Carl Fischer Music Unveils the Premiere Performance Series for Beginning Band

New York, NY — Carl Fischer Music is excited to announce the Premiere Performance Series for Beginning Band, featuring all-new works at Grade ½. All pieces use only the first 6 notes of the B-flat scale, and the instrumentation is limited to one instrument on each part, with the bass line covered by all low brass and low woodwinds. The Premiere Performance Series includes alternate parts for horn in easier ranges, trombone parts that do not go past fourth position, a bass clarinet part that can also function as euphonium T.C. part, and clarinet parts below the break. Each piece has simple rhythms made up of whole, half and quarter notes, and if eight notes are used, there are only two repeated. With active percussion writing, the timpani part is optional, and the pieces are kept short in consideration of young embouchures. Now students with as little as ten weeks of study can show off their beginning skills with these exciting, diversely styled concert pieces from Carl Fischer Music! Click here to see and hear them all.
