Introduction

Choosing repertoire for middle and high school concert band is one of the most difficult things that band directors face. Some even go as far as to say that the repertoire chosen by band directors serves as the curriculum for the music class. New teachers are often unprepared for the task of choosing new music and find themselves in “survival mode” when first teaching. If there were a core repertoire for middle school band, teachers could refer to that when in need.

Method

Results
