This study is qualitative in nature and explores the felt experiences of high school and university wind band educators and students from various demographic groups regarding their perspectives on what qualifies a piece of wind band literature as meritorious. The study included a survey, for both director and student participants, which examined the preferences of both directors and students and offered an opportunity to voice their opinion of what is quality wind band literature in their own words. Through the process of surveying high school and university wind band directors and students, four major themes emerged that directors in current practice and pre-professionals in training can apply to their wind band literature selection.
