Please join us Friday, April 13th, at 3 p.m. in Fine Arts West 145 for our ninth Faculty Colloquium of this semester.
Presenter: Hector Aguero, Assistant Professor of Music
Title: “Kaizen: Japanese Musical Resources for the American Band Classroom”
Abstract: In recent decades, Japan has become a world leader in the production and consumption of band music and pedagogical resources. Prof. Agüero explores the pedagogical similarities and differences between the American and Japanese band classrooms and shares first-hand observations, experiences, and insight into systems, techniques, and strategies pioneered by Japanese school bands to perfect balance, intonation, and overall sound. He will also explain how some of these Japanese techniques can be implemented in our American band rehearsals.
Students are welcome and coffee and treats will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there.
