Nearly all children's books about music are written about the orchestra. While the orchestra is one of the foundational ensembles of our culture, there are many more kinds of ensembles that are popular worldwide, including the brass band. When Dr. Amy Schumaker Bliss couldn't find a children's book about brass bands for her son, she decided to write one herself. Written with the expertise of a brass band specialist and illustrated with an eye for detail, this book introduces a basic history of brass bands, the various instruments in a brass band, and different purposes of a brass band all in language that children can understand. Illustrations by Allie Geddert are beautifully colorful and instruments are drawn precisely, with many eyes ensuring accuracy. With a goal of cultural and physical ability inclusion, Amy worked hard to make sure that every child can see him or herself in a character in this book. This book is for everyone: future musicians, parents, grandparents, music educators, classroom teachers, everyone who has ever heard a brass band, and everyone who hasn't. Join Amy as she takes you through her brass band.
