Band Blastoff with hosts Deanna Swoboda and Lance LaDuke is a revolutionary new DVD that will change the way band directors recruit students to join their music programs!
This video is a valuable tool that will augment a band director's ability to recruit and will bring students into the first band rehearsal with an all new level of excitement and enthusiasm. This 20-minute program is the main recruitment section of the DVD. It breaks down the fun, friendship, and teamwork involved in being in band with live footage of bands performing and rehearsing and interviews with students. The funky "Band Rap" is the exciting conclusion of the DVD that will put your students in the perfect frenzy to join band! It is a 5-minute tour through the instruments of the band including short audio demonstrations of each instrument in an upbeat style that will be sure to get your students excited about the instrument they choose. Additionally, this video can also be played in its own, independent of the Band Blastoff recruitment program.
In addition to the DVD, you are provided with an supplemental worksheet for student assessment. The page includes three written challenges that help to test rhythm memory, identification of like/unlike melodies, and high/low/same notes (the video can also be ran without these assessments, if desired). Finally, the worksheet allows a student to choose his/her top choices for a potential instrument before a teacher collects for survey and assignment.
