Hazo b. He is also a teacher, having spent some part of his career teaching every grade level from kindergarten through college. He was educated at Duquesne University, and now works primarily as a composer. Much the same as in jazz improvisation, the soloist is to play freely in the scales and modes of the genre. In this case, the flute plays in bi-tonal harmonic minor scales, and even bends one note to capture the micro-tonality quarter-tones of the music from this part of the world.

Comments If you are a music educator, then this part of the summer most likely has you researching programming options for your ensemble s.
As someone who wears the educator, composer, and conductor hats, I implore you to please consider the following: 1. Be very selective. For Wind Band alone, there are 2, pieces published every year.
Yes… that means approximately 37 across all grade levels actually deserve to be bought, taught and performed. We have all summer plus the use of Internet to find them. Find them! Pursue compositions with both musical layers and symbolic layers. The pieces themselves should be doing as much teaching as we are. If this philosophy were credible, then all tongue-twisters would be poetry. Every single time our rehearsals succumb to frustration, fatigue, burnout, staleness or distraction by the teacher or students, it can be attributed back to the moment of repertoire selection.
Inspiring music eliminates ALL of those negative mental and physical states as it engages the conductor and ensemble. I know I write this all the time, but it cannot be emphasized enough It stirs us.
It immediately hits us deeper and initiates true contemplation. Then you hear the music and it all comes crystal clear.
