Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

Young players will absolutely love this book which features tunes from around the world. Each one is pitched at an easy level with simple rhythms and a moderate range of notes and are always in the style of the music of that particular country. Add in the CD accompaniment which uses the instruments to go with it and everyone is immediately transported. No travel? No problem - this book will take you wherever you want to go. Magic!

From the Publisher

All aboard for a musical tour of the globe with Mike Mower!

Junior Musical Postcards contains eleven sparkling pieces in fascinating world music styles, tailor-made for developing musicians.

The trip begins with a boisterous Cajun stomp, and concludes with an elegant Viennese polka, taking in stops in countries as varied as China, Jamaica, and Wales along the way.

Available in editions for alto saxophone, flute, clarinet, trumpet and violin, each book contains melody lines with chord symbols to aid improvisation.

Every piece is brought to life with a postcard of essential background information and playing tips. A book of keyboard accompaniments is available separately.

Spectacular and authentic audio performances and backing tracks of every piece played by bands and musicians from all eleven countries are available online.

A professional musician for 40 years, Mike Mower has played in orchestras, big bands, chamber ensembles, shows, jazz bands, and recording sessions around the world in classical, jazz, Latin, and rock styles on flutes, saxophones, and clarinets.

He has written concertos for international solo artists and orchestras and concert music for ensembles of all sizes – in addition to composing, arranging, and producing TV themes and commercial music albums.

His fun but challenging educational music has been enjoyed by a generation of younger players. The Musical Postcards and Junior Musical Postcards series (with accompaniment by some international recording artists too famous to mention!) celebrates authentic music genres from all over the globe.
