Richard Ling: Orchanics 1 - Eight Varied Pieces For Orchestra

Books | Orchestra

Publisher: Goodmusic
Series: Orchanics
Format: Sheet Music | Score and Parts

Three new collections of varied pieces for orchestra for players from beginner to grade 3 standard.

This collection of three books, each containing eight varied pieces, has been compiled to capture the imagination of young players and to introduce them to a wide range of musical styles.

Special effects appropriate to each instrument provide additional learning points and great entertainment both in rehearsal and performance. There are glissandos for strings and trombone, flutter tonguing for flute and trumpets (for those able to) and a range of vocal sounds for all!

The scoring allows these pieces to be played by various combinations of instruments. Ideally, your orchestra should have some instruments from each section, but if not (for example, no brass), then the supplementary piano part (available separately) can be used to fill the gaps. It can also be used to provide extra support in rehearsals.

As well as the normal percussion parts, some of the pieces make use of a drum kit. For orchestras without a drum kit player, a drum kit and bass backing track is available to download free of charge either as MP3 or WAV files.

      This set of music is brilliant for a young beginner orchestra - would thoroughly recommend this and the other titles in the series.
