Synopsis

Wind Bands and Brass Bands in Schools and Music Centres by Kevin Thompson

Responding to the upsurge of interest in wind and brass bands, Dr Kevin Thompson has written a practical manual for all who are involved with them whether in school or music centres, or in an adult community band. This essentially pragmatic book - the first of its kind - gives helpful advice on how to start a band, the choice of instruments, basic organisation, useful seating plans, rehearsal tips, composing and scoring for bands of different sizes. Additionally, there are innovative approaches to instrumental teaching, new ideas for bringing together classroom and group instrumental activities, and exciting repertoire suggestions.
