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

                  Outdoor Suite

                  By Rod Heard

                  Regular price $17.00 Sale

                  Trumpet and piano - suitable for intermediate grades, 4-5

                  The 4 pieces comprising the Outdoor Suite are written with the young trumpeter in mind featuring comfortable keys, phrasing and range that will suit a player of intermediate grade.

                  The time durations and rhythmic figures are within the skill set of a young player but with some challenges, particularly the syncopations in some of the pieces.
