My 5th grade beginning band really enjoyed playing The Easiest/Worst Rock Song Ever. Easy enough to pick up quickly and fun to play. A little challenging for percussion.
Good fun to play. We will use it. Found it through Tom but couldn't through on line catalog. Our sax quartet needs more pieces like this. Thanks
I absolutely love the ease of the website. So easy to find music!
Your alto saxophones will need to learn a couple of new (low) notes, but other than that, your beginners will love this piece. We will perform it for our winter concert and they are super excited about it! Great practice and enforcement of quarter notes and quarter rests. Thank you. It also didn't put a hole in our band budget. I appreciate that too!
I really like this song "He Is Born.". My band students like it, too. We will be playing it along with "A Christmas Three" in our Elementary Band Christmas Concert this year.
The Huron Carol
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!
