Book series:

Teaching Music Through Performance in Band” by Larry Blocher, Eugene Corporon, Ray Cramer and Tim Lautzenheiser. There are nine books in this series.

Concert band warmup books:

  1. Superior Bands in Sixteen Weeks – Quincy Hillaird
  2. Symphonic Warm-ups for Band – Claude T. Smith

Rhythmic studies books:

Rhythmic Vocabulary – Ed Sueta (Note: You can download this document from the link provided.)

Fourteen Weeks to a Better Band – Roger Maxwell (There is a Junior High set and a Senior High set.)

 

All of this material is tax-deductible for a band director as work-related materials.

A list of suggested concert band pieces will come out soon through Block Band.
