Teaching Technique to Young Instrumentalists

  • thumbnail for Garry Anders
  • This clinic is designed to give band and orchestra teachers methods to successfully teach students technique in their first through third years of playing. However, these techniques may also be applied at the high school level. A student group of sixty second year band members from Jack Hille Middle School in Forest Ridge SD 142, Oak Forest, IL will be employed as a demonstration group. The ensemble was started by Ms. Sandy Kim, beginning band director in fifth grade. The ensemble is under the direction of Mr. Steve Nendza.
