After a Foreword and Introduction, this book contains the following chapters: (1) Getting Students Started; (2) Maintaining Interest; (3) Gaining Support; (4) Maximizing Rehearsal Time; (5) Teaching for Diverse Learning Styles; (6) Including Exceptional Learners; (7) Introducing Notation; and (8) Improvisation and Composition. Includes an Afterword.
