For White Folks Who Teach (Music) in the Hood
Karvelis, Noah J.
General Music Today, v31 n1 p5-9 Oct 2017
In this article, I aim to critically analyze theories contained within Dr. Christopher Emdin's newest book "For White Folks Who Teach in the Hood (and the Rest of Ya'll Too!)" in the context of the music classroom. To begin, I summarize Christopher Emdin's theories of both "reality" and "pentecostal" pedagogy and then place both pedagogical approaches within the context of the music classroom. I then offer direct implications for the classroom in response to these theories as well as strategies and techniques for using Emdin's philosophy in an effective, culturally responsive manner.
