attend either or both of the sessions, and then stop by our booth to say HELLO!
