Teaching Music through Performance in Band - Volume 1

By Larry Blocher, Eugene Migliaro Corporon, Ray Cramer, Tim Lautzenheiser,
Edward S. Lisk, Richard Miles. Compiled and edited by Richard Miles.

This best-selling series has quickly become the indispensable resource for band directors searching for the best possible music (grades 2-6), analysis of that music, and insights from national leaders in the field on the most compelling issues facing band directors today.


This is the book that broke new ground with its theoretical, practical, and analytical information for band directors seeking to help their students.

Divided into three sections, Part I examines the various theoretical aspects for the band director, including music selection, the student learning process in band, rehearsal design, and student assessment in band. Part II offers practical suggestions for the band director in teaching music during rehearsal, building a band curriculum, and structuring for teacher, student, and program success.

Part III, the "nuts-and-bolts" Teacher Resource Guides, contains analysis of 100 best-known and respected band compositions, grades 2-6. Included for each musical selection is information about the composer, the composition, historical background, technical requirements, stylistic considerations, important musical elements including form and structure, suggestions for additional listening, and a guide to selected references.

This book is an essential resource for band directors at all levels and a major contribution to the field.
