  • This session will explore the importance of literature selection in the wind music curriculum. Using the Comprehensive Musicianship through Performance model, participants will explore criteria for quality music selection and how to generate active student engagement. The session will present a four-year curricular approach to programming, including a full-year concert cycle for various level bands, specific details for a single concert, and ways to create strategies for sequential learning from year to year.
