From the Publisher

The Grade By Grade series draws on the rich and varied Boosey & Hawkes catalogue of classical, contemporary and educational repertoire, highlighting composers including Serge Prokofieff, Dmitri Shostakovich, Karl Jenkins, Carol Barratt and Christopher Norton, alongside arrangements of traditional music from around the world by Peter Wastall, Vera Gray and others.

Carefully selected by Janet Way, this practical anthology provides the complete repertoire resource for the aspiring Grade 4 alto saxophonist and creates the perfect package for teaching, exam preparation and performance.

Each volume contains:

  • a selection of pieces & short studies, each complemented by a useful practice and performance tip
  • grade-appropriate scales and arpeggios linked to the repertoire through bespoke text and exercises
  • brand new sight-reading and improvisation activities
  • newly-commissioned aural awareness tasks
  • a piano accompaniment booklet
  • Full performance demonstrations, piano accompaniment tracks and grade-appropriate aural awareness resources available online.

She is a tutor for the LRAM woodwind teaching course at the Royal Academy of Music, and has worked as a mentor and diploma examiner for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music.
