This book will detail cart teaching logistics, tips and tricks for successful music teaching on a cart, lesson planning strategies, and even lesson plans. Offering HOPE in a non-ideal teaching environment, Teaching Music On a Cart will help teachers survive and thrive and perhaps even take their teaching to a whole new level!
