Music

The Blow & Blast repertoire includes a high proportion of relatively easy woodwind ensemble music that nonetheless produces a rewarding effect in performance.

Some of our woodwind ensemble music is now available to purchase in PDF form, as follows:
   
www.woodwindcolours.com Collections of 8 - 10 pieces for particular woodwind combinations
(some are semi-flexible)
   
Trona's ScoreExchange page Individual items for various combinations, including some saxophone/brass and 'band' pieces.  Also the woodwind colours collections (minus some of the extras)

The music is ideal for:

  • Small school woodwind groups, particularly those involving younger pupils or in situations where potential rehearsal time may be limited

  • Families or groups of inexperienced woodwind players who would like to make music together and require effective pieces they can manage without the need for expert guidance

Staying on top of the music

The pieces include arrangements of traditional tunes, chamber and classical works.

Predominantly, notes and rhythmic concepts are kept simple.

As the music itself is not too challenging, players can focus on developing good ensemble skills.

There is some judicious doubling between parts to give support and build confidence.

Hoping for practice parts?

We are still considering how best to make practice copies of particular parts available to early-stage Blow & Blast participants.  Watch this space for updates!
