Abstract
The modern high school band conductor enjoys a myriad of resources that exist to aid him or her in the task of selecting appropriate repertoire for their ensemble. One resource is the “selected,” “recommended,” or “prescribed” music list published by the state music association. These lists vary in content, grading, and purpose; some are intended for adjudicated or non-adjudicated events while others are geared towards state festivals or contests. Some are based on a variation of the traditional 1-6 grading system, while others employ a classification system based on school enrollment.

Numerous studies have examined the process band directors employ during repertoire selection. These studies suggest that state music lists are often considered as part of this selection process. However, few studies if any, have examined state music lists with regard to how they are structured, the repertoire shared across these lists, and the grading and classification systems that they employ.

In an effort to provide insight for music educators, particularly high school band conductors, this study is designed to offer a descriptive overview and comparison of the organizational structure, shared repertoire, and the grading and classification systems of state music lists for high school band.

In this study, a descriptive analysis was employed to examine and compare state music lists from around the United States. These lists were examined in three areas including (1) organizational structure and content, (2) repertoire that is shared across multiple lists, and (3) the grading and classification systems employed by each state list. Findings indicated that all the lists present information in somewhat of a different fashion. However, each list presents a core of information including title, grade or classification, composer, arranger, and publisher. Results indicated that many pieces of repertoire are indeed shared across state lists. In addition, traditional grading systems displayed a greater similarity in design than those using classification systems. Varying grade levels and amounts of repertoire were shared across the lists.
