Music for trumpet, trombone and all brass and wind instruments.
Welcome to "BESPOKE BRASS" - a new approach to ensemble music and methods for young
musicians learning the trumpet, trombone, euphonium or any other wind or brass instrument.
Educational, enjoyable and affordable.
A new and different method, full of exercises and information carefully worded for
the young person starting out on trumpet, trombone or any other brass instrument.
New notes and ideas are introduced gradually, and presented in a way that young musicians
can relate to, and cope with both physically and mentally.
The contents cover roughly up to ARSM grade 4, but it is not actually aimed at examinations,
rather more at providing sensible and enjoyable learning. The fact that few "named
tunes" are used encourages the players to read music rather than just play by ear.
The Trumpet version is suitable for all treble clef valved instruments including
cornet, tenor horn, baritone, euphonium and tuba.
The Trombone version written in the bass clef also caters for orchestral and wind
band euphonium and baritone players.
