Keeping Them in their Seats: How to Program Successful Concerts for Your Students and for Your Audience

  • thumbnail for Jeffrey D. Gershman
  • Because repertoire serves as the core curriculum of any music program, a long-term, stylistically diverse approach will be discussed that will enable students to perform music from all historical periods. In addition, to aid in the effective crafting of outstanding concert programs, we will address specific topics, including creating concert flow through program order, factoring in the endurance requirements, difficulty of the repertoire, and appropriate concert length.

  • Dr. Jeffrey D. Gershman is currently the associate director of bands and an associate professor of music at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, where his responsibilities include conducting the Symphonic Band and teaching courses in undergraduate music education and repertoire and graduate conducting. His past positions include serving as the director of instrumental activities at Texas A&M University-Commerce and as the co-director of instrumental music at Monroe-Woodbury High School in Central Valley, New York. In constant demand as a guest conductor, clinician, and adjudicator throughout the United States, Singapore, and Australia, he has also published articles in MBM Times on repertoire, programming, and score study which have been hailed as “groundbreaking.” Gershman holds degrees from Indiana University and The University of Texas at Austin.
