The Complete Marching Band Resource Manual provides the first serious guidebook for the intricate art of directing high school or college marching bands. Wayne Bailey presents both the fundamentals and the advanced techniques that are essential for successful leadership of a marching band: music instruction, choreography, and band management. In this second edition, Bailey provides band instructors with even more diagrams as well as information on computer charting techniques. The book is divided into four units. The first provides the fundamentals of the marching band and its terminology, marching forms and movements, selection and arrangement of music, charting of formations, and ways to arrange a show. Unit two covers music instruction, improvement of marching and memorization skills, warmups, methods for building endurance and power, and ways to organize band rehearsals. The third unit provides instruction in choosing props and structuring auxiliary units, as well as guidance in tuning and staging the marching percussion line. The fourth unit is a collection of resource ideas, including one hundred and twenty drill charts and three musical arrangements for analysis.

Author Curtis Inabinett, Jr., dedicated himself for a seven-year period and delivers the undeniable story of the Legendary Florida A & M University Marching Band. Inabinett’s extraordinary biographical display of words, vividly paints an illustrative mind’s eye view of the famous band from 1946 to 2015, leaving no stones unturned in his quest to deliver the truth. Released on November 10, 2016, this 296-page 8 by 10 full color book is filled with facts that will instill in readers why ‘The Hundred’ has survived as one of the top marching bands in America. Inabinett tells the story of Dr. William P. Foster, the band’s creator, and how he overcame racism while an undergraduate music major student at the University of Kansas in the early 1940’s. This heartfelt message reveals the power of god and perseverance, and is a must read for all lovers of marching bands, but not only that, Inabinett explores the down side of hazing in marching bands, and how ‘The Hundred’ came back to prominence after a self-imposed suspension in 2012 for a hazing death within its famed band. Inabinett, who has never formally studied journalism, was awarded the first annual ‘2015 – 2016 Alyce Hunley Whayne Award’ for his book manuscript of ‘The Hundred,’ and spent one week in December of 2015 at the University of Kansas’ Kenneth Spencer Research Library completing research for this book.
