Abstract and Keywords

This article considers the status of music education for disabled students. Music has long played a key role in special education programs for students with disabilities. However, the inclusive practices in schools today, have increased music educators' accountability in the education of their students. Though instructional roles may differ, music educators often work with students who are along the continuum of abilities ranging from gifted to those with the most severe disabilities. Music educators can prepare themselves by engaging in continuous education, collaborating with other school personnel, and staying up to date on appropriate readings in professional journals.

Keywords: students with disabilities, music education, education practice, musical lives, music educators
