Got Band? No Wind Ensemble - No Problem!

  • thumbnail for Rebecca Warren
  • Many, if not most, band programs consist of one director who serves the entire instrumental population. These programs often contain students from various grades and abilities. Not all of us are fortunate enough to teach in a situation that allows us to have an auditioned or “top” group. We don’t have Wind Ensembles, Wind Symphonies, or any other select group. Quite simply we have a band. Yet, these programs can be very successful and help students achieve a superior level of musicianship.
