The BRASS GROOVES series is designed to encourage young students to get involved in small ensembles, but the books have proven to be a lot more versatile.
COLLEGES — Perfect for student quintets to supplement the traditional repertoire; nice recital encores; especially effective on casual gigs. —Ideal for faculty quintets on school concerts.
GIGGING QUINTETS — Play the charts down once or twice and they are good to go! Also great for background gigs…maybe even dancing!
COMMUNITY BANDS — Start a quintet within your band. Play before, or within band concerts, or for other community events.
