The Band Director's Guide to Arranging for the Marching Band by Jeffrey Waggoner

The Band Director’s Guide to Marching Band Arranging is designed for any band director (or other musician) who wants to create music for marching bands but is unsure how to start. In addition to covering basic topics like instrumentation, voicings, and notation conventions, the book digs into other issues that are important for arrangers to consider, such as evaluating the ensemble, developing good musical form and contour, writing easy arrangements, and developing a band’s signature “sound.” The book shows how to work with the music notation program Sibelius as a virtual sketchpad, as well as how to use the program to create teaching tools for marching performers. Two versions of a sample arrangement are provided, written at two different levels of difficulty.
