Music from the Trenches
Mary Jane Wilkie, author
Cast as a memoir, this book offers Ms. Wilkie's experiences as a music educator, sharing insights into the music-learning process. It describes the many benefits of music-making and performing, and will encourage parents to reconsider the family's engagement with music. It is not "prescriptive," i.e., does not present a problem + solution, but rather the goal is to help parents understand the music-learning process, enabling them to make the best decisions on their own.
