This is to introduce "One Voice: Music and Stories in the Classroom,"
prepared by Barbara Britsch and Amy Dennison-Tansey, with illustrations
by Melanie Findling. It was published in 1995 by Teacher Ideas Press, a
divison of Libraries Unlimited, Inc. P.O. Box 6633, Englewood, CO 80155-6633
(Phone: 1-800-237-6124). The ISBN is 1-56308-049-4.

This 175-pp. book is an excellent resource for classroom teachers (not
just music specialists) who want to make music and storytelling a
more integral part of their students' lives. It is intended "to offer
teachers a practical and theoretical classroom guide to the many ways music
and stories may be explored . . . to give students a better understanding
of each art form separately and of their power together."

Barbara (drama/literature), Amy (music) and Melanie (art) are all
Teaching Artists for Arts Unlimited, one of 18 aesthetic education institutes
that began at Lincoln Center, NY, in 1975. This book is a distillation of
their extensive experience in the classroom.
