 How to memorize music for band
Author: mommaq

Well, here goes again.....

My daughter is in Marching Band <RAH> this year and the director has told all musicians to memorize the music for band camp. My daughter has never had to memorize music before. She loves reading the music...and remembers what's up ahead, but not to the point of having stuff memorized.

The band will be playing music from "Mr. Holland's Opus" for the show and selections from Sesame Street. She has worked with her private teacher, but she soon forgets what comes next. We are at a loss as to what we can do. I have told the band director that she is having problems, but he didn't help or give any hints. He did record the music the band will perform so she will get the whole picture and be able to get music cues as to what comes next <Some lesson books now come with accompaning cd and that's were I got that idea>, but I'm running out of ideas....

Do any of you good people have any HINTS or methods you use to memorize music? THANKS!
