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.
