Bandworld Magazine
Then and Now

The premier issue of Bandworld Magazine appeared in August of 1985 as a free publication sent to nearly 25,000 band directors throughout the United States. Shortly thereafter, two versions of each issue were printed, a free issue with limited page content and “The Fat Edition” for subscribers. It contained complete band arrangements in printable form, student sections, special in-depth articles and other valuable information.

In October of 2004, Bandworld Magazine became Bandworld Online. It still contains full band arrangements plus extensive audio and video distributed throughout nearly 100 pages per issue . The online format makes it possible for you to instantly use video and audio segments as well as the printed page. One thing that hasn’t changed: Our purpose to help you build better bands.
