Music education that fosters listening
■ Author: Rheinhild Brass / Translation: Miharu Koga Junko Kanda
■ Publisher name: Audi Opede Publishing

【Product introduction】
Rheinhild Brass is a music instructor at the Waldorf Institute of Education in Witten. She has long been involved in constructive work at the Wiederschuele-Wattenscheid, a free Waldorf school co-founded in 1979, fostering an unconventional initiative for music education in grades 1-8. .. At its core are movement, improvisation, and a wide variety of newly developed instruments. The "listening path" found and walked there is now beginning to resonate with the first comprehensive depiction. Throughout the 8th grade, the way of being according to children is developed from practice and reflected in intensive consideration. -I hope that this book will encourage those who take listening seriously, follow the many listening paths depicted here while working with children, and make many new discoveries themselves. ..
