Re: Beginner Situation
For that setup, I would use Accent on Achievement for ww and brass. Other methods books would work just fine. For percussion, I would have them get the AoA combined book for when you need to combine them, but would use the Fresh Approach books for their percussion class. I am a percussionist. When I had a beginning percussion class, I used Fresh Approach for mallets and Garwood Whaley's "Rhythm Reading for Drums" book for snare. I kept a close eye on technique while they were playing.
