 RE: How to memorize music for band
Author: mommaq

Thanks all for your help!

I have discovered from watching band rehearsal at camp that this director and assistant have the band learn the moves slowly...then speed it up...then has them play music while marching in place for all the moves they have learned so far...and then add the music to the moves.

The kids do NOT have their flip folders on their they do NOT have lyres yet, so they have to have it memorized for marching or they fake play <which the director and drum major see right off and call attention to>. Today they broke into sections and went to practice for 20 minutes or so, then regrouped in the gym for refinements as a practice listening to each other to produce a whole sound. The flip folders were needed here to see where measure 23 or whatever one they were starting from was, but that was all it was needed for. I watched, in particular, my daughter's eyes....if she kept them on her flip folder or on the director/drum major....and, for the most part, she looked at the director. He hasn't had to call her aside, either, so I believe she is doing fine.

Thanks for all your advice.
