Classroom Methods

This book is unique.  On one hand, Making Music Matter is a beginning band method book consisting of 24 progressive lessons that will foster musicianship, artistry, and technique in your students.  But it is much more than a typical method book.

Making Music Matter contains a number of features that are original and innovative:

  • Twenty-four original concert band compositions by Frank Ticheli
  • Fourteen original solo compositions by Frank Ticheli, plus one composition by Frank Ticheli for full percussion ensemble
  • First three pitches are easy to play, more immediately accessible, less intimidating, and present none of the tradition obstacles that beginning players often encounter
  • Creative Corner, a series of three compositional exercises, was designed by Ticheli for the purpose of stimulating students' excitement about composing their own music
  • Daily Drills and Warmups
  • Numbered exercises found in each lesson
