This is a comprehensive band method in 3 parts, which combines a strong performance-centred approach with music theory, music history, ear training, listening, composition, improvisation and interdisciplinary and multicultural studies. With full colour drawings and colour-coding of important text the series helps to motivate and inform, across the full range of band instruments.
This book is brilliant! I started having sax lessons just a few months ago and I needed an effective method of practice. My sight-reading of rhythm was my weakness but this book built up my competence. The computer software supplied with it is invaluable as I can practice at home and the software can grade me. It's like having a teacher with me whenever I want! My progress whilst using this book was amazing and my teacher noticed straight away and she is now using it with other students.
It is an invaluable resource and I recommended it to anyone starting out or who wants to improve their method and competence with playing in a band. Amazing!

Difficile à jouer chaque morceau dans ce livre parce que c'est pour tout les membres d'un bandas. Tant mieux, si on n'est pas seul ...
Après quelques exercices, il y a un morceau à jouer pour tester votre compréhension, mais celui on le trouve à plusieurs pages en avance. Je n'ai pas appris grande chose bien que quelques des morceaux soient assez bien connus. Anonymous
