Synopsis: A remarkable amount of historical information is covered in this comprehensive history of the American band. Timelines and photos track developments in American band music from colonial drum and fife corps to the Big Band era; and useful tables compare band music milestones to those of other arts in western civilization, events in U.S. history, and with other American musical breakthroughs. The final section of the book discusses new directions in American music and predicts a bright future for the modern wind band.

About the Author: Richard K. Hansen is director of bands at St. Cloud State University, where he conducts the symphonic wind ensemble and the winds chamber group and teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in conducting, music history, and wind-band literature. He lives in St. Cloud, Minnesota.
