Supplemental Band Method Books
Because this category is a wide-ranging one, you'll find method books with lots of different goals. Some of them are simple, straightforward references, like the Carl Fischer Handy Manual Fingering Charts for Instrumentalists or the Alfred Accent on Performance Holiday Collection Score Book. On the other hand, some are in-depth guides to band techniques. And there are even supplemental resources here for others apart from the musician, such as the FJH Music Measures of Success Parent/Guardian Guide, dedicated to informing parents interested in guiding their young musicians through the trials and tribulations of a school music program.
For some of us, there's only so much value in words and graphics on a page - and there's nothing wrong with that. If you're the sort of learner who works best with materials that allow you to listen and play along, consider choosing supplemental band method books with included CDs or interactive DVDs. There's the Hal Leonard Movie Favorites CD, for example, and the KJOS Standard of Excellence Book 1 and Book 2 Enhancer Kits, which will help you get even more results out of the KJOS books that are already some of the best-selling top resources around.
No matter what you're looking for in supplemental band method books, don't hesitate to take a close look through this section - because you're sure to find something that fits the bill.
