Administrative Duties of the Music Teacher

Show Summary Details


This chapter addresses practical elements of music teaching, including budgets, fundraising, inventory, parent communication, and travel. A review of literature on teacher preparation in administrative duties is included, but a general lack of research in this area suggests that further inquiry would contribute to the overall understanding of the field. The chapter then provides suggestions for developing preservice teacher conceptual frameworks of the various topics. Key concepts and general principles for discussion and preservice teacher involvement are included. Finally, the chapter ends with suggestions for further reading that are directly pertinent to the topics in this chapter, along with other administrative duties topics not covered in this chapter.
