Quick Overview

Andy Balent and Joe Compello have done it again. Following the great success of their collaboration on Ensembles Sound Spectacular, Grade Two, they created an outstanding folio for the Grade One Band. This very easy collection of original pieces and arrangements for beginning band contains music that is enjoyable and exciting for young players and can also be used to aid in the teaching of basic fundamentals of music and band performance. All pieces are correlated with Book One of the Sounds Spectacular Band Course and are designed to sound great with an imbalanced instrumentation or larger, fully provided ensembles. They will also be a great supplement to any band method you are currently using. This folio is written for the basic instrumentation that is common to most beginning bands. There is only one flute, clarinet and trumpet part and the low instrument parts are all together. As long as all parts are included, even the smallest ensemble will make a very solid sound at this level. First Concert Folio contains the following selections: Ain't Gonna Rain No More, Aura Lee, Captain Andy, Chant For Band, Jingle Bells, London Bridge is Rockin' Down, The Mouse in the Clock, O Come Little Children, Old Mac Donald's Band, The Olympians, The Sailor and the Bear, Skip To My Lou, The Old Man Plays Trumpet, The Victors Wolfgang in the Percussion Box.
