Abstract and Keywords

This chapter addresses topics related to English language learners (ELLs) in both K–12 music settings and music teacher education programs. Drawing on an overview of the foundational principles of English language development and acquisition, it discusses (a) practices for working with ELL students in K–12 music, (b) the needs and experiences of ELL preservice music teachers, and (c) curricular modifications that music teacher educators might make when working with ELL students. In the course of the discussion, it outlines specific ways in which music teacher educators might adapt content in such settings as conducting, methods, and introductory music education courses. Finally, the chapter addresses specific differences that might be addressed when working with international students (i.e., foreign students who are pursuing music education studies at American universities).

Keywords: English language learners, ELLs, music teacher education, methods classes, curriculum
