Band director Tom Dust (secondary music education, U. of Alberta, Canada) and Laura Dust, a former public school music teacher who teaches piano and lectures on working with beginning band students and classroom management, present a guide for new and experienced directors looking for new strategies for working with their junior or middle school bands. They focus on the management aspects of a two-level band program (not music skills) and discuss getting a job, planning the school year, the first week of class, instrumentation, working with beginning band students, classroom management, band music levels, assessment, concerts, the band parents' group, concert and jazz bands, trips, planning the following year, and advice for first-year teachers. No index is included.
