Belwin 21st Century Band Method - Book 1
Jack Bullock & Anthony Maiello - Alfred Publishing Co., Inc.
Band directors have always looked to the Belwin name for quality, and this band method continues that tradition. Along with a clear layout and logical progression of skills, Belwin uses student videos geared to each instrument! In each tape features an introduction by Wynton Marsalis, followed by an artist/teacher who shows basic care and assembly of each instrument, and demonstrates beginning tone production and rhythmic training and ideas for parents. Each lesson in the student books contains theory exercises, music from many countries and styles and easy duets. Also included are full concert pieces written especially for the method by Robert W. Smith and Robert Washburn. A play-along CD is available which offers the music in every student book that add fun to the musical experience for your students! (Numbers are shown for Books 1 & 2. Book 3 is also available.)
