I work with ensembles on a daily basis and this book has challenged me to consider what I do and how I do it. It has made me arrange more music and made me feel more confident about doing so. It has also given me a resource to turn to if I need encouragement - this is provided by excellent case studies of people that have found success in so many different places. This book is practical, helpful, informative and highly interesting. I would challenge any music teacher or ensemble leader to read this book and find nothing of use. We can all learn something. I strongly believe that if you are a music teacher you need to get a copy of this and make sure everyone in your department reads it. And take the advice on board. Every rehearsal you run will be changed by this book.
So buy this book, read this book and change your ensembles or start a new one. I am so glad that this book is available and I know that I will be returning to it time and time again for advice and hints for how to do my job as a musical leader better!
And for the price it is a real bargain - especially considering the instant impact it will have on your work!
With the current interest in choral groups, (led by TVs Gareth Malone) this book is well timed to support those keen to form such a group.

It guides the reader through starting up an ensemble all the way up to the final rehearsals before a concert and how to do personal reviewing post-concert.
I found the part about arranging particularly useful as I have never tried arranging before. It has inspired me to give it a go! This book talks us through writing and arranging music for any instrumental or stylistic setting. It also explains that it is acceptable to modify music to cater for the needs of your ensemble!
Overall, if you want to start up an ensemble, you need to read this! It will give you everything you need to know about starting up, rehearsal techniques, how to keep interest going, arranging and much, much more.
