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.
This study in octaves is the eighteenth piece from a collection of 26 Little Caprices for flute (XXVI kleine Capricen für die Flöte) by Danish flutist and composer Joachim Andersen, published in 1890.
This Largo is the opening movement of a Sonata in D major for two flutes or recorders by a German composer named Johann Christoph Schultze. This is not to be confused with the apparently unrelated composer of the same name who was born in 1733, as this sonata was first published in Hamburg in 1729.
This Adagio is the third movement of a sonata in A minor for flute and keyboard that is thought to have been composed by George Frideric Handel. First published in 1730, the sonata is referred to as Halle Sonata No. 1 (“Hallenser Sonate Nr. 1” in German). It was supposed to be an early work composed by Handel before 1703 in his hometown Halle, but its authenticity is now considered doubtful.
