Building on the success of the Teaching Music series, the books include analyses of Grade 1 works, breaking each piece down into Entry Level, Intermediate Level, and Advanced Level repertoire categories. Each analysis includes information about the composer and the composition, historical background, technical requirements, stylistic considerations, form and structure, and suggested recordings and references. The authors, all leaders in beginning band education, come together to provide compelling insights on the critical issues facing school band directors today.
Recordings by University of North Texas Symphonic Band, Dennis W. Fisher, conductor, and University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee Wind Ensemble, Thomas Dvorak, conductor.
