The latest in the Teaching music through performance in band series is a second edition of the first volume ever produced. It was 1997 when the first volume was released and since then the series has expanded to 7 volumes for band (with volume 8 currently in production), 2 for beginning band, 3 for orchestra, 2 for choir and one each for jazz ensembles and marches. The first volume was groundbreaking when first released, but the depth of analysis of the works was rudimentary compared to the later volumes. GIA Publications and editor Richard Miles have remedied this by completely rewriting volume 1: all 100 analyses have been rewritten as well as the opening essays by Larry Blocher, Ray Cramer, Eugene Corporon, Edward Lisk, Richard Miles and Tim Lautzenheiser. This was an important project for GIA to undertake as volume 1 naturally included the most popular and important works in the band repertoire.
