About our Series

ACADEMY BAND SERIES

The Academy Band Series is targeted toward first and second year players.  These selections are written with limited ranges and simple rhythms.  They also provide good material for middle school bands to develop their sight reading skills and give players at all levels in these bands the chance to succeed.  Many of the selections in the Academy Band series come with Advanced and Basic parts, again to help develop or challenge multiple skill levels.  Grade level 1 - 2+

CONCERT BAND SERIES

The Concert Band Series targets students in their third year, or more, of playing.  There are typically multiple parts (1st and 2nd); clarinet 1 parts are written over the break and ranges and rhythms are more advanced.  Low woodwind and brass players have more independent parts from each other with cued notes to help out if needed. These arrangements also work well for young high school bands looking for material that doesn't require as much prep time for them.  Grade 2 - 3+

WIND ENSEMBLE SERIES

The Wind Ensemble Series targets students in their fifth year of playing and higher.  Full instrumentation with independence, but with cues, are available on most selections.  These are great selections for Community Bands, Colleges or other bands looking to add to their music library.  Grade 3 - 5+

BRASS QUINTET SERIES

The Brass Quintet Series has a full range of levels written for the traditional brass quintet of two trumpets, horn, trombone and tuba.  Check scores to see when alternate parts are included as well as some charts with added percussion.  This series has material for beginning quintet literature through professional level material.  Grade 1.5 - 5+

JAZZ SERIES
