One of the great joys of being a musician is learning and enjoying new music. When you’re not creating your own original music, supplemental band method books can give you the information you need to play everything from the classics to memorable modern pieces that everyone will enjoy. A method book, in the most basic of terms, acts as a primer to help you learn how to play your instrument and the music associated with that instrument, allowing you to not only develop a basic understanding, but to also excel as part of an orchestra or while playing a solo. A good method book is like a teacher you can take with you anywhere, with the answers to all your most important questions.
When choosing a method book, there are a number of options available to you, so it’s important to have a good idea of what it is you’re looking for. First of all, are you looking for a general book or a book for a specific instrument? There are a number of books that are written with specific instruments in mind, for example, the Accent on Performance March Collection Flute Book and the Accent on Performance March Collection Baritone Saxophone Book, both from Alfred. On the other hand, there are books that cover a wide variety of instruments as well. Books like the Carl Fischer Handy Manual Fingering Charts For Instrumentalists and the KJOS Winning Rhythms All Instruments book are great for student bands or musicians that are planning on playing multiple instruments. Regardless of which type of supplemental band method books you decide on, you’re sure to gain experience and skill while practicing with them.
Additionally, different method books can focus on different types of music. Are you interested in playing the holiday classics? Then check out one of the many holiday performance collection books from Alfred. Maybe you’d rather play your favorite film score or theme? Then you’ll want to have a look at the Hal Leonard Movie Favorites CD sets, which actually include backing tracks so you can play along with your favorite scenes. Again, the right supplemental band method book for you is simply the one that helps you achieve your goals.
Learning to play an instrument is a commitment and, at times, a challenge. With a great supplemental band method book though, you can tackle any exciting new musical opportunity head on, allowing you to play on your own or as part of an orchestra or band in no time.
