Taking a multi-cultural approach to band literature and conducting, this mammoth 680-page volume picks up where the best-selling first book left off, giving band conductors the tools they need to help performers move beyond the printed page to musical awareness and understanding.
Chapters include: Teaching Music (Blocher); The Rehearsal: Mastery of Music Fundamentals (Lisk); Performing Music of Multi-Cultural Diversity (Cramer); Teaching Music from a Historical Perspective (Miles); Whole Brain Listening (Corporon); Composing Music that Educates (Stamp); and Successful Music Advocacy (Lautzenheiser).
The 100 Teacher Resource Guides give a special emphasis to works reflecting the multi-cultural diversity of our world, Grades 2-6. Each Guide includes information about the composer, the composition, historical background, technical requirements, stylistic considerations, important musical elements (including form and structure), and suggested recordings and references.
