This volume contains 1276 pages of Teacher Resource Guides to current wind band literature, Grades 2 through 6 thought-provoking and inspiring chapters by leaders in the profession and a comprehensive set of indexes to more than 800 works.

This volume features chapters on "The Roads to Inspired Teaching: Ingenuity, Insight, Integrity, and Inspiration" by Ray Cramer, "The Energy of Musical Thought" by Edward S. Lisk, "What Are You Working on Now" by Larry Blocher, "Principles for Achievement, Enhancing Musicianship, and Valued Colleagues" by Eugene Migliaro Corporon, "The Affective Domain of Band Directing: Developing Quality Habits of Highly Successful Music Educators," by Tim Lautzenheiser.
