Band Expressions™ is a full-band curriculum that provides music educators at all levels with easy-to-use, exciting tools to meet daily classroom challenges and bring new vibrancy and depth to teaching music. The lessons were written based on the National Standards for Music Education -- not retrofitted to the Standards. The program is both music literacy-based and literacy driven -- based on music literacy while satisfying reading and writing mandates in band class.
Each student book features an attractive full-color interior with easy-to-read notes and includes: -A 96-track accompaniment CD that spans exercises throughout the book -Historical notes on some of the most notable composers of band music -A thorough glossary of musical terms -An introductory unit focused on instrument care, correct posture, and hand positioning
Future reprints may be printed with black and white interiors.
