Michael L. Mark is the author of several books, including Contemporary Music Education and Source Readings in Music Education History. He is professor emeritus of Towson University where he also served as dean of the Graduate School.


From its earliest years to the present Michael L. Mark tells the story of American music education with erudition and clarity. All music educators and others who want to and need to know the colorful history of the largest art education field in American education will be amply rewarded by his scholarship, which succeeds in being both succinct and thorough. It is an important addition to the foundational literature of this field. -- Bennett Reimer, John W. Beattie Professor of Music Education Emeritus, Northwestern University
Honoring the legacy of generations of music educators and mapping pathways that guided and advanced the profession, the authors have illuminated how history can inform contemporary practice. The narrative provides compelling testimony for advocating music education that can add depth and meaning to everyday life in the music classroom. A valuable and accessible book that has an important place in the music educator's professional library. -- Marie McCarthy, professor and chair of Music Education, University of Michigan
