I'm a survivor! 20 years of teaching Beginning Band, and I survive to teach yet another year. What I want more than applause is the ability to be a better educator next year. I want my students to play with better tone. I want deeper mastery of essential music concepts. I want more accurate sight reading. I want to trim the fat and ramp up the essential learning.
These desires drove me to launch StepWise Publications in 2013. The website is incomplete, and my products are still "under construction", but I will never stop creating products for you and me, yours and mine. Do you have an idea for great music education materials? Please drop me a line and let me know! I don't claim to have all the best answers...I just claim to have BETTER ones than I had a few years ago.
Many of my materials are FREE to everyone. Take them! Use them! However, the products that took the most time, sweat, and tears cost a little money, but I have tried to make them affordable and reproducible, where possible. I wish you all the best with your bands this year! Please share your favorite products on Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram, and keep in touch!
