In the wind band profession—as in every great discipline—it is critical to take stock in the big questions about where we are heading, and why, as we move through the twenty-first century.
This thought-provoking book contains seven high-level exchanges between a leading wind band practitioner and a music education philosopher. Each section of The Future of the Wind Band grapples with the most profound issues facing the music education profession and the path of instrumental music education in our schools:
Such exchanges can only strengthen our profession and pay rich dividends in our musical and educational work with the students we serve.
Editor of this book, William (Bill) M. Perrine is Associate Professor of Music and Director of Instrumental Activities at Concordia University in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he directs the wind ensemble, marching band, and community orchestra.
