Premier Performance is an innovative and comprehensive band method written with one primary goal: providing band directors with the most effective and logically sequenced instructional materials for young instrumentalists. Premier Performance is carefully structured to develop the three cornerstones of outstanding musicianship: superior tone quality, accurate rhythm reading skills, and technical facility. Strong emphasis is placed on rhythmic development since this may be the greatest challenge facing first and second year students. Premier Performance Book One and Book Two each include two instrument specific Practice Incentive CDs. Premier Performance is also now available on SmartMusic.
