There are two that we use: |
Tradition of Excellence Technique and Musicianship (Pearson and Nowlin)
Essential Musicianship for Band (Green, Benzer, Berman, Villarreal)
There are three levels to the EMB. We use "Fundamental Ensemble Concepts" (level 1) for our beginners. We use "Intermediate Ensemble Concepts" for our bottom band. The 1st and 2nd band uses "Intermediate Ensemble Concepts" and T&M focusing on a key signature every two weeks (every major key is followed in the book by its relative minor; one week on major, the next on minor). With these two books, I will never go back to FSP again.
