    In a couple of weeks time I am leading the "Beginner Band" at a music camp. Does anybody have any dead easy arrangements of anything I could use.

    Definitely want something that they would find interesting.

    Apart from the usual suspects of preliminary band book and the jock mckenzie stuff, Gary Young does some fab easy stuff including a beginner band set here

    Just Can't go wrong with the Jock McKenzie stuff. Phillip Sparke sent me some info which looks great also. Check his website out. Sorry, don't have the address to hand but should come up on Google

    Check out our Springboard Series titles (usable by a small inexperienced band) & our Junior Springboard Series (for small beginner groups but they expand successfully for a larger band).
    You can listen to the music and see the scores online to see if they're suitable.

    Please note : We close on Monday evening (26th July) for a summer break, but any online orders placed before then will be dispatched immediately before we close.

    Craig, First Things First has been very popular.

    First Things First provides 16 elementary pieces for a four-part ensemble. The music is varied in genre and offers a superb resource for those musicians at an early stage of development.

    In addition to the pieces there are basic exercises, musical terms and symbols which can be found at the back of each part book. These are also included in the Full Score. A free-of-charge demonstration CD of all the music is available on request.

    Hi Craig,

    I would echo the earlier post recommending Gary Young's arrangements. All very playable and most importantly recognisable tunes. Our beginner band has had great sucess with them.

    Also i would recommend the "little shiny brass" beginner book - has 5 pieces in it, all 5 or 6 part arrangements and are great fun to play too.

    Good luck and enjoy!
