Band Expressions™ is a full-band curriculum that provides music educators at all levels with easy-to-use, exciting tools to meet daily classroom challenges and bring new vibrancy and depth to teaching music. The lessons were written based on the National Standards for Music Education — not retrofitted to the Standards. The program is both music literacy-based and literacy driven — based on music literacy while satisfying reading and writing mandates in band class.
Each student book features an attractive full-color interior with easy-to-read notes and includes:
-A 78-track CD in each student book with accompaniments for various songs and exercises throughout the lesson book
-Historical notes on some of the most notable composers of band music
-A thorough glossary of musical terms
-Tips on advanced instrument care and maintenance
Future reprints may be printed with black and white interiors.
