Poor Schools, Great Music: Building Great Music Programs in Schools with Student Poverty 

"Children who live in poverty face challenges and circumstances that impede their understanding and learning. They need music. They need to be a part of something great. Admittedly, poverty may hinder the educational process; however, it neither sentences children to lives of failure nor cancels out opportunities to succeed. I hope this book will open your eyes to the importance of music in schools with children from low-income homes and elevate respect and the skills of teachers at high-poverty schools. Moreover, my objective is to supply additional tools, which will contribute to the stability and quality of teachers who serve our most fragile students."
