This is an alphabetical list of 152 pieces of literature appropriate for high school bands. This list is gathered after teaching these selections for the past 15 years and the ones that were loved by me, the audience and the students.
The repertoire list is alphabetized by composer, followed by title and grade of difficulty.
The effectiveness of this list will be determined by the make up of your band. I've included pieces that are roughly grade 2 to fit beginning high school bands and run up to several grade 6 pieces that are appropriate for distinguished high school bands or a college concert band.
Please let me know if this is useful or what else you'd appreciate! Once finished, this list will remain free and program notes for each piece along with lesson planning tips per title will follow for a nominal fee. The first 12 reviewers will receive the additional programming notes for free! Many thanks and happy musicking!
