Dr. John M. Feierabend's educational materials *ON SALE*

Dr. John Feierabend is considered one of the leading authorities on music and movement development. He is a Professor of Music and the Director of the Music Education Division at The Hartt School of the University of Hartford and is a past President of the Organization of American Kodály Educators as well as a NAfME Lowell Mason Fellow.

A music educator for over thirty years, he continues to be committed to collecting, preserving and teaching the diverse folk music of our country and using that folk music as a bridge to help children understand and enjoy classical music. His work is based on his belief that many generations can share common experiences such as traditional folk songs and rhymes, which can help develop a valuable but dwindling commodity - a sense of community. Dr. Feierabend’s research has resulted in two music curricula; First Steps in Music, a music and movement program for infants through elementary aged children and Conversational Solfege, a music literacy method for use in general music classes. Dr. Feierabend also helped develop the PBS children’s television series Lomax: The Hound of Music, which is based on his First Steps in Music curriculum.
