Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines the assumptions and perceived boundaries of intermediate and high school concert band in an attempt to enhance and expand beyond traditional approaches to instruction. Extensive research on the skills necessary for preservice teachers to be successful are presented. The socialization and identity development of young instrumental teachers are also explored in detail. A comprehensive approach to teaching musicianship in band is advocated, one that reaches a larger and more diverse student population. It is recommended that the direct instruction model common in intermediate and high school band programs be complemented with more meaningful connections to students’ musical lives outside of school, aural learning experiences, and small peer-led learning opportunities.

Keywords: band, concert band, musicianship, music education reform, music teacher preparation, socialization, identity
