Carl Fischer Music Announces the I Used to Play Series,
Premiered at the 2010 NAMM Show

New York, NYCarl Fischer Music unveils I Used to Play, a new series of books for adults looking to get back into playing their instruments of yesteryear. I Used to Play will help jumpstart their memory and comfort with music because the #1 goal is to get people re-acquainted with their instrument(s) by providing them with types of music they want to play, like Pop, Jazz, and classic tunes, rather than just etudes. In addition, each book contains a CD with audio MP3 files of complete performances of most songs, plus accompaniment-only versions. This CD also contains printable PDFs of piano parts for practice or performance opportunities. Currently, the following instrument books are available in the series, with more to follow: I Used to Play Flute, by Larry Clark (WF89 $19.95), I Used to Play Trumpet, by Larry Clark (WF90 $19.95) and I Used to Play Violin, by Doris Gazda and Larry Clark (BF31 $19.95). I Used to Play is just the push former players need to fall back in love with their instruments again!
