The Musical Mastery Teacher's Edition Woodwinds and Brass books have been designed for use in both the school band program, as well as the university level instrumental methods classes.
College students will learn how to play and teach each wind band instrument using a carefully crafted, practical method that encompasses all aspects of teaching the beginning wind band student. Elements addressed include music theory, how to teach rhythm reading, instrument specific posture and pedagogy, as well as diagnostics for each instrument. College students will appreciate this hands on approach to the scope and sequence of the beginner band curriculum, and gain valuable tools for working with advanced instrumentalists too.
This curriculum is extremely relevant to today's music education classes and the way beginners are taught in the 21st century. College students will leave their methods classes with the experience and confidence to start their first band director job.
If you are interested in using these books with your university classes, please contact MRNS Music for a sample copy and for more details on how Musical Mastery will work for you!
“The Musical Mastery text has become an invaluable resource in my instrumental methods classes because of the concise, purposeful, and fundamentally sound information found within. The exercises provide such a fantastic foundation, that when paired with level-appropriate music for performance, young band students will have limitless potential to develop into strong musicians. Musical Mastery is the new standard for beginning texts." - Dr. Brett A. Richardson, University of the Incarnate Word, Coordinator of Music Education/Director of Bands
"Musical Mastery has greatly impacted our music education method classes at UTA. Too many times, method classes are setup to teach a collegiate musician how to play a particular instrument and not how to teach beginners. By using Musical Mastery, our students have a fantastic resource to help them learn not only what concepts to teach, but how to teach those concepts in a developmentally and pedagogically sound sequence. The information contained in these books is phenomenal and they will be a resource students can use in their classrooms." -Dr. Chris Evans, University of Texas at Arlington, Associate Director of Bands
“There is really no reason why anyone teaching beginning instrumentalists shouldn’t have this book in their classroom. Any teacher, whether in their 1st or 30th year of teaching, will find Musical Mastery a tremendous resource with loads of great advice and practical tips.” -David Humphreys, Professor of Low Brass, Texas Wesleyan University. Doctoral Candidate, UNT, former middle school and high school band director
“Using Musical Mastery in our methods courses at UNT has been very beneficial for students and myself as an instructor. It is easy to follow, and the exercises are great for the beginning fundamentals of playing wind instruments. I have previously taught elementary general music and middle school band; looking back at those experiences, Musical Mastery would have been a great addition to the beginning band programs as well.” - Jenna McCall, University of North Texas Teaching Fellow
