Summary: In the American wind band community, the legacy of James Edwin Croft (Director of Bands, Emeritus, The Florida State University) as a teacher, conductor, and pedagogue is formidable. It is the purpose of this document to offer insight on this legacy, specifically by analyzing transferable teaching elements including score study principles, rehearsal pacing/structure, and gestural philosophy. This is augmented by specific quotes from Croft relating to certain elements of teaching, with an abridged biography. These resources are offered in light of the fact that relatively few public records exist which document the late Dr. Croft’s teaching. This document, when coupled with the discussed rehearsal recordings, should serve as a sound guide for teachers seeking to learn from the master teacher.
