The Marching Band Director's Video Toolbox, Vol. 1 DVD
by Dave Woodley / Bradley McDavid
This instructional DVD series is an essential resource for anyone looking to understand the key building blocks to effective marching band drill design as presented by two of today’s leaders in the marching band world and demonstrated by members of their respective bands.
Until now, there has never been a comprehensive DVD project that clearly and concisely presents a wide variety of techniques complete with video footage from multiple angles appropriate for high school or collegiate bands.
The Marching Band Director’s Video Toolbox is an invaluable guide for music education students and young band directors with limited experience in the marching band genre. It can also be implemented as a dynamic supplement for collegiate marching band technique courses.
Overall, it is a great tool for anyone who is looking to broaden or refresh their knowledge and teaching skills regarding either contemporary or traditional drill.
Topics covered on this DVD include:
- Equal steps/halfway technique
- Figure reduction
- Float: arc to arc
- Float: linear to curvilinear
- Sequential file maneuvers
- Sliding geometrics
The Marching Band Director’s Video Toolbox is the first DVD to demonstrate these marching band drill techniques from start to finish, clearly explaining how to effectively teach, clean, and stage them, and revealing how they look at various camera angles and at different tempi.
Dave Woodley is Director of Athletic Bands at Indiana University. Brad McDavid is Director of Athletic Bands at the University of Washington.
