Hands, Hearts, Minds: Engaging All of it in Band!
- See, hear, play, think, feel, create, ask! These are some of the many facets of skills development for young musicians. Emphasizing a holistic approach in the band setting, this session will help you learn to elevate your students’ experience to a higher level as you shape the total band musician. We will open the doors to multidimensional techniques, highlighting a rich rehearsal environment that focuses on performance, as well as listening, expression, evaluation, and contextual understanding.
