So You Want to Be a Music Major: What Students and Their Teachers Should Know

  • thumbnail for Robert Franzblau
  • This clinic details the fundamental knowledge, skills, and attitudes that prospective music majors need in order to make a successful transition from high school to college. Specific exercises are offered, along with supporting online resources. It also suggests steps that school band and orchestra directors can take to identify, encourage, and guide future musicians and music educators. It is based on the clinician’s 25 years of experience teaching in elementary through graduate schools.
