A fun and inspiring way to play together for children in the early stages of learning an instrument. Even players who only know a couple of notes can join in the band. Mixed ability parts are provided for every instrument likely to turn up in a school band. Simply mix and match according to what's available.
Pack includes teacher's score, free CD, three copies of C instrument melody 1 and 2, C harmony 1 and 2, B Flat melody, easy C and easy B Flat, two copies of Bass and one copy of E Flat and percussion.
An excellent book. Perfect to introduce ensemble playing to children who have been learning their instrument a short while. Please do another Sarah Watts! Anonymous

Very pleased with this book. The parts are simple but the overall effect is good. The music is jazzy without being cheesy and patronising. Melody parts in C tend to be a fair bit harder than the other parts. If you have strong musicians who play transposing instruments you may need to do a bit of transposing to challenge them.
This is a great book to start at band with. Anonymous

I have been using this book with all my flute, drums and piano pupils ... and they love it! They enjoy the pieces, both older students and of course the young ones. I have also used the material with a mixed band, with great success. I give it 4 stars because there is no easy piano part. Anonymous
