Begin your band students' learning journey on the right foot with "Now Go Home and Practice!", a book built on the arrangements of James Swearingen who is well known for his musically sound compositions for young instrumentalists. The book is sequenced so that all instrumentalists learn the same first notes, allowing them to start making music together instantly! As the book progresses, pitches are introduced in the order that makes the most sense for each instrument. For the less-experienced teacher, a guide for building a band program is included. Setting this method apart, parental resources are included. You can spend your time developing students' technique instead of drafting parent letters. Student pages are also included throughout this comprehensive, 368-page resource so you know what the students and parents in your program are seeing. The student book contains information about instrument assembly and care, playing position, first tones, and tuning as well as parent tips.
