Getting Elementary Students Involved in Band
Moore, Patience
Teaching Music, v16 n4 p57 Jan 2009
The author discusses getting elementary students involved in a band. The goals of an elementary band instructor should include introduction of good practice habits, working within an ensemble, and rehearsal procedures, along with the focusing on the essentials of music. Instructors should let students use the basic instruments: flute, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet, baritone, or percussion. Students need to concurrently take at least one lesson a week to gain familiarity with their chosen instrument.
