Kaleidoscope - Woodwinds for intermediate students

By Joanne Burrows, Brennan Keats, Phillip Wilcher

Regular price $20.00 Sale

Solos, duets and trios - for beginner students.

The Kaleidoscope series is aimed to provide teachers with a resource that has multiple options regarding the combination of keys, instrumental parts, repertoire, solo works and ensemble pieces including duets, trios and quartets providing flexi-score arrangements. For Theory, Musicianship, Music Craft

  • A range of genre’s and different composers are included across a number of different books.
  • Part one of the duets can be played as a solo piece.
  • The pieces are designed to build sight-reading and performance skills for instrumental students.
  • Playing with other students encourages peer learning, is motivating and fun and a great way to introduce performance for the shy or timid student.
  • Most of the piano parts are intentionally simple, so that a piano student may provide the accompaniment for either the solo or the duet.

In the easy and medium difficulty volumes pieces are presented in several keys.

  • Sometimes the arrangement of the duets is slightly modified to suit the range of the instrument or the difficulty level, thus the parts I and II are not identical across each key.
  • There is a simple piano accompaniment for most of the duets and may be performed by a student or the teacher.

  • Parts are included where required.

    Multi-moded

    By Michael Hugh Dixon

    Regular price $17.00 Sale

    Warm-ups, scales, chromatics
    for French Horn with Piano accompaniment


    Multi-moded is written for students wanting to warmup with the assistance of a pianist or play along with a MIDI file. The four pieces are also good for students who have some musical skill already but may be undergoing embouchure rehabilitation.

    The last piece in the set (IV Chromatic) can be played by those more advanced as an encore piece, freely changing octaves in different repeats. The composer has done this, with the gradually accelerando the music becomes quite exciting.

    The audio file can be downloaded or played on the YouTube Channel The Brass

      Play with Ease

      By Michael Hugh Dixon

      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.
