“Really good teaching material!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

This is part of a series of publications for wind quartet aimed primarily at younger players. The attraction here is partly the material (everyone will know some of the tunes at least) and partly the sensitivity of the arrangements themselves. All parts have the tune at various points and often it is passed around phrase by phrase to encourage listening and ensemble skills.This is a great series at a really good price.
