Description:

Learning was never so much fun! If you're looking for a revolutionary band curriculum that builds solid musicianship while motivating your students to practice throughout the year, then you've found it! This full band curriculum is sound in its pedagogy, written by leading young band composers and educators, including Robert W. Smith and Michael Story. The integration of important songs from the band world, that are both familiar and fun to play, is one of the stellar aspects of this course.

Throughout the book, students experience music from a veritable "who's who" list of great band composers. They'll discover the musical contributions of Henry Fillmore, Johann Sebastian Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Clare Grundman, Ralph Vaughan-Williams, Scott Joplin, Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, and Igor Stravinsky.

Some of the notable features include
A wonderful variety of melodies that span various styles and periods, including many popular themes students will know today
A 78-track CD in each student book with accompaniments for various songs and exercises throughout the lesson book
Professional recordings in diverse styles keep practice fun
Four comprehensive score/teacher volumes with guided lessons, related activities and supplementary experience ideas
Historical notes and biographies on some of the most notable composers of band music
A percussion book that exposes students to learning and performing on more than 25 different instruments
Develops composition, arranging, improvisation, and ear training, as well as music reading skills
Reproducible worksheets and overhead transparencies to enhance classroom and home learning
Includes 11 full band pieces written by Michael Story and Robert W. Smith, including Star Wars® (Main Title) in book 2
Teacher CDs that includes accompaniments, ear training, and lesson-related listening activities for the students

Your students will love playing along with the CD accompaniment tracks! And, for the director, the Teacher's Curriculum Package provides the four teacher edition volumes, the Teacher Support Pack (worksheets, forms, and transparencies), the Teacher Resource Guide, and the Teacher CD pack, which make lesson planning easy and enjoyable. The related activities, supplementary lesson ideas, curriculum planning information and much, much more are offered to assist and inspire you.
