Musical Magic reinforces concepts in a fashion that is deliberate and logical. Songs, etudes, and exercises are structured to give students experience with each concept in a variety of settings.
One of the foundations in the design of Musical Magic is the idea of logical pacing. Concepts are scaffolded in a way to build upon each other, and every concept is given sufficient 'face-time' before more advanced ones are introduced.
Musical Magic wanted to create an alternative to method books that, by design, were not able to adequately address the differences between instruments. Decisions regarding starting notes, ranges, articulations, and other musical concepts were able to be individualized for each instrument, aiding in the development of good habits and maximizing the probability of student success.
Pieces for beginning band should have musical merit of their own accord. Whether tried-and-true songs that students already know, new songs that demand the development of reading skills, or exercises that isolate specific concepts, Musical Magic draws from the notion that at its very foundation musical material must be of high quality.
