This is a must read for any band director.
Kyle K. Freesen
Of course everything in the book may not be best for your program, but it gives new insight on ideas.
Fresh out of college Teaching
And not only is Jagow's writing useful, it is also pretty easy to read, and often witty.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Matthew Warner on June 20, 2007
Format: Paperback
Shelley Jagow has compiled a comprehensive book that addresses the great variety of issues encountered by band directors young and old. This book includes creative yet practical solutions to common pedagogical problems, historical and cultural developments in band teaching and literature, effective administrative techniques and thoughtful aesthetic commentary. Jagow draws upon the experience of successful band directors, solid scholarly research and inventive ideas; she weaves all of this together in an accessible, clear format. I have found other instrumental methods texts to be anachronistic, uninspired or unrealistic. This book is the solution to those problems...I have already adopted it for my course!

Format: Paperback
This book is a great resource for the beginner teacher, and it would also be a great source for new inspiring ideas to the old pro! I found the ideas so motivating, and simple to integrate into my own teaching, and I had so many new ideas from reading this book. Also, it answers questions that you may be too shy to ask, or not know who to ask....such a great source for any music educator--from the classroom to the private studio (instrumental tips would work for individual student coaching.). A definite must-have for your professional resource library!

I haven't found another comprehensive resource for Secondary Instrumental Methods. This one is quite good; like many things writte for Education classes, however, it sometimes gets bogged down in needlessly technical language. Readability suffers, but the information is sound.

Format: Paperback
If you were like me in college, you probably never learned much in your education classes about band classrooms. Fundraising, administration requirments, classroom management, seating, Band Bank Accounts were some of the things I was never introduced to until getting the posistion at the school......everything was overwhelming at times. This book was my Band Bible for my first year of teaching middle school band. Of course everything in the book may not be best for your program, but it gives new insight on ideas. This book is great for Middle to high school level programs. It is in a textbook format ( chapters), so finding topics is easy and laid out nicely. My favorite thing I applied from the book was teaching March style to my class. The best piece of the evening concert was the march and the students had fun learning about the different sections ( Dog-Fight!). Thanks Shelley
