This book helps music teachers make natural connections between science, technology, engineering, math, and music. To do so, the book frames twenty-first century learning skills and career-ready practices so that the creativity and innovation necessary to succeed in STEM content areas and careers can be directly addressed by the educational community. The connection that the book makes between STEM content areas and music stimulates inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.
