This much-needed volume explores the often ignored and sometimes poorly played genre of traditional marches. Insightful chapters filled with the rich knowledge and experience of a professional military bandsman and music educator, combined with one-of-a-kind resource guides to the best marches ever composed, make this book a must-have!
There is a huge diversity in the marches covered, including the golden age of bands, the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and the quicksteps of composers like John Philip Sousa, Henry Fillmore, Alex F. Lithgow, Fred Jewell, and others. This volume is a major contribution to the field of music education.
