Measures of Success®

A Comprehensive Musicianship
Band Method

Measures of Success® was created to ignite musical curiosity, to unite conceptual knowledge with performance skills, to foster understanding of the many ways that people share and interact with music, and to assess each student's continued musical growth.

FJH Starter Series

(Grade 0.5)
Ideal for the first several months of instruction. These pieces are a comfortable length for students (about a half page of music) and are playable with as few as five instruments. All instruments are limited to a 6-note diatonic range. Several supplemental exercises are included to help teach different elements of each piece.

FJH Beginning Band

(Grade 1)
Appropriate within the first year of instruction and beginning of the second year. Clarinets do not go above the break, and there is limited use of accidentals. Plenty of doublings in the lower voices.

Measures of Success® Performance Series

(Grades 0.5 - 1)
Performance Music Correlated with Measures of Success® for Band.

FJH Developing Band

(Grade 1.5)
Slightly more advanced than beginning band. Clarinet 1 begins to play over the break. Rhythms and ranges are expanded to accommodate the end of first-year as well as second-year instruction.

FJH Young Band

(Grades 2 - 2.5)
Appropriate for middle school and smaller high school groups. Second clarinets usually stay below the break. Parts are written with more independence, and instrumentation increases slightly. There is still adequate doubling in the lower voices.

FJH Concert Band

(Grades 3 - 3.5)
Designed for high school groups and upper- level middle school groups. Independence is encouraged, but many lines are cross-cued. Usually includes an expanded percussion section.

FJH Symphonic Band

(Grades 4 - 5)
Appropriate for accomplished high school, college, and professional groups. Includes expanded instrumentation and ranges.

The Reimagine Initiative

(All Levels)
Music reimagined for flexible ensembles with adaptable instrumentation.

Canzonique Music

For mature performing ensembles and artists, including chamber music and full band. Many of these pieces have been featured at national and international conventions.
