Edgar’s pioneering book Music Education and Social Emotional Learning these teachers, who represent a variety of areas of music education, share their real-world challenges and triumphs with SEL instruction, along with many tips, activities, lesson plans, and suggestions for using SEL in a way that is musical, intentional, and meaningful.
Portraits of Music Education and Social Emotional Learning approaches SEL from a culturally relevant and equitable len, accounting for the ways in which SEL instruction interacts with culture, race, background, and uniqueness, therefore making it a powerful tool for embracing social justice and student empowerment.

While each teacher presents their unique approach to SEL, they come to the same conclusion: SEL is critical to the success of their students and programs.Book.With contributions by: Jill Gagliardi, Elise Hackl, Meghan Hickey, Mary Jensen, Jessica Kwasny, Andrew M.
