    Sold/Expired New Composing Book for Children

    Hello! I have written a little book for young musicians to inspire them to get creative and write their own music.

    Beginner Music Books - Teachers

    Currently Team Brass/Woodwind is in the lead. Another surprise as I don't use that one regularly. (even though it is what I started on!) Followed closely by Abracadabra. Also, Cello Time/Fiddle Time is used by 100% of string teachers so far who have done the survey.

    Beginner Music Books - Teachers

    Interesting. The most popluar music books so far cost an average of £9 yet the majority (approx. 70%) of teachers have said they would only expect parents to pay an average of about £6.00!

    Beginner Music Books - Teachers

    Thank you. And a good point. I find the Alan Pring book is better for older pupils/adults for that reason and group lessons are often difficult. I was thinking of younger students when making the survey but didn't actually specify that. Some interesting responses already!

    Fanfare Music for Junior Bands

    I have recently written a piece for a training band I conduct at work, called Jubilee. Great little piece and very appropriate for this year! We performed it at the Anvil in Basingstoke about a month ago, and it seemed to go down well with the audience as well as the players in the band. It is...
