Introducing an exciting new series for Beginner+Junior Wind Ensembles.

THE BANDWAGON BOOK

Why not jump on the Bandwagon?!?

An exciting new series featuring versatile arrangements and compositions for the Beginner Wind Ensemble. The music in this first book has been chosen to enable musicians to sample ensemble playing at an early stage of their musical development. Each of the six pieces in Volume 1 has been orchestrated in simple yet effective four-part harmony and can be performed by a variety of wind instruments, with optional accompaniment provided by piano and drums. Parts are provided for instruments in Concert pitch; Bb; Eb; and F.

Each complete set also includes a CD featuring a full performance of each title together with two backing tracks for each piece - one with piano and one with piano and drums.
