One of the biggest deficiencies in today's middle level bands is the ability for them to produce a smooth legato with connections between notes. This series of books for all band instruments presents a logical sequence in a variety of keys to improve the students' legato playing aspect of band performance. This book includes: drills that emphasize key understanding and chord progression movement from whole notes to half notes, tone, balance, blend and intonation of the ensemble and daily warm-ups to build strength and flexibility for the brass instruments, technical facility in the woodwinds and rudiments in the percussion.
