Reply To: Method books – which ones work for your band?
I Teach beginning band to 4th and 5th graders. two years ago my colleagues agreed we would all use essential Elements 2000. I’m going back to Accent on Achievement. I found the Ess. elements too hard for the flutes in the beginning and I like the format to Accent. New info, terms, notes are all highlighted in colorful boxes.
I believe our middle school teachers use Standards of Excellence.
