Lesson books are all written to be sequential but many of them tend to rush the motor skills needed to master the range of notes. “First Songs for Band takes the approach that tone quality and musical phrasing are above all else. You will learn new musical concepts with each song and master the motor skills for the instrument’s range of notes.
