Chamber Music, as purported by numerous academic and non-academic music education sources, is a valuable for developing the essential skills for musical development. The guide is designed to serve as scaffolding for young musicians to play chamber music together without the structure of a formal teacher. To facilitate this process for a variety of students, the music is designed using diverse instrumentation scoring so that any group of 5 musicians can play together the music arranged for this book. By examining all of the exercises in this guide, young musicians will complete self-driven content lessons in all of the nine Standards of Music Education as published by the National Association for Music Education. Developed through research in chamber music and the benefits of chamber music on developing musicians, this book serves to bolster the practice of chamber music in and out of the wind band classroom.
