Are We Missing the Mark? An Analysis of Band Repertoire in Relation to NCAS Standards.
Dr. Pippin - Room 36
The purpose of this session is to present research and ideas to foster a conversation about selecting literature and teaching music from historical time periods prior to 1900. There is a lack of understanding of how to locate and incorporate historical literature into a high school band curriculum. Perhaps more importantly, a lack of understanding exists among many band directors that they should be providing their students meaningful engagement in historical music so they can adequately meet the National Core Arts Standards for music adopted by Hawai’i. This session will break down this issue and explore solutions to better prepare the next generation of band students to better understand the continuum of music in a historical context.
