Rachel Maxwell is a member of the MakeMusic Innovators program. With multiple instruments to learn and independent parts, integrating the percussion section into full-band music can be a challenge.

As a band director whose primary instrument is trumpet, there were a lot of things that I took for granted when I started teaching low brass as a young teacher. Yes, brass is brass.

I have been blessed to work with some pretty amazing euphonium and tuba players and teachers over the years. I know my tuba teacher would say that often, too muc ..read more

Does curriculum drive literature selection? Or does literature selection drive curriculum? If choosing one option leaves you feeling a bit uncomfortable or dissatisfied, perhaps you’d agree that there is a two-way flow. Either way, it’s safe to say that our selection of literature plays a huge role in the delivery of content in the large ensemble setting. Teaching a large ensemble is unlike almost any other discipline. In a typical subject area, curriculum is designed and disseminated, and classroom teachers are responsible for delivering that content in exciting and meaningful ways. As we kno ..read more
