“Niebur’s work is a significant contribution to qualitative scholarship in music education. . . . deserves the attention of a wide audience. General music teachers reading Niebur’s book will likely find validation of their experiences as well as challenges to their thinking. For current and prospective music educators, the accounts of these four teachers provide point of departure for discussions about teaching practices and the process of change.” – Sandra L. Stauffer
