The Heritage of Band Music from Its Beginnings to the Present

  • thumbnail for Joseph Kreines
  • An attempt to cover the most significant literature for winds from the earliest years of the medieval through contemporary art music. Audio examples of the literature discussed will be provided. Additionally we will explore the current trends in programming music and pedagogical considerations in choosing literature, as well as the role transcriptions play in our wind band classrooms.
