Trumpet with piano accompaniment or play-along with the backing CD. On the CD each piece appears twice, first with and then without the solo line. Here are tunes and melodies that have not just been churned out, but have real character and charm. Contained within the eight tunes are a lovely variety of moods, tempos, styles and time signatures. The music more than depicts the various aspects of circus life, which their title suggests. Simply written but so effective, they really do help the pupil and teacher in learning the basics of dynamics. Grades 3-5.
