BRASS MONKEYS INFORMATION
“Brass Monkeys” is the new innovation by Pennine Music Publishing. The music published under this label is designed specifically for junior/training brass bands. Each item is arranged for a full brass band, from soprano to BBb Bass and even includes Drum kit and Glockenspiel parts for your percussionists.
Many of the parts are doubled up to ensure that you do not need a full compliment of players to perform these pieces. To help with the confusing aspect of the lower instruments written in treble clef, bass clef parts are also included for Baritones, Euphoniums, Trombones and Tuba, meaning that even though the brass band treble clef transposition isn’t primarily taught by teachers to new students, they can still join in as they will be familiar with bass clef.
As well as all this, each “Brass Monkeys” publication comes with a license from us to the user to allow photocopying of any of the parts supplied with each publication (for use with the group or band that purchased the initial set). That way if you’re lucky enough to have 6 trombones & 5 basses – this isn’t a problem!
In a nutshell, the “Brass Monkeys” publications feature…
· Full Score and Full Brass Band Parts
· Percussion & Tuned Percussion Parts
· Easy Keys & Time Signatures
· Bass Clef Parts for Baritones, Trombones, Euphonium & Tuba included
· An Unlimited Photocopy License for the Purchasing Group or Band
· Doubling of Parts & So Playable By Small or Large Ensembles
· High Frequency of Rehearsal Marks So Rehearsal Time Isn’t Wasted
· Original Compositions & Arrangement of Well Known Tunes
· Optional Octaves (for your braver players!)
