Bruce Pearson's Standard of Excellence has grown to become one of the most popular band methods in the world! It offers a complete band method curriculum available for the instrumental educator. The method answers the growing need for educationally aware, curriculum-oriented material, and was the first method of its kind printed in full color. Unlike methods that rely on supplementary books to provide lesson reinforcement, Standard of Excellence contains valuable supplementary material as part of the method itself. Everything is so intelligently presented that your students will learn quickly, and more importantly, they will not forget what they've learned!
