“Hansen’s book is an essential guide for anyone teaching a music appreciation course online. Those who are new to teaching will find all the essentials outlined, including helpful examples of teaching and testing strategies. Those whose experience is limited to the classroom will perhaps find this book even more valuable, as it clearly and systematically shows how teaching online is different, providing all the guidance necessary to make an online class successful.”

— Robin Wallace, author of Take Note: An Introduction to Music through Active Listening

From how to think about it, to specific issues of planning and design, to a broad spectrum of practical and creative techniques and strategies, she creates a detailed roadmap for effective online instruction in music appreciation. This volume will be an invaluable resource for anyone teaching music appreciation online.”

— Judith Bowman, Professor of Music Education & Music Technology, Duquesne University

Just as a general philosophy defines one's purpose in life, a teaching philosophy can give purpose to one's online teaching.
