I have several books on composing and music theory. I'd like to write some original music for concert band especially marches and am trying to figure out what makes a march vs a popular piece. "Arranging for the Concert Band" by Frank Erickson has been the most specific book for band music I've found. This book by Mark Camphouse's is an anthology of several composers and their ideas on the composing process. It offers no specifics of what rules or guidelines these composers use for writing for band. They discuss their creative process which is pretty generic and probably could apply to most creative work in the visual or literary arts as well.

I hope that folks considering this book will read my review to decide if this is what they want. There were none when I bought it although I have to admit my desires and the title made it an impulse buy.

It is an informative look into the composing process from different points of view. Problem is, it is a highly biased book. Some of the featured composers are worthy of the honor while others that deserve to be there are completely ignored and instead mickey mouse writers are featured. In the first volume the author featured himself. How crass. If you are not "part of the club" you don't get in!!
