How might we teach in a way that uplifts both the children and ourselves? How do we give a shape and design to our classes that refreshes and energizes? How might we create a musical flow and make our classes truly sing? Revealing the thinking behind his long teaching career working with both children and adults of all ages, internationally renowned music educator Doug Goodkin guides us to making music classes—and any classes—more memorable, magical and musical. The ideas presented here will inspire all teachers to teach with more playfulness, passion and purpose.


"Doug Goodkin's Teach Lite It's Music is the single most comprehensive and helpful book I have found that applies educational philosophy, teaching and management practices to the classroom setting. It should be required reading for every educator, music teacher and administrator!"  —Dr. Kofi Gbolonyo
