I am a music teacher in Canada that is eager to start a Dixieland band.  We 
have a number of keen students that have played in our "traditional" jazz 
ensembles but are looking at exploring the roots of these styles in a more 
intensive setting.  I have two questions:  (1) Is there a preference 
concerning the type of banjo used in most instrumentations (4-string or 
5-string) - and- (2)  Can you recommend a resource for musical arrangements 
(high school level players).  I would appreciate any assistance or advice 
that you could provide!
