Level appropriate music that kids love.
This is a GREAT arrangement!
Accessible for MS groups, and one of the few arrangements to contain all of the service branches. It went over very well with our community, and they loved that we were able to recognize all our vets with the script that was included.
Hungarian Dance #5
A well planned out group of exercises to supplement the band curriculum.
We Three Kings
Great music for student sight reading.
I have se them for sight reading.
It was exactly what my daughter wanted. She plays the music daily.
Great piece. Fun rhythms. Kids really like it.
Armed Service Medley for Jazz Band
Doo Dah is a great arrangement of the classic tune "Camptown Races". Optional high notes in trumpet and the xylophone solo makes for a little challenge but well within reach of beginners/2nd year students.
This is a great tool!
My 9-11yo students love exploring this piece. It’s very easy to teach too. We are going at it slowly but enjoyably, surely. They were already singing their own parts on the first day of opening the piece. Lesson no2 coming up this Friday. Wish us luck!
This is a great arrangement for a young student band!
My younger students are doing great with this piece.God Rest Ye Merry, Angels We have Heard on High and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. Nice medley.
I appreciate how quickly my order was filled. Thank you for taking the time to provide this service.
Nice march piece for my beginners. They enjoy playing a "real" piece of music.
I am very pleased with this purchase. I know that my students like the song and we will be playing it for our Christmas Concert this year.
I have really liked all the songs that I have purchased on my own the past few years.
Have a Blessed Day!
I use the book as a warm-up. I like that the book is organized by key. Each has a tone builder, major scale, arpeggio, interval study, scale in 3rds, 3 note sequences, chorale, rhythm studies, excerpts of familiar songs in the key. Exercises are easy enough that they can be played with limited rehearsal so students can focus on fundamentals.
The kids are enjoying the fun rhythms and blues feel of this piece. Great song for young bands.
Our band really enjoyed playing this piece - it's not too difficult, yet still "sounds like real music". I'm currently looking for more works by this composer!
My band kids really enjoy playing this one!
This chart works very well with my concert band. Big sound with the well blocked voicing. The children love it! Well done Tom!
The children love this one. Very descriptive I am told by one of my Concert Band members!
This is fun. Super energy and also a good learning/teaching tool regarding classic rock music and it's timeline. Well done!
A very nice salute to our military medley for jazz band!
I have a small band (14 students) in a small, rural town. I bought this for my beginning band - a group of students that never practices and has about an octave under their belt. This song offers a great opportunity for low brass/winds to exert a little independence, a chance for everyone to experience eighth notes, and a fun, minor melody. My students LOVE it!
Excellent! Love the product and the service!
I played this song with my band 6 years ago, and I am still so genuinely awestruck at how outstanding this piece is. The trumpet solo is phenomenal. The whole overture is pure magic. I downloaded the audio, and I listen to it all the time while working. Thanks for the beautiful music!
I direct a small pep band (less than 20 students) and this piece is really great for the group. It is very accessible, and we play it quite a bit faster than the indicated tempo to spice things up a bit!
This is a great contrast to our usual boppy peces and I am sure the band members will love it.
This piece is impressive and unique. It holds one’s attention throughout the performance, and has interesting phrasing. I personally love the melody and think the title is perfect for this piece.
This is a nice setting for a beginning band favorite. Very playable, but also with some achievable challenges, including the key change in the middle of the piece. My students are excited to perform this!
My kids really enjoy the piece. We have a very small ensemble with limited instrumentation and it still works!
My students Andrés me realy enjoyed the compositions for beggining bands, I hope buy more soon.
I'm using this piece with my small HS band, has nice flowing melodic line and contrasting tempo. The piece works well for me, and the students like it. For the site itself , I like the pdf score with audio play to give myself and the students a listen prior to purchase.
First rate piece by a first rate composer. In general
all the works my bands have played from this site and we have played a lot of them have been good-excellent. My adult band which performs a wide range of composers etc picked Mr Tucker as one their favorite composers along with Beethoven Mozart and Gershwin. They are very musical and very creative works especially given the restraints of writing for a set level, they always work and sound good in concert, doublings are well thought.. Even the grade 1 pieces have real musical interest.
I am a band conductor pro musician/composer.
They enjoyed getting to play this at Gathering of Bands so much that they wanted to purchase it to play it at our Winter Concert after the event.
