Instrumentation: Treble Clef Brass
Developed over years of teaching beginner students, this collection of short tunes is what I now use when starting a player off. Much like other beginner method books, it starts very simply from low C working up the scale until the player has learnt many tunes and can play the octave, including basic sharps and flats. As a teacher I focus on my students doing simple things well, and the simplicity of the tunes here allows us to work on rhythm and articulation as well as notes.
I am confident that once my students can play the tunes on the final few pages (Star Wars and Harry Potter seem popular!) then they are more than ready to move onto Grade One!
