Music Advocacy: Moving From Survival to Vision
Since the launching of Sputnik by the USSR and financial crises such as Proposition 13 in California in the last quarter of the 20th century, music programs have become a primary target for elimination. This book is a summary of the practice of music advocacy. It is a compilation of research and experience gained from 30 years experience by one of the nation's most successful advocates for music education. It provides the music educator, administrator, school board member, and community advocate with step-by-step procedures for saving and building school music programs.
