Essential Elements for Band Book 1 offers beginning students sound pedagogy and engaging music, all carefully paced to successfully start young players on their musical journey. EE features familiar songs and specially designed exercises, created and arranged for the classroom in a unison-learning environment, as well as instrument-specific exercises to focus each student on the unique characteristics of their own instrument. EE provides both teachers and students with a wealth of materials to develop total musicianship, even at the beginning stages.Each Book Includes My EE LibraryStart-up Video learn the basicsPlay-along mp3 features a professional player on your instrumentDuets and Trios print and play parts with friendsMusic Listening Library hear great pieces for bandSmartMusic exercises 1-100Enhanced Learning SystemBook 1 uses unmeasured Long Tones to establish good tone production from the very beginning, and uses Quarter Notes to teach pulse and rhythm. By exercise 14 your students will be playing well-known melodies and enjoying the excitement of playing in the band!The unique considerations of Horns and Oboes are difficult to address using a classroom band method, so we’ve created special pages for these instruments with their own optional starting systems.Optimum Reinforced LearningNew material is carefully paced, sequential and immediately reinforced. New notes are approached in the easiest ways, then gradually played within wider skips and different rhythms. Each new rhythm is introduced as a Rhythm Rap, then repeated on simple pitches, and finally placed in an appropriate melodic setting.Theory, History, Cross-Curriculum and CreativityIt’s all right in each student book, correlated with the music and concepts they are currently learning. This is by far the most efficient way to meet the National Standards, integrate other subjects into the music curriculum, and still teach the essentials of music performance.Daily Warm-Ups & Rubank StudiesEstablish good practice habits, tone and technique with the two sets of Daily Warm-ups included in each book. The Rubank Scale and Arpeggio Studies cover the four major keys taught in Book 1, all adapted from Rubank’s “best-of-the-best” to expand your students’ technical skills.12 Full Band ArrangementsResearch shows that students are more likely to succeed (and stay in band) if they perform a concert for parents within the first 8 weeks. That’s why we’ve created an impressive early concert featuring 6 full band arrangements after they’ve learned just 7 notes! The concert is the first of the Performance Spotlight features, which include 12 full band arrangements and 2 solos with piano accompaniment.Rhythm Studies

Students begin with the note names written inside the note heads, and then the names are gradually eliminated.Contemporary pedagogy starts from the “top” of the hand. Violins and violas start with three fingers down, cellos with four. This technique creates better left-hand shape and helps develop proper playing position from the beginning. Teaching the double bass is accomplished without displacing the octave.Optimum Reinforced LearningNew material is carefully paced, sequential and immediately reinforced. New notes are approached by step, then gradually played with wider skips and crossing strings. Each new rhythm is introduced as a Rhythm Rap, which can be shadow bowed, then played on an open string, and finally placed in an appropriate melodic setting.The right hand is thoroughly and sequentially developed through a series of seven Bow Builders. Each one defines a specific action required to produce an acceptable bow hand.PacingOnly one new concept is introduced at a time. The pacing encourages student mastery without excessive repetition. You can move from line to line quickly within each class. Students master quarter notes, then move to eighth, half, dotted-half, and whole notes.New concepts are presented in familiar keys and rhythms. These skills are integrated in shaded sections called Skill Builders to combine rhythms, pitches and bowings into comprehensive exercises to develop solid technique.Theory, History, Cross-Curriculum and CreativityIt’s all right in each student book, correlated with the music and concepts they are currently learning.
