Music educators and practicing musicians have failed to benefit as much as they could from the past two decades of music psychology research. In this volume, Parncutt and McPherson propose to improve the situation by describing new approaches, informed by recent psychological research, to teaching music, learning music, and making music at all educational levels. Each chapter represents the collaboration between a music psychologist and a music educator. The articles begin by outlining music-psychological issues that are probably unfamiliar to musicians and music educators. Then, they propose teaching strategies and materials inspired by the psychologists' findings. The volume's twenty-one articles cover the broad issues of "the developing musician", "subskills of musical performance", and "instruments and ensembles".

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a finely produced publication and a tribute to the expertise and, I should think, perseverance of its two editors. Its target audience of music educators and music psychologists will be well pleased and will find much to cite here. * British Journal of Music Education *
... the breadth of [the authors'] enthusiasms and knowledge is infectious and stimulating. * British Journal of Music Education *
