The Art of Expressive Playing

The Art of Expressive Playing
A Study in Individual, Small Ensemble, and Large Group Performance

While there are no absolute rules concerning expressive playing and phrasing, this innovative series clearly lays out basic concepts that help players become good musicians.

The series focuses on the natural relationship between meter, rhythm, contour, tonality, style and historical period, and guides the player to a greater understanding of factors that can improve performance. This one of a kind text, written for teachers, woodwind, brass, and percussion players, will help stimulate and cultivate more musical playing by individual musicians and by ensembles as a whole.

Teacher’s Manual w/ CD (JB51 - $26.95)
Brass and Percussion (JB52 - $9.95)
Woodwinds and Mallets (JB53 - $9.95)

The Spirit of an Eagle
Larry Clark

The Spirit of an Eagle
Larry ClarkThis is one of Larry Clark's most successful and performed pieces. It is a standard overture with a glorious slower B section, and is already on the required music lists for many states (including Texas and Florida). Now it can be performed by a band with instrumentation problems in this new flexible scoring edition. As few as five players and percussion can perform a full-sounding version of this wonderful work. To prove it, we recorded an excerpted version of the piece where we did just that.
