Do you teach band, or are you a band tutor or teacher of band instruments?
If so, I have a question for you.
Q. What could better than learning from the wisdom of a super-experienced band director, and learning their single best idea for warming-up and engaging their band?
A. Learning from hundreds of super-experienced band directors, and learning all the best tried and tested ideas for warming-up and engaging their band!
At the Fun Music Company we need your help.
We have a vision for a new product: A collection of Band Warmups which are drawn from the collective wisdom of hundreds of band directors.
We have already found a fantastic editor, so now we are ready to take submissions for the book.
All you need to do is write down your SINGLE BEST IDEA for warming up a band, and send it to us via email.
The submission doesn’t need to be fancy: You can simply describe it in text if you can, or else just jot it down using a music program and make it into an image and send it to us. Or else send it as a MIDI file, Sibelius or Finale – that is just fine.
The best part is this: every contributor (no matter how small the contribution is) will receive an absolutely FREE copy of the final publication.
Just imagine: If we can get hundreds of ideas then this resource will be the most amazing collection of warmups ever published!
We will be accepting submissions for the entire month of April, 2013. We’ll then go into an editing process, when our editor will collate the submissions into a publication. After that we’ll then go through a review process, where we’ll ask three or four of the most eminently qualified band directors we can find to review and improve the book.
With all of this process, the book will most likely be available around June or July, 2013. Those people who have contributed to it will be the first to get hold of it – before it is released for sale to the general public.
We are following a similar process to what we did for our Choir Warmups e-book. This has been tremendously successful: helping hundreds of choir trainers with ideas for warming up and engaging their choirs.
So please, if you’re a band director or tutor please send us your ideas. Feel free to share this page around with your colleagues and friends and invite them to contribute. Remember: the more people who contribute will result in a much more complete and valuable publication.
