Authors: Jihong Cai, Nikita Mamedov

Abstract - Educators in K-12 learning aim to expand and diversify performance opportunities for the students to cultivate their musicianship. Schools incorporate various teaching philosophies, including, but not limited to, student-centered and project-based pedagogies. An establishment of ensemble performance programs (bands, orchestras, and smaller-scale chamber groups) as part of music curriculum or extracurricular activities will undoubtfully create project-based opportunities in which students may participate. This research discusses the strategies to arrange popular, classical, and traditional music for K-12 ensembles, allowing instructors to include students of all playing levels in one performance group. This study also defines educational, technological, and organizational pitfalls of the music performance program.
