Disability and Accessibility in the Music Classroom: A Teacher's Guide (Hardcover)
Disability and Accessibility in the Music Classroom provides college music history instructors with a concise guide on how to create an accessible and inclusive classroom environment.
In addition to providing a concise overview of disability studies, highlighting definitions, theories, and national and international policies related to disability, this book offers practical applications for implementing accessibility measures in the music history classroom. The latter half of this text provides case studies of well-known disabled composers and musicians from the Western Art Music canon from the Middle Ages to the Twentieth Century as well as popular music genres, such as the blues, jazz, R&B, pop, country, and hip hop. These examples provide opportunities to integrate discussions of disability into a standard music history curriculum.
