Philip Sparke: Skilful Solos (Book/CD)

Books and CDs | Trombone

Publisher: Anglo Music
Composer: Philip Sparke
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Philip Sparke’s Skilful Solos is the second volume of a progressive series of solo books that takes the young wind player from beginner to accomplished musician. Following on from the first book in the series Starter Solos this collection generally contains longer pieces suitable for the developing young musician.

Specifically tailored for each instrument, Skilful Solos introduces the concept of phrasing by suggesting suitable breathing points and takes the player into new keys with extended instrumental ranges, new notes being introduced in a gradual and logical manner. Skilful Solos comes with a play-along CD. The advantages of playing either with Piano or CD accompaniment are that the beginning player can now experience the important aspects of ensemble playing from their earliest lessons, thus developing the essential skills of listening while they play and maintaining strict tempo, which is not always achieved when playing alone.

          Tunes are varied and interesting and the backing CD is very helpful and of a good quality whilst not being too busy.
