Concert Band

Phrygian Rock

By Yvonne Barton-leach

Regular price $24.00 Sale

Grade Beginner Concert Band.  Duration 2'.00     
The Church modes have long influenced the writing of music. PHRYGIAN ROCK is a fun and delightful way to introduce your young concert band players to the Phrygian mode.   PHRYGIAN ROCK is a laid-back rock tune that practically plays itself. Encourage your percussionists to keep a firm tempo as you would find in a rock song. Work to keep the band balanced so the tune does not get over powered by the harmony.  Composed 2016.

Play with Ease

BAND TRAINING PROGRAM
This training band program has been developed to allow beginners to start together whilst playing some of their easiest notes. This requires the use of harmony from the outset. Concert B-flat is easy to produce on a clarinet and a saxophone but not at all easy on a flute or an oboe. The same note is easy for many a player of the trumpet, baritone and trombone yet some find a concert F easier, so there are options for those players. Horn players often find a concert F easier to play than a concert B-flat at, also a concert F is easily playable on both a single B-flat at horn and a single F horn. Concert A is an easy note on the flute and oboe, although a B would be easier, the A is not much more complicated and provides a nice note in the dominant chord of B-flat at major. The whole process begins with alternating B-flat at and F chords. Often, training band leaders direct from a keyboard, so the chords are shown above the flute part to make it simple to play along.
Each student has a page advising the numbers to practice each week and the program is divided into sections to give the feeling of completion from time to time. It is important that each band be directed at the most appropriate pace, therefore the music director should feel at liberty to overlap the designated weekly projects, hold them back, or skip some altogether. Much effort has been made to progress the players of an instrument at a decent pace. It is anticipated that many players will be ready to play other published material by the time they can play the numbers at the end of the book. 

Composed 2018

Sootie

By Robert Burrell

Regular price $51.00 Sale

Stage Band for advanced school students

Sootie is a smooth 'cool jazz' like work with an overall 'laid back' feel. Suitable as a gentle number between more lively presentations. It is in rondo form with the saxophones featured in the A sections. It gets its title from a black alley cat.
Composed 2012 rev. 2015

        Composed 2017

        At a time when the diversification of species and the natural environment is fast disappearing,

        Symphonic Poem "The Passing" (concert band)

        By Mark John Mcencroe

        Regular price $168.00 Sale

        For Concert Band, c.7'30
        Composed 2017

        This piece was written in the mood that one would associate with the passing of a loved one.  A lament - a process of letting go of old entrenched ideas and value systems that no longer apply or are relevant in one’s ever changing life.  A compelling process, hard and painful, a part of life; a necessity for good mental health, happiness and peace of mind.   (Mark John McEncroe)
