Excelcia Music Publishing announces the launch of new product, Director Designs, a groundbreaking approach for band and orchestra directors to easily choose and create printable warm-up and technique exercises which are programmed into a single PDF.  The customizable book format offers directors endless combinations to design the PDF exactly how they want, and then print and disseminate it to students for practice and play.

“Director Designs is a passion project come to life,” remarks creator, Tyler Arcari.  “When I was in the classroom, I spent countless hours with piles of resources trying to create the perfect packet for my students. And often crunched on time, “winging it” was a sad part of life.  Director Designs solves this problem faced by everyday music teachers and it does so in a new, elegant, and technologically-forward way by giving directors the power to create the perfect practice tools with just a few clicks of a button.”

This groundbreaking new resource offers directors, at their fingertips, a huge collection of easy-to-design print-and-play exercises for everyday ensemble use.  The one PDF houses the entire set, created so that a director can print a page per exercise and everyone in their ensemble can play instantly.

Excelcia Music Publishing’s Director Designs is available from music retailers everywhere and from the publisher at $150 for Full Band version, $100 for String Orchestra version.  A demo version is available at the publisher’s website at
