Imagine musicians creating, performing, and responding all within a single rehearsal while deepening understanding and perfecting technique. Does it sound impossible? Curious, Collaborative, Creativity: A Guide to Transforming Music Ensembles shares how you can accomplish this with your own music ensemble. Developed and tested by school band, choir, and orchestra directors, the CCC approach empowers your musicians with 21st century skills while building musical expertise. In this e-book, you will discover how to implement the easy CCC three-step process in any school or community music ensemble. Links to printable materials, video examples, websites, resources, and step-by-step instructions from the first rehearsal to the performance are included within the e-book. Authors, Dr. Caron Collins and Dr. Danni Gilbert, together have over 40 years’ experience in teaching music, researching, and presenting at the local and national conferences. “The CCC model presents opportunities for collaboration between musicians with a wide variety of abilities and experiences, which has the potential to invite diversity and community that is often lacking in traditional ensemble settings.” (Dr. Timothy Sullivan, professor of composition and music theory, State University of New York, Potsdam). Transform your music ensemble and share your experiences in this musical revolution.
