Summary

TheComplete Marching Band Resource Manualprovides the first serious guidebook for the intricate art of directing high school or college marching bands. Wayne Bailey presents both the fundamentals and the advanced techniques that are essential for successful leadership of a marching band: music instruction, choreography, and band management. In this second edition, Bailey provides band instructors with even more diagrams as well as information on computer charting techniques. The book is divided into four units. The first provides the fundamentals of the marching band and its terminology, marching forms and movements, selection and arrangement of music, charting of formations, and ways to arrange a show. Unit two covers music instruction, improvement of marching and memorization skills, warmups, methods for building endurance and power, and ways to organize band rehearsals. The third unit provides instruction in choosing props and structuring auxiliary units, as well as guidance in tuning and staging the marching percussion line. The fourth unit is a collection of resource ideas, including one hundred and twenty drill charts and three musical arrangements for analysis.
