For music educators - By music educators
MSBandDirector.com is designed by and for music educators and provides all the information a school band director needs at their fingertips.
Some thoughts from members regarding usage and contribution on the new paradigm of MSBD:
1. Interact and use MSBandDirector.com as your professional "Facebook." (much more private interactions)
2. Experience new literature by visiting both the collaborative lists and the composer pages on the network. Ask the composers for program notes and insight to their pieces as you listen to their music!
3. Please consider uploading your handbook to the forums to share with all. Comparative research.
4. Consider uploading some professional pictures of your program. This creates a slideshow just for your desk. Choose if you might like to share with others.
5. Invite some more professional music educators to join "Your" network (Create a Group). Messaging capabilities become initiated and email can be a thing of the past.
6. If you use one of the videos with your students, please rate them and consider uploading materials to go with it. Worksheets needed! Questions needed...Lessons created.
7. Check out the links on the main page (and forums/videos), remember that the pdf's are "stacks" and after looking through the stacks, decide if you have a better or complimentary handout and upload it. It will be added to the stack for everyone's use. We always need new materials.
8. Create helpful videos that you teach with. Share them with the membership to use, if you like. Please also add educational support to the comments below each video in the form of guided questions or uploaded worksheets.
9. Set MSBandDirector.com as your browsers homepage at school.
10. Take the time to organize your top 10 literature lists for each music category and upload these to the forums. This will take time, but is what all directors can do to insure great programs/literature Worldwide.
Today's study is taken from the fourth part of the Méthode pour la flûte by French Romantic flutist and composer Louis Drouet, published in Paris in 1828.
These two jigs constitute the fourth movement of the third of Jacques-Christophe Naudot's 6 Babioles pour 2 Vieles, Musettes, Flutes-a-bec, Flutes traversieres, Haubois, ou Violons, sans Basse. The French term babiole humbly indicates something of little value or importance, a trifle.
Totally unrelated to the more famous 15th-century polymath Leonardo da Vinci, Leonardo Vinci was an early 18th-century Italian composer, best known for his operas. His sonata in D major for flute, of which we present today the idyllic fourth movement, is one of the few of his instrumental works to be still played today.
This hornpipe tune of English provenance is known by numerous titles, including “The Hunter's Hornpipe”, “The Bridge of Lodi”, and “Murray's Hornpipe”. One of its earliest appearances is in Yorkshire musician William Calvert's 1812 manuscript, as “Admiral Lord Nelson's Hornpipe”.
The Andantino in A major we present today is the seventh piece from Danish flutist and composer Joachim Andersen's Twenty-Four Etudes for Flute, Op. 30.
