Habits of a Successful Orchestra Director
Christopher Selby and his team have created a resource that is rich with practical strategies for developing a successful orchestra program. This book will inspire young and veteran orchestra directors looking for fresh ideas about teaching orchestra students of all ages to:
- Perform with refined intonation, expressive musicianship, and a beautiful tone
- Develop advanced performance technique, rhythmic precision, and ensemble skills
- Sight-read better, rehearse more efficiently in class, and practice better at home
- Become orchestra leaders and take greater pride and ownership in your ensemble
Additional sections address rehearsal strategies, classroom policies, long-range planning, assessment, tips for building an orchestra program, and suggestions for communicating with parents and principals to better support the orchestra.
