The Beginning Brass Quintet Series is designed for younger brass players getting their first experience with a
small ensemble -- as well as weekend warriors who may not have the time to keep their chops at a professional
level and professionals who like to keep some less taxing arrangements in their concert book. Instrument
ranges are written to Level 2 guidelines, and there are no sixteenth note rhythms. Many phrases begin with
several instruments starting in unison to help young players feel confident and find their partials before moving
into harmony with the rest of the quintet. These arrangements are very straightforward, not too lengthy,
and use a minimum of close harmonies (in other words, the French horn and trombone won't spend the whole chart a
half step away from each other). Despite these guidelines, the pieces all sound very professional and are
suitable for any concert setting.
