Author: Christopher Selby
Editor: Scott Rush
Format: Book
Version: Text Book

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.

"This book is a must-read for all interested in teaching string orchestra at the K12 level! Written by a seasoned and exemplary teacher -- it is chock full of great teaching ideas that will help you be successful in your classroom! Buy it, read it, and keep it in your library -- you will come back to it time and time again!" - Mary L. Wagner, Former National ASTA President and co-author of the ASTA String Curriculum
