    Classroom Management in the Music Room

    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.
    • Grading in music classes: Its relationship to Behavior and to Improved Performance
    • Looking at the Music Performance Class as a Community
    • MANAGEMENT through MUSIC: What could be better?
