America's largest ethnic populations. Across the Water: Teaching
Irish Music and Dance at Home and Abroad gives general music
teachers the tools to introduce the music and dance of Ireland
while respecting the music's cultural origins. An overview of the
history of Irish traditional music provides a basic understanding
of the political and cultural events that have influenced this
musical style. Readers learn how Irish traditional music is viewed
both in formal and informal schools in Ireland and find a
literature review of current ethnomusicology and world music
resources. Music teachers can follow the ready-to-use, 8- to
10-week music unit and use the accompanying CD full of authentic
materials that the author collected while living in Limerick,
Ireland. Recorded in the field, these materials will bring master
teachers to the classroom with song, ceili bands, and Irish step
and set dancing. Units with Irish ceili assessments.
