Conducting and Rehearsing the Instrumental Music Ensemble is the most comprehensive guide on the rehearsal process for conducting instrumental music ensembles. Ideal for the advanced instrumental music conductor seeking to look beyond basic conducting technique, this work breaks the multidimensional activity of working with an ensemble, orchestra, or band into its constituent components. Advanced students of conducting will find within the full range of conducting activities: • Chapters on the infrastructure of the rehearsal, the rehearsal environment, 10 rehearsal essentials, score study, music imagery, inner singing, and rehearsal procedures (with an emphasis on an integrated approach to rehearsing) • The technical priorities of intonation and tuning, rhythm patterns, ensemble sonority (tone, balance, blend, color and texture), and articulation • The musical priorities of tempo and ensemble precision, phrasing and the musical line, style and interpretation, dynamics and musical expression • Emphasizing the expectations of 21st-century conductors, the challenges of conducting and rehearsing contemporary music, preparing conductor profiles and self-evaluations, and moving from the rehearsal process to concert performance Conducting and Rehearsing the Instrumental Music Ensemble is a great resource for teachers and students of conducting, as well as current conductors wishing to further hone their skills.

"Heff's Band Aides" by Eugene Heffelfinger Having taught music for more than sixty years, "Mr. Heff" has not only gained valuable experience and knowledge, but has also discovered and utilized techniques that bring out the best in his students. This is the information he hopes to share with his fellow music teachers, the students, and even readers who wish to become more informed about the process of educating musicians! Following an exhaustive discussion of functions that apply to ALL performers, there are chapters devoted to each instrument used in today's wind ensembles. Subsequent sections deal with rehearsal techniques, conducting, music appreciation, private lessons and much more, at times, daring to challenge the reader with, perhaps controversial concepts, guaranteed to stimulate discussion among his many colleagues! ENDORSEMENTS "Heff's Band Aides" by Eugene Heffelfinger, might best be titled "Chicken Soup from the Heart of a Great Teacher." With a brilliant mixture of wit and wisdom, Mr. Heffelfinger distills his many years of teaching experience into spoonfuls of practical, every day; common sense advice. Teachers of all ages will benefit from the concise commentary of this book and will be readily able to put these teaching tips to good use the day after reading the material covered. Thanks to Heff for such a useful collection of ideas!" -Michael Haithcock, Director of Bands and Instrumental Studies, University of Michigan "Lots of good hints and practical advice, most of which could only be found through having had many years of valuable experience! Percussion "stuff" is "spot on!" -Scott Harding, PHD, Faculty: Music Department, C.M.U. "The book has a lot of useful information for everyone; new directors, and old ones! Even if one disagrees with some of the material, it serves, at least, to stimulate discussion. I learned a lot and I'm sure others will, too!" -Joseph Dobos, Director of Bands, East Lapeer HS, Lapeer, MI "To tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed every page of your book would be an understatement. You have a humorous, whimsical and unpretentious style that makes for delightful reading. As a young teacher (1953), oh what I would have given for such a book! The practical knowledge you gained by experience and have put in writing would be a godsend for all young instrumental teachers." -Fritz Stansell, President of Blue Lakes Fine Arts Camp ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Eugene Heffelfinger was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania and, after graduation from Catasauqua High School in 1943, enlisted in the Navy V-5 program as an Aviation Cadet. When the war ended, he was encouraged to study music at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Upon graduation, and marriage to college sweetheart (and piano accompanist), Phyllis Gene Statler, he enjoyed 15 years as band and choir director in Vassar, Michigan. The final years of a very satisfying career were spent teaching instrumental music in the Flint Hamady Schools, Westwood Heights School District. After formal retirement, Heff has continued the teaching of private lessons, the joys of which have inspired the writing of "Heff's BAND Aides" for the benefit of those who also want to experience the satisfaction to be derived from...BEING A TEACHER.

Music Theory Through Improvisation

Designed for Music Theory courses, Music Theory Through Improvisation presents a unique approach to basic theory and musicianship training that examines the study of traditional theory through the art of improvisation. The book follows the same general progression of diatonic to non-diatonic harmony in conventional approaches, but integrates improvisation, composition, keyboard harmony, analysis, and rhythm. Conventional approaches to basic musicianship have largely been oriented toward study of common practice harmony from the Euroclassical tradition, with a heavy emphasis in four-part chorale writing. The author’s entirely new pathway places the study of harmony within improvisation and composition in stylistically diverse format, with jazz and popular music serving as important stylistic sources. Supplemental materials include a play-along Audio CD for improvisation and a companion website with resources for students and instructors.
