Essential Studies for Beginning Band

Essential Studies for Beginning Band is the lesson book that I use with my 1st and 2nd year band students. It combines the best exercises, approaches, and literature that I’ve used. There is a lot of practice included with every group of new rhythms and pitch sets (scales) that are introduced.

Here is the Table of Contents so you can check out what is covered in this method book:
