A timely update! -- Bill Larson, music supervisor, Great Falls,
Montana (ret.), former president, NW Division, MENC and Lowell
Dr. Doerksen's guide is an invaluable resource for administrators and music supervisors. The practical suggestions and specific procedures directed to the teachers of musical performance will be gratefully welcomed by school districts and university settings. -- Dr. Dee Hansen, associate professor, Baker University and president, Kansas Music Educators Association
This update offers a straightforward approach to the evaluation of music ensemble instructors. Doerksen provides a system and suggests criteria that will help future and practicing educators assess their own teaching and gives administrators the tools necessary to conduct meaningful reviews of faculty working with performing ensembles. It is good to have this back in print. -- Frank Heuser, associate professor of music education, UCLA
Doerksen's handbook provides a detailed road map for raising the district's standard of music performance. * Education Review *
Very valuable and very practical. I've been using this evaluation system for quite some time. It's been highly successful in stimulating the progress of good and average teachers. It's the most practical guide to music teacher evaluation that exists and the best one that I am aware of. -- Karl Raschkes, supervisor of music, Salem-Keizer School District (OR)
