 RE: How to memorize music for band

I wouldn't worry about this problem too much because of your daughter's recent introduction to high school marching band. I'm sure students entering ninth grade all over the country are having the same problems with memorizing music. I myself encountered these set backs, but am now watching it occur with the newer students in my year as drum major. I would suggest that your daughter slowly play the music in sections, and repeat the music several times. I found it easier to memorize a piece at the end of the week after I rehearsed it slowly for a good while. Tell her not to worry, because with constant playing in band, the music will become second nature, especially when she will start learning the marching drill.

Also, keep reminding her that it only gets easier the older she gets. I used to think it would be impossible to keep a catalog of 4 show pieces and 10 pep band tunes in my brain, but after the initial months of required practice, I found it much less difficult. Plus once she's over this short dilemma, she will find it easier to learn other pieces of music without forgetting things she has already learned.
