One of the greatest issues and least talked about dilemmas a band director faces in regard to their band curriculum is how to properly integrate all the aspects of total percussion into the band program.
Music education has come a long way and band directors have seen the value of providing a comprehensive percussion enducation to their students. However, teaching total percussion in the middle school setting comes with inherent problems that can be difficult to navigate without the proper guidance. In this book, the author provides direction on how to motivate the percussion student and incorporate total percussion into the concert band rehearsal as well as within the school percussion lesson. This book also offers insight on how to incorporate a percussion ensemble into the music program. This research is based on analysis of related literature and gathers methodologies used by music teachers throughout the United States. In addition, this book examines numerous percussion education paradigms gathered from a comprehensive survey of music educators.
