Music List

Welcome friends and colleagues,

Beginning this year we are beginning an open-source recommended music list. The purpose of this list is to help new teachers looking for quality literature or seasoned teachers who would like to find something fresh. All current and retired WV Music Educators are welcome and encouraged to add selections to the list. When adding selections please list them in alphabetical order by title.

If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to the state solo and ensemble chair, William Cosby (cosbywl@gmail.com). With your help this could become a wonderful resource for educators around the state.
