What does a model instrumental music program look like?
School band programs are as different as the directors and people within them. Who determines what a model instrumental music program look like? What does excellence look like? This study looks to use literature based research to help determine what type of program components are best suited for school band programs, as well as classroom best practices from strong programs that already exist to determine what is already happening in schools. The author looks to develop what the model instrumental music program looks like so that educators can use the model for guidance, reflection and improvement to their own programs.
