Hear, Listen, Play! is a book for all music teachers who are curious about the worlds of ear-playing, informal learning, improvisation, and vernacular music. Starting with a discussion of how popular musicians learn in the informal realm, the book then applies many aspects of their learning practices to three main areas within music education. It first tackles one-to-one specialist instrumental lessons before turning to ensemble work such as band and orchestra and finally to the generalist or specialist classroom. The methods within each section have been systematically tried and tested in research projects spanning more than a decade, and delivered here in a book written in straightforward and direct language which teachers will quickly find applicable to their working lives. Vignettes from the research participants provide depth throughout the book, and give illustrations of how both teachers and learners have experienced the methods themselves. This book is not a prescription for one particular way of teaching or learning, and it does not aim to critique, replace or change the excellent practices that are already on-going in the diverse world of music education and pedagogy. Rather, it offers something which is likely to be new to many teachers, and which they can add in to the mix.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Building on her continuing research about how musicians learn, Lucy Green has fashioned a fascinating and powerfully rendered accounting of how music teachers might include playing by ear and improvisation instruction in a variety of class, studio and ensemble settings. Overall, the book is musically authentic, brilliantly conceived, and centered exactly where contemporary music teaching needs to be. * Peter R. Webster, Emeritus Professor, Northwestern University, Scholar in Residence, University of Southern California *
Pure logic: This book underscores the direct route that students can take from the musical sound itself to their approximation of it on piano, violin, clarinet, trumpet, and dozens of instruments. It enthusiastically reinforces ear-playing as a most natural pathway of learning music, and is made all the more credible by the research base that precedes this pedagogical practice. * Patricia Shehan Campbell, University of Washington *
This book is an invaluable extension of Greens earlier work on informal music pedagogy to individual instrument teaching and ensemble settings. The section on strategies for supporting ear-playing in the Musical Futures classroom is a much needed and valued addition. Anyone who teaches music in any setting should have this book on his or her bookshelf. * Dr. Ruth Wright, Assistant Dean Music Research, Western University Canada, Musical Futures Canada project leader. *
The integration of rigorous, mixed-methods research with practical, down-to-earth advice is freeiring. Lucy Green's work has already changed the landscape in many High School music lessons around the world; her HeLP approach now has potential to transform teaching and learning in instrumental lessons, ensemble coaching and classrooms. * Tim Cain, Edge Hill University *
