Here is a great way to see how the First Steps in Music curriculum and activities are implemented in two general music classes with 6 year olds.

On this DVD, you will observe master teacher Lillie Feierabend working with a group of children as she demonstrates all eight parts of the First Steps in Music curriculum. She also demonstrates a wide variety of activities and teaching techniques.

Also on this DVD is a bonus voice-over track where John and Lillie Feierabend guide you through the lessons, offering their insights into the who, what, when, where, and why of what you are seeing.

As a final piece, this terrific DVD includes an interview with Dr. Feierabend discussing the philosophy and pedagogy of the First Steps in Music method.
