The first book of its kind in the world, The Creative Band & Orchestra provides conductors, directors and educators with over one hundred ideas, techniques, exercises and musical examples. Through this book, you will be able to: enliven ensemble interaction; introduce five approaches to improvisation; heighten listening skills; stimulate new brainstyles; develop innovative scores; incorporate rotational seating; implement motivational ideas; present playing healthy techniques; and more! "If you're a music educator struggling to maintain your students' interest, this book is right up your alley. Presenting alternatives to the mainstream approaches to teaching music, Lieberman gives us a host of techniques, games and approaches that will horrify your stuffy music theory teacher. But get this: kids might actually enjoy them!" Jazz Times
I want to thank you for the special contribution you made to a very successful workshop. I especially appreciated the excellent performance you did on Sunday evening. Just great! Bravo and Brava!! I particularly appreciate your knowledge of musical styles from around the globe, your ability to demonstrate them authentically, and your effectiveness in sharing them with an audience. The presentations on Monday were excellent as well, with meaningful handouts and good connections with the participants. Thank you for a great kick-off for the week!

Julie, this Facebook is a miracle, because, of musical pedagogues, you are a Titaness, and I can’t believe I am speaking to someone of such talent who has authored books and thoughts that have guided me so profoundly in my entire life outlook … not just musically.
