Core Repertoire Guide

The Music for All Core Repertoire Guide is currently undergoing an update to include additional under-represented composers. An updated version will be available in the summer of 2022. 

The Music for All National Festival evaluation panel has compiled a “Core Repertoire Guide” for Band and Percussion that is intended to challenge and inspire each of us to seriously consider the artistry and depth of music we share with our students.

The instructional value of this literature reflects pedagogical and musical challenges, artistic and intellectual involvement, and long-term creative growth. We strongly encourage you to consider this Core Repertoire Guide along with these educational factors as you prepare your programming.
